Week 25 of Ligue 1
Certain teams were in action in midweek in the Coupe de France, including Ligue 1's three European adventurers PSG, ASM and EAG, who will also be in action next week on the continent. Before then, Week 25 could, after a look at the standings, bring more changes to the order of the top three. OM and PSG are hosting Stade de Reims and Stade Malherbe de Caen. Can either take provisional top spot in the league ahead of Lyon's trip to Lorient on Sunday night in the final match of the round? At any rate, both are capable of keeping the pressure on at the top...
Elsewhere, there's an interesting match-up between Les Girondins de Bordeaux and AS Saint-Etienne that offers Willy Sagnol's side the chance to close up behind Christophe Galtier's Verts. ASM need the points to keep their top three aspirations alive. Montpellier travel to the principality after their home loss to Lille, who host Nice this weekend. Lille could climb back into the top ten and overtake Nice with a win...
Toulouse are in free fall. Hovering just above the relegation zone, they entertain the Stade Rennais. The three points are crucial. FC Nantes host the Sporting Club de Bastia. Les Canaris are stuck in mid-table, while the Corsicans are still looking over the shoulders.
FC Metz are struggling. Bottom of the Ligue 1 table, they welcome EAG, who are in good form. Another defeat for the Lorraine club and they will be in real trouble... And then there's the relegation six-pointer between Lens and Evian... who will be smiling at the end of the weekend?
