Souleymane Cissokho, triumph in front of 70,000 spectators

Score 10/10 

Souleymane Cissokho won the WBA intercontinental super-welterweight belt this Saturday against the Briton, Kieron Conway.

Victorious by majority decision of the judges (2 out of 3), the 29-year-old Frenchman won his 13th victory in as many pro fights.

The bronze medalist at the Rio Olympics was still scared during the 9th round with a powerful hook struck by Conway which touched the eye of the native of Dakar.

Apart from that, the Habs have always been serious and diligent during this match, with jabs from the left full face which made his opponent bleed from the nose in the 3rd round, he quickly gained the upper hand in the counting.

Taller, but less mobile, Conway hasn't capitalized on his size advantage.

Hamilton, King of Spain

Rating: 9/10

Fifth straight victory in Barcelona, ​​the sixth in Catalonia and therefore a 98th career victory the day after his 100th pole position.

The numbers speak for themselves.

The Briton is at home in Spain and he demonstrated it again on Sunday.

Helped by an aggressive two-stop strategy at Mercedes, Hamilton then did the job on the track as always.

He is the boss and Max Verstappen begins to see him dangerously slipping away from the drivers' standings.

The gap is now fourteen units.

Perfect weekend for the seven-time world champion.

Zverev impresses in Madrid

Score: 9/10

Fallen this week at the Masters 1000 in Madrid in particular Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem, the German Alexander Zverev completed his dream week with a victory in the final over Matteo Berretini 6-7, 6-4, 6-3.

Zverev, currently 6th in the world, wins the fourth Masters 1000 of his career, the second in Madrid and scores points three weeks before Roland Garros.

This is his second title of the season after Acapulco (Mexico) in March.

Louis Carbonel's vista

Rating: 8/10

France has only had Romain Ntamack and Mathieu Jalibert for a few months.

So, Louis Carbonel continues his little way, in silence.

Like his season of very good quality, the youngster trained at the Var club again achieved an exceptional performance during the victory of Toulon against Toulouse (44-10).

A double (41st, 62nd), but above all a faultless against the poles.

The Toulon opener therefore scored 29 points,

just that.

A nugget.

Bayern, champion for the ninth time in a row

Score: 8/10 

The Bavarians were already crowned German champions even before kick-off.

Defeated in Dortmund (3-2), earlier this Saturday, RB Leipzig allowed Munich to hang a ninth consecutive coronation.

But the Bayern players celebrated their title with the manner by pulverizing Borussia M'Gladbach (6-0).

Robert Lewandowski offered himself a hat-trick, bringing his number of goals scored in the Bundesliga this season to 39. The Pole is only one unit from the goal record scored in the same year, held by the illustrious Gerd Muller .

The only downside is the red card received by the former Parisian Tanguy Nianzou, five minutes after coming into play.

Antoine Griezmann in the hard

Score: 3/10  

Held in check by Atlético Madrid (0-0) at Camp Nou, Antoine Griezmann did not shine against his former club.

"Grizou" did not weigh offensively.

The French international spent the entire first half defending.

With only 27 balls touched, he did not have much to eat, except for a long shot easily captured by Oblak and a recovery countered by the Colchoneros defense.

A match to forget for the number 7 of Barça.

Second, Barça still missed an opportunity to take the lead in the championship.

OM's awkwardness in front of Saint-Etienne goals

Note: 3/10

Beaten in Saint-Étienne 1-0, Sunday, as part of the 36th day of Ligue 1, OM recorded a halt in the race for 5th place.

It is in Geoffroy-Guichard that the series of 5 matches without defeat of the Olympique de Marseille will have ended in this final sprint of the season.

The Phocaeans have however had opportunities.

But what awkwardness!

Like this muted recovery from Dario Benedetto (84th) or these imprecise heads of Balerdi (75th) and Milik (82nd).

OM had chances ... In vain.

Marseille has its destiny in its hands, but will still have to wait to seal it and be more realistic during the last two days.

Monegasque Kevin Volland, ghostly in Reims

Rating: 2/10

The German hardly existed in this meeting.

Very little used, he has absolutely no influence in the game of his team, nor on a frankly friable Reims defense.

He could have caused a penalty but the VAR has clearly shown that he had not suffered a fault from Faes (45th).

He served poorly Gelson Martins, whose movement was perhaps not perfect, who could have sheltered his family ten minutes from the end (79th).

Clearly not the best performance of his season. 


Clumsy but winner in Reims, Monaco back on the podium

A Sunday to forget for Alonso

Score: 2/10

This Grand Prix on his land should not leave good memories for the double world champion.

Tenth on the grid and tenth for a long time in the race, Fernando Alonso, suffering with his tires, tumbled at the end of the race to take a modest 17th place, behind in particular the two Williams.

It makes a mess.

In addition, Esteban Ocon, his teammate, placed ninth.

What undermine the morale of the Spaniard.
