LOSC takes another step towards the title, Marseille validates its ticket for Europe, while Nîmes is officially relegated. At the end of an animated multiplex, discover the tops and the flops of the 37th day of Ligue 1.



Tops

Lille provides the essentials

Four points for a title.

Leader, with its fate in hand, LOSC knew it was expected at the turn against Saint-Etienne.

Despite a shy start and an enterprising Saint-Etienne, Lille provided the essentials this Sunday by keeping a draw (0-0) which allows it to stay in the lead before the last day of the championship, despite the great Parisian success against Reims (4-0).

Lille would be champion if they win in Angers next Sunday (9:00 p.m.).

Monaco and Lyon continue their mano to mano

In a distant duel that continues every week, Monaco and Lyon have surrendered blow for blow in this multiplex.

Despite a quick opening of the score of the Nîmes (Koné, 5th), Lyon held its rank to win without trembling at the Costières (2-5).

For its part, Monaco has long led without trembling after goals from Ben Yedder (16th) and Golovin (29th).

Jostled in the second period, the Principality club clung to its success to keep third place (2-1).

The duel between the two clubs will end next week in Lens for Monaco and against Nice for OL.

Marseille validates its ticket for Europe

The misfortune of some makes the happiness of others.

If Lens and Rennes have cracked (see the Flops), Marseille took advantage of the missteps of its two opponents to get fifth place in Ligue 1, with forceps.

Because we had to wait for a penalty in additional time (3-2, Milik, 90th + 5) for OM to officially validate their ticket for the Europa League.

Mission accomplished for the Olympians.

Nantes and Lorient hang on

If the fight for Europe is raging at the top of the table, the battle for maintenance also offers us great emotions.

On the lawn of Dijon, already condemned, Nantes has found, as for some time, its football, offering itself a large success 4-0 out of its bases.

A victory that will not be enough to leave 18th place.

Because at the same time, Lorient won in extremis against Metz (2-1) and clings to its ambitions of maintenance.

Flops

Lens and Rennes crack

They are two of the big losers of this 37th day of Ligue 1. Both beaten, Rennes (1-2 in Monaco) and Lens (0-3 in Bordeaux) have lost precious points in the race for Europe and are will decide the last qualifying place at the last multiplex of the season, next Sunday (9:00 p.m.).

For Rennes it is a third consecutive game without a win, while Lens has a third consecutive defeat.

Nîmes officially descends

This is the information of the evening: Nîmes Olympique will regain Ligue 2 next season.

The Crocs, devoured by a ruthless Olympique Lyonnais (2-5) are now 5 points behind Nantes, 18th and play-off.

Too big a gap to fill on the last day.
