Ligue 1: Lille, PSG, Monaco, OL … the winners and losers of the weekend in the title race

Seven days before the end of the championship, LOSC took the lead in the standings thanks to their 1-0 victory against PSG, while AS Monaco overtook OL for third place. Five points separate these four leading teams, while two direct confrontations are scheduled by the end of May.

The final sprint is therefore launched for the title race, but also for qualification for the Champions League. The last international break over, the quartet at the top of the Ligue 1 standings played the 31st day on Saturday. Seven days from the denouement, Losc therefore signed the big blow with this 1-0 victory against Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes. The northerner club seized the leading position by taking three points ahead of its opponent of the day.

Behind, AS Monaco also carried out a good operation. His clear 4-0 home success against FC Metz allowed him to climb to the third step of the podium and the last qualifying place for the Champions League. Because a few hours later, in the evening, Olympique Lyonnais fell by conceding a disappointing 1-1 on the ground of RC Lens. OL, fourth (qualifying place for the Europa League), is now one point behind the Principality club, two behind that of the capital.

The classification after the 31st day

1. Losc ► 66 points · +32 overall goal difference
2. PSG ► 63 points +45
3. AS Monaco ► 62 points +26
4. OL ► 61 points +29

As a reminder, in the event of a tie in points, the clubs are decided by the best goal difference. If that is not enough, the results in direct confrontations are withheld.

The upcoming league schedule

By the end of the season, scheduled for May 23, two clashes between members of this top quartet are scheduled. The first on the occasion of the 34th day: Lyon-Lille, Sunday April 25 at 9 p.m. Then the following week, for the 35th round, Lyon continued with a perilous trip to Monaco. During the same weekend, the reception of RC Lens (5th) by PSG will also be to watch. Moreover, the Sang et Or will also try for the 36th day to be the scratching hair of Losc in the derby organized at the Bollaert stadium.
