RC Lens retook second place in Ligue 1 by winning 2-1 against Marseille in the clash of the 34th day, Saturday evening at the Bollaert stadium. Four days from the end, the Sang et or are ahead of the Olympians (3rd) by two points and are three points behind PSG, who play Sunday in Troyes (18th). Seko Fofana (42nd) and Lois Openda (60th) scored for Lens, and Dimitri Payet (88th) for Marseille who remained on a series of eleven matches without defeat on opposing ground in the league.

Lille and Rennes, beaten on Saturday in Reims and Nice, have stalled in the race for European places in Ligue 1. Lille, in fact, dreamed of temporarily climbing to 4th place, synonymous with qualification for the Europa League, but Losc has quickly disillusioned in Champagne (1-0), the fault of countless offensive clumsiness and a Reims goal signed Marshall Munetsi (21st). The Northerners remain fifth in the Championship with 59 points, a week before a decisive duel in Monaco, the current 4th which goes to Angers on Sunday (1 p.m.).

A little earlier, Stade Rennais was also very clumsy on the lawn of Nice (2-1). Only Benjamin Bourigeaud found the fault with an overpowered strike (78th), but it was too late. Indeed, the duo GaĆ«tan Laborde – Terem Moffi had distinguished themselves (50th, 72nd), to finally offer a home victory in Nice, which had been waiting for this since February 10. With 51 points, the Aiglons are eighth and come within five points of their opponents in the evening, 6th and disappointed. But only the first five places offer a ticket to European competition next season.

Sunday, Paris SG (1st) goes to Troyes (8:45 p.m.) in the heart of a new crisis and without Lionel Messi, suspended by his club. At the other end of the classification, Troyes and Ajaccio risk being relegated from this 34th day, alongside Angers, already sentenced to Ligue 2.
