As the Ligue 1 season draws in its final few weeks of excitement and drama, only two sides can look back at their seasons with pride and valor. For PSG, it’s back to the drawing board.
As the UCL matchday drew to a close, football fans worldwide had only one headline left in their minds: Barcelona are at crisis. Emery showed why the PSG board had gotten him and parted with Laurent Blanc.
Ligue 1 action continued this past weekend with PSG taking on league leaders Nice. A good draw away from home ensured the leaders could take away some positives for the remainder of the season.
Ligue 1 was messy and chaotic and nerve-wracking during the condensed gameweeks 15 and 16. Only Nice and Lille emerged from it resembling some sort of form, while the others suffered mighty blows.
The fairytale ride of Nice has faltered for the time being, as the injury of Mario Balotelli has meant that the club from the southeast of France are barely getting over the line right now.
PSG and Monaco were rampant in a weekend where Nice failed to register a victory over little ol’ Caen. However, some superior forces were plying their trade for the Parisiens in their latest victory.
This weekend is arguably the best we’ve had so far this season in terms of the fixtures that it entails. Nobody is probably going to watch only one game. But, if we had to, which would you pick?
Ligue 1 has started to offer bright spots for those who regress in its lack of competitiveness. This has the potential to continue further, but luck has a big part to play in that regard.
This weekend produced some of the most spectacular displays of football we’ve seen this year. Topped, of course, by City’s win over United, and Barca’s stunning loss to Alaves.
The UCL draw revealed the destiny of some of the competing clubs, as some cherished their luck, while others blasted theirs.
