Smoke bombs landed on the lawn of Francis-Le Blé, very close to Lafont’s goal. The match is provisionally stopped!
Angers-Lille (0-0): Pereira Lage on the ground

Monaco-Troyes (1-0): WHAT A GOAL FROM HENRIQUE!
Henrique’s missile on a free kick! 25 meters from the goal in the middle, the Monegasque side takes his chance directly. He passes the wall and deceives the vigilance of Moulin, caught on the wrong foot.

Brest 0-1 Nantes
Monaco 0-0 Troyes

On a volley from Mendy, Jardim tries to catch the ball, which slips through his hands. It will finally be a corner for the SCO, which gives nothing.
Brest-Nantes (0-1): GOAL FROM KOLO MUANI!
Superb gesture from the international hopefuls! From the left, Merlin crosses towards Kolo Muani, surrounded by several defenders. This does not prevent him from placing a subtle deviation to deceive Bizot. Nantes leads 1-0!

The Brazilian right side tries to progress from the right, without success. The Monegasques dominate this start to the match.

Angers-Lille (0-0): first corner for the SCO
Boufal hits hard in front of the fort, Jardim spreads with both fists. On the second attempt, Pereira Lage crushes his recovery.
Monaco-Troyes (0-0): ESTAC aims for the pass of 6
Troyes is undefeated in its last 5 Ligue 1 games (3 wins, 2 draws). The Aube club has the opportunity to equal the longest unbeaten streak in its history in the top flight.
The Girondins give themselves some air
In the 1 p.m. match, Bordeaux has just won 3-1 against Metz after being behind. The Girondins left last place in the standings.
Monaco-Troyes: ESTAC can take a big step, Ben Yedder expected
Dislodged from his place as co-top scorer in Ligue 1 by Mbappé, author of a hat-trick this Saturday, Ben Yedder wants to recover his throne and carry his team (6th) to a third success in a row which would bring him closer to Europe. 15th with 5 points ahead of the Saint-Etienne barrage, ESTAC has the opportunity to distance itself from the relegation zone in the event of an exploit at Louis-II.
Brest-Nantes: a derby to reassure
Almost saved from the descent, Brest (12th) has nothing left to play for at the end of the season but wants to chain a second victory in a row for the first time since December. For its part, Nantes (8th) can still believe in a European qualification via the championship but victory is imperative to Francis-Le Blé.
Angers-Lille: the challenge for everyone
14th in the championship after 7 straight losses between January and March, the SCO is only 5 lengths ahead of the barrage and is not yet sure of being saved. Opposite, despite the Ben Arfa affair which shook the club this week, LOSC (7th) is in great shape (2 defeats in the last 18 games, 7 clean sheets in a row) and could tickle the top 5 in the event of victoire.

Why there are only 3 games at 3 p.m.
While the Sunday multiplex traditionally includes 4 matches, a change in programming linked to the OL match forced the LFP to make a small adjustment. Lyon will notably play at an unusual 7 p.m. schedule and the Bordeaux match has been brought forward to 1 p.m.
