PSG frustrated, Davis Cup, OM, Monaco: the news on a plateau
YESTERDAY At 6:03 AM
After four draws, Marseille, on the other hand, conceded a defeat in Istanbul against Galatasaray (4-2) which marks the end of their hopes of qualifying. Milik scored twice and Jorge Sampaoli’s team hit the bar twice, but Marseille’s defense was too far off the mark.
In Brondby, OL did not fall easy: already qualified, the Rhone team signed in Denmark its fifth victory (1-3) in as many games.
Finally, even neutralized by Vitesse Arnhem (3-3) at Roazhon Park, Rennais qualified for the 8th of the Europa Conference Conference thanks to the defeat of Tottenham against the Solvènes de Mura (2-1).
2. Tennis – Davis Cup: The Blues are doing well
Sluggish entry for the French team in Innsbruck, where it beat behind closed doors the Czech Republic 2 to 1. After the shock of the defeat of the experienced Richard Gasquet against the 143rd world player Tomas Machac, Adrian Mannarino made Jiri bend Vesely, 6-7, 6-4, 6-2, and the pair Nicolas Mahut / Pierre-Hugues Herbert, just crowned at the Masters, battled to overcome the tandem Jiri Lehecka / Tomas Machac, 3-6, 6 -4, 6-3.
A game lost and four sets dropped is already a lot and it almost forces the Blues to beat Great Britain on Saturday to secure first place in Group C. Because a place among the two best second of the six groups seems compromised .

With a record of four wins, three losses and one draw, Luka Karabatic’s teammates are back in the top 3 in the standings, ahead of FC Barcelona, defending champion and beaten twice in a row by Polish leaders Kielce.
