Stade Brestois consolidates its place as runner-up to PSG in Ligue 1, OGC Nice in doubt

Brest permanently established itself as runner-up to Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in Ligue 1, Sunday March 3, after its victory against Le Havre (1-0), for the 24th day of the French championship of football.

Eric Roy's men record their thirteenth match in a row without defeat. The Bretons are four points ahead of Monaco (3rd, 42 points) and nine behind the Parisian leader (55 pts). The Champions League is getting closer and closer to the Francis-Le Blé stadium.

The dynamic is the opposite for OGC Nice, beaten in Toulouse (2-1) and which is moving a little further away from the podium. With this defeat, the third in five matches, the Aiglons (40 pts) fell to 5th place in Ligue 1. Francesco Farioli's players have still not won a match on a trip since the start of the season. year 2024, despite the opening score of Terem Moffi (8th). The Niçois confirmed a bad statistic: they are the only team in the five major European championships not to have gleaned a single point after being behind this season.

A seventh rout for Nantes at Beaujoire

With their victory, Toulouse (10th, 29 pts) achieved a third success in Ligue 1 after victories against Lille and Monaco. A first since 2018. By knocking out a third club from the top 5, TFC also gave itself some breathing room. He is moving away from the relegation zone, especially after the defeat of Nantes – the seventh in a row at Beaujoire – in the afternoon.

Jocelyn Gourvennec's men (13th, 25 pts) lost (2-0) against relegated Metz (17th, 20 pts), who came within three points of Montpellier (15th), saved by Arnaud Nordin during the draw ( 2-2) against Strasbourg (12th, 26 pts). With Marseille, Strasbourg, Nice and Lyon for its next four matches, Nantes and its coach have reason to tremble for their place in the elite and on the bench.
