Three teams in the lead

Three clubs share first place on the Ligue 1 Uber Eats table for the second half of the season. Despite falling to a first home loss of the season – 2-0 to Stade Rennais in Round 28 – overall league leaders Paris Saint-Germain have their noses in front, with 19 points scored in the nine games played since mid-season.

Two other teams follow the Parisians: a resurgent Montpellier HSC (who went from 15th to 11th place), who won their fourth game in five outings against Clermont (2-1); and an OGC Nice enjoying an incredible unbeaten run under new coach Didier Digard.

OGC Nice unbeaten since R20

Having moved from tenth to seventh in the overall standings, Nice are unbeaten in their last 11 games (six wins and five draws) in Ligue 1 Uber Eats, with three consecutive draws. This is the best current run in the championship following the defeat suffered by Stade de Reims against OM (1-2) on Sunday – their first in 20 rounds, which set an all-time record for the Champagne club.

As a result, Will Still’s team conceded second place on the table for the second half of the season, and now sit in fourth with 18 points.

On the other side of the coin, the result was an eighth consecutive away win for OM, who pushed back into the top five on the table for the second half of the season. Away from the Orange Vélodrome, OM have pocketed 15 points in five away games since the mid-point of the season.

In the home standings, RC Lens are still in first place, but Les Sang et Or have not had the best record since Round 20, with just seven points clinched. Meanwhile, Stade de Reims have pocketed 12 points in five games, with PSG and MHSC taking ten points apiece.
