For the title of French champions, OL, OM, PSG, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Lille and Rennes are all within 6 points of each other. The title could be decided in the matches between the rivals for the crown. There will be 4 for OL, OM and Toulouse. 3 for PSG and Lille. 2 for Bordeaux and Rennes.

Apart from these summit games, the 7 clubs at the top end of the table will be up against sides that are still fighting for their survival in the L1. OM and PSG could also have the added distraction of their European adventure in the UEFA Cup. Bordeaux have the final of the Coupe de la Ligue to dispute.
