In the last round of Ligue 1, Montpellier won for the first time since December 29. On the road, they were stronger than Auxerre, beating their opponent 2:0. Before that, the home team had four defeats in four games. Naturally, such statistics in 2023 could not positively impact the tournament situation. After 20 rounds in the French championship, Montpellier is in the 14th position with 20 points. The gap between Strasbourg and the relegation zone is five points, and the gap between Rennes and Eurocup competitions is 17 points. Montpellier's home statistics are 15th in Ligue 1, +3=1-6, 12:18 goal difference.
Last round, the Parisians again lost points in the French championship. After the pause for the 2022 World Cup, this is the third loss of points by the capital team. Recall that the Red and Blue lost on the road to Lans and Rennes before the draw with Reims in a home match. As a result, by the start of the 21st round of Ligue 1, PSG has a gap to Lens of only three points, and it is not sure that the capital team will be able to defend the title of the strongest club in France in the season 2022/23. It is worth noting that in the match against Reims, PSG deserved to score at least two goals but scored only once, which was the decisive moment in the final result of the game. PSG's away statistics are the best in the league, +7=1-2, 25:6 goal difference, though the Parisians lost their last two away matches.
