It appears as if the race for the Ligue 1 title is all but over. Apparently playing the extra games in the Champions League took too much of a toll on French giants like Lyon and Bordeaux.
Olympique Marseille has found itself standing at a comfortable five-point lead over AJ Auxerre, who currently has 55 points.
Over the weekend Lyon and Bordeaux battled to a 2-2 draw. And when I say battled, I mean battled.
In the closing moments of the match, a mass brawl ensued after a bad foul by Lyon defender Anthony Reveillere. Reveillere and his victim, Benoit Tremoulinas, as well as Jussie saw red in the final stages.
