A much less exciting week for French clubs in the European Cup, with PSG being eliminated and two situations off to a bad start.
The elimination of PSG would constitute a major deficit in the Champions League, with a place in the semi-finals and then in the final over the past two years. This season again, Paris Saint-Germain is the French club with the most points, with 19 points collected, but this should not continue. As for the good news, both OL and OM have won and can consider qualifying for the quarter-finals, which will confirm this already promising season for French football. On the other hand, Monaco and Rennes have difficulty against Braga and Leicester, as is the case with Lille a week before the second leg against Chelsea. Suffice it to say that March could lead to skimming that would slow France, putting third place behind England and Holland for this season.

UEFA index for the 2021-2022 season
- England 16.428
- Holland 16200
- France 16083
- Spain 15000
- Italy 13.714
- Germany 13357
- Portugal 11.416
Because Spain is coming back strong, and they still have six clubs in the race, even if some of Sevilla’s squads are in difficulty. In any case, the double confrontation against the Portuguese Braga and Porto will count in the distance duel between the two countries for the famous fifth place in the UEFA index for the past five seasons, which still serves as a reference for the allocation of European places. So next Thursday’s return matches will be crucial to the end of the season.
