France is sinking again, with only 7 points in 6 matches, but fortunately the Portuguese and the Dutch do worse, which maintains our advantage in the UEFA index.
Fortunately for our UEFA index, there are worse out there than France. Portugal (5 points) and the Netherlands (4 points) underperformed the sad total of the representatives of the French League, taking 7 points in 6 matches (2 wins, 1 draw, 3 defeats).
Nantes and Nice lead France
Since we have more clubs participating in the European arena (4 clubs for Portugal and the Netherlands, compared to 6 for France), we stay ahead, even if we lose one of our two games, we stay ahead. But it is finally good among the five “big European leagues”. If PSG are disappointed against Benfica, the defeats of Nantes at home (0-4 against Fribourg) and Nice (1-2 against Slovako) hurt a lot.
As usual, the English clubs are ahead by a large margin, with 19 points and are undefeated. Only Manchester City’s surprise draw in Copenhagen prevented the Premier League representatives from achieving a major win.
