It is coming to an end. The Ligue 1 series, 2021-2022 edition, ends this Saturday, with the ten matches of the 38th day, played from 9 p.m. The title ? It is all good. But from the fight for Europe to that for maintenance, there is no shortage of reasons to follow the multiplex. Behind these major collective issues, here are others, individual or more symbolic than significant, which will keep us going during the evening.Mbappé vs Ben Yedder, who will be top scorer?Ligue 1Mbappé, Messi, Di Maria and company at the training19 HOURS AGOWe don’t know what’s going through Kylian Mbappé’s head. We would like to know, moreover, to reveal it to you exclusively. But it is possible that the 23-year-old French international is not only thinking about the choice he has to announce, concerning his future. He has a goal under his nose, which his thirst for records cannot hide: to finish top scorer in Ligue 1. At the top of this ranking for the last three seasons, Mbappé had shared first place in 2019-2020, with Wissam Ben Yedder. (18 goals each, at the end of an exercise truncated by the health crisis). This same Ben Yedder is his main opponent again this year. 25 goals for the PSG striker, 24 for that of Monaco, who remains on a hat-trick. Saturday during the 38th day, Paris Saint-Germain will face a team from Metz who are fighting for their maintenance, at the Parc des Princes. ASM travels to Lens, in a meeting with high stakes, which will eclipse the individual design of Ben Yedder. But the place of dolphin of the Parisians will perhaps pass, for the men of the Rock, by the success of their captain. The decisive pass is as old as football. But its definition can still be debated. Ligue 1 considers as “official” the classification of the best passers in the championship only since 2007-2008. Over the period, the record in one exercise is held by Angel Di Maria, with 18 offerings, including 16 in the game, in 2015-2016. This benchmark is within reach, for Kylian Mbappé. The former AS Monaco player, who has broadened his palette with Paris this season, is clearly the leader after 37 days, with 17 assists, ahead of teammate Lionel Messi (13) and Benjamin Bourigeaud (Rennes, also 13). Guest to one day pass the 20-20 mark (in goals and assists) by Thierry Henry last Sunday, during the presentation of his UNFP trophy for best player in Ligue 1, Mbappé had pointed out to his glorious elder that he remained a meeting to do it from the opus 2021-2022. The meeting is made at 9 p.m. at the Parc.Deschamps: “Kylian Mbappé is French, that suits me” LOSC, the worst champion for 20 years? Since Monaco, 11th in the first division in 2001 with the title holder’s cap, the outgoing champion still finishes in the “Top 10” of Ligue 1 (ex-D1). Nantes fell from first to tenth place, between 2001 and 2002. Montpellier from first to ninth, between 2012 and 2013. This season, LOSC are on track to sign a performance of this type. dawn of the ultimate game, tied on points with… Nantes, precisely, 9th. The Mastiffs receive Rennes, the Canaries welcome Saint-Etienne. Note that in 2002, the championship had only eighteen teams. Finishing him 10th was synonymous with second part of the table. This is no longer the case. Not sure that consoles Lille. A season in hell: from Costil to Yilmaz, the eleven castaways from the L1 Who will be the boss of small budgets? Troyes and Clermont are neck and neck. In the financial register, on the one hand, since they have the two smallest budgets in Ligue 1: ESTAC is 19th, with 30 million euros, Clermont Foot 20th, with 20 million euros (source Sportune ). In the sporting field, especially, since Troyens and Clermontois are respectively 15th and 16th. Only one point separates the Aubois and the Auvergnats, assured of remaining in the elite before this 38th day. Troyes moves to Lorient (17th), Clermont receives Lyon (8th), i.e. two teams that don’t have much left to play either… although, the bonuses according to the classification are not negligible for everyone . So, who will be the strongest of the “little ones”? Answer on Saturday. We will also have an eye on…Angel Di Maria’s farewell to PSG, where he was a major player for seven seasons. Thomas Mangani, Ismaël Traoré and Romain Thomas, of which it should also be the last, with the SCO. Yannick Cahuzac (37, RC Lens), who has announced his retirement and could tread an L1 lawn one last time. The face of OL, for the epilogue of their up and down season. The stands during matches – away – which can send ASSE and the Girondins de Bordeaux to L2, hoping for measured reactions.
