L1 – AS Monaco, OM, Rennes: all the scenarios for the Champions League before the 38th day

There are those who count back. And those who embark on apothecary calculations. This Saturday, nothing has been decided yet regarding the identity of the team that will accompany PSG in the group stage of the Champions League 2022-2023. A stunning winner against Brest (4-2), AS Monaco seems, however, just as well placed as it has its destiny in its hands.

With three points ahead of Rennes and a better goal difference than OM, ASM enjoys a more comfortable mattress than Jorge Sampaoli’s troupe. The Olympians can secure the podium with just one small point but the worst case scenario also exists, with Rennes passing in front on the gong. As a reminder, here are the criteria that apply in the event of a tie for points between several teams:
