Like Thursday's great day on the European stage (three victories for OM, Rennes and Lille and one defeat, that of Toulouse at Liverpool), French clubs have generally had a successful start to the season in the various European Cups. A dynamic which contrasts with that of the Dutch clubs who experienced a more complicated week. If PSV Eindhoven obtained a draw against Lens (1-1) in the Champions League on Tuesday and if Feyenoord won at Lazio Rome in C1, Ajax and AZ Alkmaar lost.
As a result of these results, France continues to close its gap on the Netherlands in the European index and is now close behind its neighbor, still fifth. The gap which was 2.769 points at the start of the European season is now only 0.769.
One more effort and France could overtake its Dutch rival. A place which is very important because it would allow the representatives of French football to obtain four places in the Champions League (three directly and one in the preliminary round). In total, seven French clubs would participate in European games over the next two seasons.
