What you may have missed between last night and this morning
1. Football – Ligue 1: Payet and OM postpone the PSG title (a bit)
The deal was simple, Paris had to do better than OM to become champions of France at the end of this 33rd day. The Marseillais therefore had to miss against Nantes, which could have been the case without Payet’s double on the penalty spot and a late goal by Harit (3-2). A success that puts Marseille, dolphin, six points ahead of Rennes, Strasbourg (which exactly defeated Rennes) and Monaco (Nice trapper). PSG dominated Angers (0-3), Bordeaux and Sainté drew (2-2) and Lorient gave himself some breathing room by dropping Metz (2-1). Lyon lost again, to Brest (2-1).

The V (now VI) Nations Tournament has only one hole in the list: it was found 50 years ago on the line of 1972, an edition overshadowed by the Derry massacre. This drama, better known as Bloody Sunday, had also been fatal to the ambitions of the XV of Ireland, author of that year’s excellent start.
What not to miss today

All has not been rosy for Barca this season, but with just one point behind Atlético de Madrid and two games less, second place reaches the Blaugrana. They face Real Sociedad on Thursday (9:30 p.m.) with a double ambition: to pass in front of the Colchoneros and not offer Real Madrid a match point for the title in their next game.
2. Cycling – Tour of the Alps: Arrival at altitude for Bardet and the others
