Gradel at the Double to Cap Off Superb Season #FFWTOTW

That’s it. All done. All sorted. 38 rounds finish with the traditionally chaotic multiplex; ten simultaneous games, 32 goals, one new stadium being opened, one match stoppage, multiple fireworks and a trophy presentation. It’s a lot to keep up with, and that’s before our correspondent on Twitter realised that the multiplex they were watching didn’t include two of the games. Lens got the ball rolling with the first goal of the evening as Pablo Chavarria…

Situation Report: Ligue 1, Ligue 2, Championnat National

So – many things sewn up, but many things to play for.
