UEFA Index: Big news for France!


By: Manu Tournoux

Barring an improbable scenario, the victory won by PSG in San Sebastian seals France’s fifth place in the UEFA index.

PSG responded. After the Black Thursday experienced by French football a fortnight ago, with the eliminations of Toulouse, Stade Rennais and RC Lens in the round of 16 of the Europa League, the capital club held its place by winning on the pitch of Real Sociedad (1-2) on Tuesday, thus validating his ticket for the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

And if this success had the merit of warding off the crisis that was brewing among the Rouge et Bleu due to tensions between Kylian Mbappé and Luis Enrique, it also allowed France to further consolidate its fifth place on the index. UEFA. Thanks to the victory of the capital club, France has 64,331 points and therefore now has a 3,231 point lead over the Netherlands, sixth with 61,100 points.

PSV no longer has a choice

France’s lead is such that PSV Eindhoven is now obliged to qualify next week against Borussia Dortmund to keep the Dutch hopes alive. In the event of elimination, a coronation for Ajax Amsterdam in the Europa Conference League with a full card would not be enough for the Netherlands to overtake France.

And French football can be all the more calm as France still has two cards to show since, on Thursday, Marseille must face Villarreal in the round of 16 of the Europa League and Lille play Sturm Graz in the Europa Conference League.
