Kick-off at 19.30 UK/ 20.30 CET

Paris did themselves a huge favor and defeated Grenoble, on the road, last weekend. The match was a tough one, and the win had to ground out. Wamangituka scored the only goal of the match, in the 33rd minute, to gift the three valuable points to Paris.
Grenoble tried out all their substitutions, to find an equalizer but failed to do so, to the dismay of the home fans.
Red Star recorded a rare win for a change, at home, against Sochaux, last weekend. The final score was 3-0, in favor of the hosts. The Reds took advantage of the two dismissals of Sochaux and scored three unanswered goals past the visiting defense.
Faucher scored the first goal in the 44th minute. Diallo added a second in the 67th and Tomas completed the proceedings in the 87th minute.
