In France, money can’t buy you love, but it can buy you four league titles on the spin.

PSG’s dominance, however, is being tested this season. Plucky underdogs Nice were able to extend their lead at the top of Ligue 1 this weekend. They are unbeaten after nine wins from 11 games, and sit six points clear of Monaco – who could only draw with St Etienne thanks to heroics from Stephane Ruffier – and PSG, who beat Lille. The south coast club are striking a blow against corporate meddling in our beautiful game, and that fight continues thanks to a victory over Nantes at the Allianz Riviera. Oh.

Elsewhere, Lyon finally managed a victory, beating Toulouse this weekend, but they sit 13 points off the top of the table, and they’ll probably be out of the Champions League in the not too distant future, too. See what happens when you don’t sell your club to billionaires?

Marseille, on the other hand, did recently sell their club to American billionaire Frank McCourt who swiftly installed Rudi Garcia as manager and Barcelona legend Andoni Zubizarreta as sporting director. They drew with 0-0 PSG last week, and backed it up with yet another 0-0 again this weekend. Passionate. See what happens when you sell your club to billionaires?
