We knew the English “boxing day”, an unmissable Premier League event that animates the stadiums between Christmas and New Year.
Here is the French “celebration week”, a great first in Ligue 1 in a season like no other which will allow the championship to be relaunched after the golds of the World Cup and the final scheduled for December 18 in Doha.
It is therefore ten days later, on Wednesday December 28, that French affairs will resume through the 16th day.
Regarding Racing, the return to school will be tough since it will be a question of going to challenge the Parisian leader and, we take bets, one or the other fresh world champion – Mbappé, Neymar, Messi? – at the Parc des Princes. Kick-off at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, with four other matches also scheduled for Thursday.
For the 17th day, Racing avoided the New Year’s Day match, an organizational puzzle to mobilize the police and stewards the day after New Year’s Eve. This key match in the maintenance race will be played on Monday January 2 at 3 p.m., knowing that the start of the school year will be the next day.
