@FCKobenhavn were handed the title by #fcn‘s loss to rivals @BrondbyIF. Nordsjaelland had more shots, more corners, and OVER 300 MORE completed passes (397-700).

Sete fall short despite win

Sete missed out on a play-off spot despite beating Toulouse 3-1. Batiste Geiler scored 19 points and made five aces for Sete.


Cannes finish second

The only other things to be decided were final positions. Lincoln Williams scored 17 points as Cannes beat Paris 3-1 to secure second spot, ahead of Narbonne who beat Tourcoing 3-0.

 


Other matches

Two matches were postponed due to Covid and they will be played on Tuesday. Those are Cambrai against league winners Montpellier and Chaumont against Nantes. Chaumont can leapfrog Tours and finish fourth if they win.
