Ligue 1 round-up: What we learned from matchday 23

LiveSoccerTV takes a look at the most interesting happenings from last weekend's action in Ligue 1, including a shocking result for PSG...and more.

Due to the ongoing unrest in France, Ligue 1 has been repeatedly disrupted this season, with several teams, including reigning champions PSG having quite a few games in hand that need to be made up before the current campaign concludes.

Although it really has made no impact on the title race, it still just could give others some hope that Les Parisiens aren't so infallible after all.

Les Rouges-et-Blancs finally have gotten a win after a long wait. The struggling club opted to bring back Leonardo Jardim after relieving former striker Thierry Henry of his duties and picked up a hard-fought 2-1 win over Toulouse to move into 18th spot. Although they're not out of the drop zone, new signing Cesc Fabregas got himself on the score-sheet, along with fellow new acquisition Golovin, who made history in the process:

There's no place like home for Marseille...

Some teams really struggle on the road. Marseille clearly is one of them, unfortunately:
