Ligue 1, NBA, Masters 1000 Rome, Premier League, Italian Cup, Handball... The set for Thursday May 12

What you may have missed between last night and this morning

1. Football – Ligue 1: Rennes succumbs to the euphoria of Nantes

Rennes probably lost more than a derby at Beaujoire. While they had opened the scoring thanks to Flavien Tait, the Bretons were finally defeated, Wednesday evening (2-1), by a Nantes team still on its cloud after its coronation in the Coupe de France. A defeat that could cost the SRFC (5th) dearly in the race for the podium. Nice (4th) can still hope to get there. The Aiglons took the best of Saint-Étienne (4-2) in a match unfortunately marked by a shocking chant on the death of Emiliano Sala.

2. Basketball – NBA: A hair-raising finish and the Bucks overthrow the Celtics

There were less than two minutes left to play, but Boston scuttled themselves. In the last 100 seconds of Game 5 against Milwaukee, the Celtics – who were then leading by 6 points – conceded a scathing 11-2 against Giannis Antetokounmpo’s band (40 points in total) and finally fell on their floor ( 107-110). The Bucks take the lead in this series (3-2) and can conclude at home on Friday. As well as Golden State, which remains in the lead despite a large setback against Memphis (134-95).

3. Football – Premier League: Irresistible, De Bruyne explodes Wolverhampton

He is a magnificent player who, for one evening, also turned into a prolific scorer. Kevin De Bruyne signed a quadruple and was therefore the great architect of Manchester City’s clear success at Wolverhampton (1-5) on Wednesday evening. The Skyblues remain three points clear of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League. Winner in Leeds a little earlier (0-3), Chelsea remains clinging to its 3rd place.

1. Cycling – Tour of Italy: Starting to double the bet?

At the end of a perfectly led sprint from start to finish, Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) won the 5th stage of the Giro 2022, Wednesday in Messina. The Picard rider should have another opportunity to shine this Thursday, since the route of the day between Palmi and Scalea (192 kilometers) is relatively flat. Beware, however, of Mark Cavendish (Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl) and Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal), inevitably revengeful after being left far from the finish the day before.

2. Tennis – Masters 1000 Rome: Djokovic-Wawrinka reunion, Nadal in Shapovalov’s test

They had not faced each other since the US Open 2019. Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka have an appointment this Thursday on Italian clay. A poster that we hope is more disputed than the difference in the ATP ranking suggests (1st against 361st). At the end of the day, Rafael Nadal will be opposed to the unpredictable Denis Shapovalov, for an enticing left-handed duel on paper.

3. Football – Premier League: Electric derby for a place in the Champions League

Of the many London derbies, the one between Arsenal and Tottenham is usually far from being the most trivial. The two neighbors to the north of the capital have a reciprocal hatred which will undoubtedly be increased tenfold this Thursday evening (8:45 p.m.), since it is a ticket for the next Champions League that is at stake. For the moment, advantage to the Gunners ( 4th), who are four points ahead of the Spurs (5th).
