The regulations will be changing in League 1 and in League 2 the next season, the particular difference in points will be taken into account.
The French championship is going to evolve next season and the rules for the tiebreaker as well in League 1 than in League 2 will not be only the goal difference overall. France is slightly closer to the system in Spanish and Italian.

In fact, in the case of a tie in terms of points and goal difference overall, the second criterion that will be taken into account will be the particular difference on direct confrontations. In other words, the ranking will take into account the results of the matches played between the two clubs in the first phase and in-phase return.
For example, if two clubs are tied in points and goal difference overall and a club X won against a club during the two confrontations, then club X will go to the club in the standings. If the two clubs have won a match each in the two direct confrontations, this will be the goal difference which will be taken into account.
