It's official! Arantia, Kordallsteelers, Telstar and BC Mess now make the playoffs to see who goes up to the Total League for next season!
It came to a special criteria between the clubs of BC Mess and AS Zolwer, the 4th and 5th place teams tied with a 10-8 record each. They each won their games against each other at home by ten points. The third criteria to determine who would make the playoffs was then used. Looking at the points scored for and points scored against differential, BC Mess won that criteria by a total of 35 points. Therefore, BC Mess makes it and AS Zolwer will be in the playdowns.
The bottom four teams from the Total League were: Contern, Racing, Residence and Heffingen. So now, those eight teams will play each other twice (home and away). All teams keep the points they earned during the qualification round. At the end of these 14 games, the top two teams from the Poule Maintien and the top two teams from the Poule Montee will play next season in the Total League and the other for teams will play next season in National 2.

Total League Hommes Poule Maintien

1.AB Contern 6-12 24 points
2.Racing Luxembourg 6-12 24 points
3.Residence Walferdange 5-13 23 points
4.US Heffingen 3-15 21 points

Poule Montee N2-Total League

2.Kordallsteelers Differdange 15-3 33 points
3.Telstar Hesperange 11-7 29 points
4.BC Mess 10-8 28 points

Arantia Larochette, who went undefeated in the qualification round has a 7 point lead over 3rd place Telstar. They are a clear favorite to go up as it will be difficult for Telstar or BC Mess to catch them. Kordallsteelers, who have never played in the Total League are 5 points ahead of 4th place BC Mess and 3 points ahead of Telstar. It looks to be a tight race to see which of the other three teams will make it and which will remain in N2. In the Total League Poule Maintien, Contern and Racing have a 1 and 2 point lead over Residence and Heffingen. The first games will be played on the first weekend in February.
