Ligue 1. ASSE, Metz, Bordeaux… All the scenarios that could seal the fate of the three clubs


Basketball players call it money-time. Saturday evening, the 37th and penultimate day of Ligue 1 is played everywhere in France. It could seal the fate of several teams, especially at the bottom of the standings. FC Metz and the Girondins de Bordeaux could officially be relegated to Ligue 2. In the event of a bad result, Saint-Etienne can tremble.

Bordeaux in Ligue 2 if…

Red lantern (20th, 27 pts), Bordeaux can be demoted to Ligue 2 in the event of defeat against Lorient. A victory may not be enough for the Girondins, if Saint-Etienne (18th, 31 pts) beats Reims at the same time. A draw and a defeat for the Greens would leave David Guion’s players alive, but with a largely unfavorable goal difference (-41).

Metz in Ligue 2 if…

FC Metz (19th, 28 pts) will be demoted to league 2 in the event of a defeat against Angers combined with at least a draw from Saint-Etienne. Unlike Bordeaux, the Garnets have a favorable goal difference against their opponents. A victory against the Angevins and a victory for Reims would propel Frédéric Antonetti’s men to the place of play-off. They will move to the Parc des Princes on the last day.

Saint-Etienne barrage if…

The Greens will inevitably have an eye on the side of the Saint-Symphorien stadium. If they do better than FC Metz and at least the same result as Bordeaux on Saturday evening, they will at least be roadblockers at the end of the season. But they still have a chance to maintain themselves on the evening of the 38th day. They could pick up in Lorient (17th, 34 pts) in the event of success against Reims and a victory for the Girondins. Everything would then be played on May 22. Pascal Dupraz’s players cannot be officially relegated to Ligue 2 on Saturday, regardless of their result.
