#Ligue #Monaco #topple #Brest #place #Bordeaux #doomed #relegation
Like every season, the ten matches of the 37th and penultimate matchday of Ligue 1 were played simultaneously this Saturday night. The bets everywhere in the classification, between the race for European places and the fight to stay in the elite. We begin this tour of the stadiums with the teams still in the fight for qualification in the Champions League. We start with AS Monaco, fourth before hosting Brest at the Louis-II. The team led by Philippe Clement had to keep up with the Gym, but started poorly with two Breton goals from Duverne, followed by a party from Belaïli. Before the break, after a handball from the Algerian, who calmly vomited near the stadium, Ben Yedder lowered the penalty spot by taking Bizot off with his left foot, before equalizing in the half-time stride with a precise point. The French international even scored a hat-trick before the hour mark with a header. Volland continued the Monegasque festival after the postponed recovery of WBY. Thanks to this 4-2 win, Monaco moved into second place ahead of OM, who fell to Rennes.
While OM traveled to Rennes, his pursuer Nice welcomed LOSC at the Allianz Riviera. The OGCN was forced to take all three points against the 2021 French champions, and this operation started well thanks to Kluivert who opened the scoring, served by Boudaoui in the area. However, despite the Côte d’Azur’s great chances, Lille turned the game around in the first quarter of an hour of the second half thanks to David’s brace. A launch for the Canadian, who had not found a net since the beginning of March. The Aiglons were not far from resetting the counters thanks to a penalty caused by Bamba, annulled by the VAR (80th) and Delort (82nd) but finally it was Lille who sealed the fate of the match through ‘Isaac Lihadji, who Saco took advantage of the high projection of the locals to score the third Norteño goal on the counterattack. Nice misses out on the chance to climb into the top 5 and can no longer qualify for C1, Lille remains top of the table and remains on a positive note outside.
Bordeaux almost doomed, Metz revived
At the bottom of the table, Girondins de Bordeaux, last in the championship and almost doomed to Ligue 2 before this matchday, received FC Lorient, who had to score points to ensure their retention in L1. David Guion’s men were trying to show good things offensively, like a comeback look. First with the suspicion of a penalty on Fransergio (52nd), then the golden opportunity wasted by Hwang (68th), but the stick of the scapular was not very dangerous in the area of Breton truth. Merlus’ men were also not far from scoring the 90th goal conceded by Bordeaux through Moffi, too inaccurate (46th) or defeated by Poussin (59th). The South Korean missed another face-to-face late in the match, seeing his shot graze the left post of Dreyer (76th), who kept an eye on Mensah’s cross (78th). The Ghanaian was even excluded at the end of the match. A goalless draw, which offers maintenance to Lorient, but condemns Bordeaux more than ever, three points behind the barrage with an unfavorable goal difference, which has not yet descended mathematically.
Just ahead, FC Metz hosted SCO Angers, already remaining in the top flight, to put pressure on AS Saint-Etienne, who played Reims in a Geoffroy-Guichard game behind closed doors. On the Saint-Symphorien side, we had to wait for the second act to see Lamkel Zé unlock the mark with a helmet hit for the Garnets. De Préville thought he had made the break before the last quarter of an hour, but his offside position at the start of the action invalidated this second goal. As for the Greens, Pascal Dupraz’s men were surprised by Munetsi’s goal in minute 2, before Mangala equalized from a poorly repelled corner. Gradually back in Oscar Garcia’s lineup, Ekitike became a decisive passer for Doumbia in the hour of play (61). But despite the late awakening and a free kick grazing Khazri’s skylight at the end of the match, ASSE abandoning their place in the play-offs after their defeat (1-2) in Metz, the two teams will not be able to climb any further. from position 18.
