FC Nantes suffered the law of Montpellier this Saturday during the 36th day of Ligue 1 (0-3). More than ever, relegation to Ligue 2 threatens the Canaries.
And Nantes continues to sink… Inexorably. This Saturday at La Beaujoire, with a public still supplied and fervent to push behind its back, the FCN missed a new opportunity to leave the red zone, even temporarily. Without pity, Montpellier took their ease in the lair of the Canaries, winning 0-3 at the end of a generally controlled game, barely marked by the obvious goodwill of the locals in the first minutes of play.
Cooled down in their enthusiasm by Ferri’s fine goal against (0-1, 38e), Nantes surrendered in the second half. Nordin first hit the nail on the head with a curling strike marvel (0-2, 47e), then Sacko delivered the coup de grace in the last minutes, when Aristouy’s men had abdicated (0-3, 88e). « I don’t have the words, I’m telling you the truthsaid Castelletto hotly on Prime Video. We started with game intentions and all it took was one goal (collected, editor’s note) for everything to go wrong. We put ourselves in difficulty, that’s the whole problem of our season. »

While they have only two matches left to play this season – in Lille and against SCO – the Blas and others remain 17e and first relegation, at a length of an AJA which Sunday has an appointment with PSG. The Auxerrois will then have to do battle with Toulouse (outside) and Lens (at home). The misstep of the day of the FCN could also make two people happy this weekend. In case of victory over Troyes and Clermont respectively, Strasbourg and Brest will indeed ensure their maintenance in the elite.
