Beaten Friday evening in Annecy (1-0), Bordeaux lost its second qualifying place for the rise in Ligue 1. The Girondins were overtaken by Metz, one day from the end of the season.
The scenario could not be worse for Bordeaux. Dolphins of Le Havre at the kickoff of the meeting which opposed them Friday in Annecy (1-0, 37th day of Ligue 2), the men of David Guion were beaten by their hosts. And height of bad luck for them, FC Metz went to beat Sochaux at Bonal (0-1). As a result, it was the Garnets who took second place, synonymous with accession to Ligue 1. One day before the end of the championship, the tension is at its maximum.
At the same time, Le Havre saved the draw point in extremis at Bastia (1-1) and could climb into the top flight next Friday, even in the event of a defeat. However, depending on what Metz and Bordeaux, these two respective pursuers, will do. Friday evening, Caen and Saint-Étienne left good friends (2-2), as did Dijon and Paris FC (1-1). Already relegated to National, Niort and Nîmes respectively fell to Guingamp (2-0) and Laval (2-0). Amiens won at Quevilly-Rouen (1-3) and Pau won at Rodez (2-3). Finally, Valenciennes validated a success at home against Grenoble (1-0).
Fight at all levels
The last day scheduled in a week will therefore be crucial at all levels. A trio made up of Le Havre, Metz and Bordeaux will compete for the two places for the rise in Ligue 1. And at the bottom of the classification, Dijon, Laval, Rodez, Pau, Annecy and Valenciennes will all be in the fight not to join Nîmes and Niort in their fall to the National.
