Respectively 19th and 20th in Ligue 1, Saint-Etienne and Bordeaux again lost big in the race to maintain last weekend.
Beaten by Lens at the end of a match encouraged, Saint-Etienne does not manage to materialize its progress by victories. For its part, Bordeaux completely sank on the lawn of Rennes with a bloody 6-0 defeat. Negative results for two monuments more in danger than ever with relegation places 17 days from the end of the championship. Can ASSE and Bordeaux still reverse the trend, or is it already too late? Asked in his digital tablet “Face à Pierrot”, the journalist Pierre Ménès fears that the relegations of Saint-Etienne and the Girondins have already been recorded in view of the catastrophic dynamics of the two clubs.
90th + 6: Too cruel for our Greens, defeated in the last seconds.

“If I see Bordeaux and ASSE go down to Ligue 2? I want to say that one of the two yes. Both probably. Now, there is still especially on this weekend, a big difference in behavior between the Greens and Bordeaux. The Greens, they lost at the last minute on a goal from elsewhere by Seko Fofana. They had really given everything with great courage. Well, there was not a crazy talent and an exceptional offensive power but we must still remember that Bouanga and Khazri are at the CAN and that Hamouma is injured as usual. They do what they can. They still rocked Lens. While Bordeaux, apart from the salad, they didn’t shake anything up in Rennes. I saw a team of senders from Bordeaux. Indeed, they have absentees but we ask them at least to give everything and not play on this rhythm of starlets. Yes, I am worried for both teams. It is true that for French football, it is important that Bordeaux and Saint-Etienne are in Ligue 1. analyzed Pierre Ménès, who fears for the history of the French championship that these two historic clubs descend to the lower level.
