Who will be relegated next season? The 33rd day of Ligue 1, Wednesday April 20, could modify the hierarchy at the bottom of the classification. Bordeaux, entangled in an uncomfortable penultimate place, is looking for air against Saint-Etienne (17th). If ASSE has raised the bar, only 4 points separate them from Bordeaux. Metz, the red lantern, goes for its part to Lorient (16th) with the hope of not sinking further. Clermont (18th) moves to Troyes (15th) in the last “game of fear”.
Higher in the standings, Lille, defeated in the North derby, want to erase their defeat against Lensois and relaunch in Reims. The 2021 French champions occupy a disappointing 9th place.
Another atmosphere for a derby. OGC Nice, fourth, meets AS Monaco in what promises to be the key match of this early evening. Christophe Galtier’s men remain in the race to clinch a qualifying spot for the Champions League. But the Aiglons have only recorded one victory in their last five games, against the Monegasque club, who have come within a point of their rival, who seeks the pass of five consecutive victories.
