The Girondins almost in Ligue 2, the Bretons save their heads in L1

The Girondins now have one foot and four toes in Ligue 2 after their new home draw against Lorient (0-0). Last of the championship, they are three points behind the last day on the play-off with a very very unfavorable goal difference. For its part, Lorient saves its place in L1 with this result.

The Girondins almost in Ligue 2

It’s not yet official because of the goal difference (in particular thirteen goals behind the play-off, Metz) which maintain a tiny hope but without taking too many risks, the Girondins are in Ligue 2 after this new draw at home against Lorient. It had been 31 years since the club had experienced a descent to the lower echelon and still it was an administrative relegation at the time. The last sport dates back to 1960. It is a page in the history of the Girondins de Bordeaux that is turning. For the record, it would be necessary that the players of David Guion​ won by six goals in Brest and Metz lost by seven in Paris on the last day. All this in the hope that Saint-Etienne also bows widely to Nantes. In other words, an unlikely scenario.

An evening of incidents

As you might expect, this last match was punctuated by several overflows. It started as soon as the players’ bus arrived with a fringe of Ultramarines who tried to intercept it. It took the use of numerous tear gas from the CRS to disperse the Bordeaux supporters. Then the meeting was interrupted for the first time in the 25th minute of play with a throw of toilet paper accompanied by several banners: “You are the shame of our 140 years of history”, “Players, staff, management: all guilty! », « 89 goals conceded, you are to shit » or even « Gérard Lopez, from the promise of the top 10 to hell! “.

Lorient saves his skin

This match in Bordeaux will not go down in the history of the Bretons in terms of play but regardless, they have officially obtained their maintenance in Ligue 1 against the Girondins. With four points ahead of the red zone one day from the end of the season, they can no longer be joined by the play-off. The Lorientais did not show much apart from a strike from Ouattara but that was enough against pale Bordeaux. Once again, they saved their skin in the last days after a very complicated season with only eight wins, eleven draws and eighteen defeats.
