This time, Bordeaux has undoubtedly said goodbye to Ligue 1. It is enough for Saint-Etienne to win one of its last three matches to condemn the Girondins. This afternoon, in Angers, they have still conceded four goals, or 89 (!), since the start of the season. No one has done worse since 1978. In Angers, Benoît Costil sealed his team by offering Cho the opener in the 4th minute. Mendy increased the addition (36th). And if Mara (60th) gave hope to the Bordeaux people, the culpable release of his people allowed Bahoken to give the Angevins a two-goal lead in stride (62nd). Pereira Lage’s goal (90th+1) added to the disaster. Bordeaux is the red lantern and is only aiming for 18th place in the barrage (four points). The SCO, mathematically ensured its maintenance this Sunday.
What we remember: The L1 will lose a huge name.
At OL, we take stock: “The leaders know what’s going on in the team”

Who other than him? While Lens quietly said goodbye to his European dreams on the lawn of Reims, Seko Fofana appeared in additional time (90th + 2) to offer a capital success to the Northerners (1-2). Here they are, coming back to within two points of the European places with two days to go. In other words, everything remains to be done. The reaction was beautiful to see as Reims opened the scoring through Zeneli (28th). Sotoca (55th) gave hope to his people before Captain Fofana’s flash. Reims, which has nothing more to gain or lose, remains 12th.
What we remember: The breath of life of Lens.

Clermont is almost saved. Winner with the courage of a demobilized Montpellier, the promoted took a huge step towards staying in Ligue 1. It is not yet mathematically done, but the men of Pascal Gastien, 36 points on the clock, have made 3/4 work. Rashani (4th) and Bayo (69th), from the penalty spot, gave the victory to the locals. The Clermontois will be able to thank Mamadou Sakho, author of a huge foul in the box after the hour mark. In the 32nd minute, Joris Chotard had scored one of the best goals of this 35th day by sending a mine from the right in Ouparine Djoco’s cage for the 1-1. This magnificent goal did not revive the players of the MHSC, already on vacation.
What we remember: Rashani and Bayo have saved Clermont this season.
