Before the Round – France Ligue 1 (14/05/2022)

By the time Bordeaux kick off on Saturday, their fate may already be sealed. Girondins are chasing the relegation playoff place occupied by Saint-Etienne. Les Verts play in midweek and a win would see Bordeaux relegated. There is a lot to play for at the bottom of Ligue 1 heading into the weekend.

 

Girondins Bordeaux – FC Lorient

Bordeaux are on a three-match losing streak ahead of Lorient’s visit. Like Bordeaux, Lorient are battling relegation. Lorient are 17th in the table and three points ahead of 18th-place Saint-Etienne. By the time this game kicks off, Bordeaux could be relegated and Lorient in 18th place.

Lorient posted a mere one win against Bordeaux in the teams’ last six meetings in all competitions. Earlier this season, Lorient grabbed a 1-1 home draw. Lorient are on a three-match losing streak. Just six points were taken from the last six matches.

Bordeaux picked up four points from the last 18 points on offer in the league. They are struggling and have lost three straight matches. Girondins conceded 19 goals in their last six games. Bordeaux have conceded a league high 89 goals in 2021-22.

  • Girondins Bordeaux have suffered 3 straight defeats in their most recent clashes in Ligue 1.
  • FC Lorient have won only 2 of their last 33 away Ligue 1 matches.
  • In their last 24 games in Ligue 1, Girondins Bordeaux have recorded only 3 wins.
  • FC Lorient have suffered 3 straight defeats in their most recent away clashes in Ligue 1.
  • Prediction: Girondins Bordeaux @ 2.40

 

FC Metz – Angers SCO

Angers ended a long winless streak last weekend against Bordeaux. The Black and White could be mathematically safe from relegation by the time they kick off with Metz. Metz are 19th going into the weekend. Six points separate Metz from safety.

Metz are unbeaten in back-to-back matches in Ligue 1. They are coming off of a 3-2 win at home to Lyon. Just five points were picked up from Metz’s last six games.

Angers took six points from their last 18 points on offer. The Black and White have a brilliant 5W-1D-0L record against Metz across their last six head-to-head meetings. In the reverse fixture, Angers won 3-2 at home versus Metz.

  • In their last 47 games in Ligue 1, FC Metz have a poor record of just 6 wins.
  • Angers SCO have achieved just 2 wins of their last 22 away Ligue 1 games.
  • FC Metz have won just 1 of their last 15 matches in Ligue 1.
  • Angers SCO have won just 1 of their last 17 away matches in Ligue 1.
  • Prediction: Draw @ 3.80

 

Strasbourg - Clermont Foot

Strasbourg are chasing Champions League qualification for next season. Racing are fifth in the table and five points off of third-place Monaco. Clermont are almost safe, but depending on Saint-Etienne's result against Nice in midweek, could be pulled closer to the relegation playoff place.

Strasbourg won the reverse fixture 2-0 at Clermont earlier this season. Confidence should be high that they can do the double. Strasbourg are unbeaten in their last two matches and each of Strasbourg’s last six home games ended without a loss.

Clermont are coming off of a 2-1 win over Montpellier. They took eight points from the last 18 points available to them. Clermont have allowed the third most goals in Ligue 1 with 66.

  • Strasbourg haven't lost at half time in any of their last 14 matches in Ligue 1.
  • Clermont Foot's form hasn't been good, as the team has won only 2 of their last 11 matches (Ligue 1).
  • Strasbourg are undefeated in 22 of their last 25 Ligue 1 games.
  • Clermont Foot are conceding an average of 1.83 goals in Ligue 1 games.
  • Prediction: Strasbourg @ 1.45

 

Troyes AC - RC Lens

Lens are battling for a European place for next season. The Red and Yellow have been a great team to follow this season. They are two points off of fifth-place Strasbourg ahead of the weekend. Troyes are safe from automatic relegation. A win or draw could put them out of reach of the relegation playoff.

Lens have a record of 4W-0D-2L against Troyes in all competitions across the teams’ last six meetings. The Yellow and Red won the reverse fixture 4-0 in November. Lens took 14 points from the last 18 on offer in Ligue 1.

Troyes are unbeaten in their last two Ligue 1 games. They took just five points from the last 18 points on offer. Troyes scored seven goals and conceded seven in their last six matches.

  • RC Lens have not suffered any defeats in their 6 most recent Ligue 1 matches.
  • Troyes AC have won just 1 of their last 6 matches in Ligue 1.
