Fighting to avoid relegation, Caen will host Bordeaux on Friday, May 24, in a clash that is part of the schedule of the thirty-eighth – last – round of the French Championship 2018/2019 edition. The match will be held at the Michel d’Ornano stadium in Caen, starting at 4:05 pm (Brasília time), as will the other nine duels of the Ligue 1 final day.The Ligue 1 leads champion and vice directly to the group stage of the next edition of the Champions League. The third-placed can also get there, but for that he has to pass before the qualifiers. Who finishes in the fourth position goes to Europa League. The relegation zone is formed by the three worst among the 20 participants, but there is a difference between the quality of the vacancies in this block. The last two go straight to Second Division. The antepenultimate still has a chance to escape the decline by competing in the repechage with third place in Ligue 2.
The Caen are in a situation where they can completely get rid of relegation, have to play the repechage or even be relegated directly to the Second Division of the French Championship. With 33 points (seven wins, 12 draws and 18 losses), he occupies the 18th position, the first in the sticking region.To reach the best of the scenarios, you need to beat Bordeaux and hope that Amiens, who has 35 points and is the first team out of the relegation zone, will be beaten at home by Guingamp, the 20th – last – placed on the table classification of the French Championship and already relegated to Second Division. In that case, a draw from Amiens can also serve, but in this case Caen must win by two goals difference, so that, equaling the rival in the score, he exceeds in the goal balance, the first tiebreaker.The worst scenario involves Dijon, ninth place with 31 points, who will receive Toulouse. If the rival wins and the Caen lose, the latter would be relegated to Ligue 2. The hypothesis of the Caen draw combined with the victory of Dijon would cause equality in the score. However, the antepenultimate placed has six goals of advantage over the penultimate in the goal balance, which makes that hypothesis practically ruled out.Not so good, but not so bad is the permanence in eighteenth, which would prolong the season by forcing the playoff race with the third-placed Second Division. For this, the tie must suffice or even the defeat, provided that Dijon does not win his match.Caen’s performance figures as principal do not inspire confidence in his supporters. The team is the second-worst Ligue 1 owner. Of the 54 points he played in his internship, he had 17 (four wins, five draws and nine defeats) scoring 16 goals and 26.
Bordeaux are experiencing their worst moment of the season. On Saturday, May 18, at home, led 1 to 0 of Reims reaching the mark of six consecutive defeats. The last time he did not leave the field defeated was on April 5, when he scored, also in his domains, 2 to 0 at Olympique de Marseille.With 38 points (nine wins, 11 draws and 17 losses), he is a modest fourteenth on the leaderboard. Performance as visitor is even lower. When taken into consideration only the results of the 20 participants of the elite division of French football outside their domains, Bordeaux is the second worst in the ranking. Of the 54 points he played as column two, he collected only 11 (two wins, five draws and 11 losses) having scored nine goals and suffered 21.Injuries should leave out of the match this Friday defender Igor Lewczuk (five matches in the 2018/2019 version of the French Championship, no goal); of midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni (ten games, no goal); and attackers Andreas Cornelius (20 games, three goals) and Josh Maja (seven games, one goal).
