Difficult but not irreversible situation. The difference for the Amiens, seventeenth placed, is two points. The Caen, sixteenth, also has 18 points. Both made the 19 games predicted by the table of the first turn. Thus, the Dijon depends only on its result to leave the region of the sticking.Maybe that’s the biggest problem.

After losing out at the end of last year with a loss to Lille (1 to 0), with whom he fought for the vice-leader of the French Championship, and tie with Lyon (1 to 1), another direct rival in that battle, opened the new year with a vexing elimination in the French Cup. He fell before the tiny Sannois, an amateur team, losing 1-0 to Saturday, January 5.But it did not stop there. On Tuesday 8 January, one of the two games that had been postponed in the first round, was beaten by Nantes in the rival’s stadium by 2 to 0. Thus remained stationed in the 30 points (eight wins, six draws and four defeats), letting one more escape better chance of its position in the classification table. He started the twentieth-round match in fourth place.In short, Gaetan Laborde (17 games in the French Championship 2018/2019, seven goals) was also dismissed after just 19 minutes of the first half when the game was still tied for goals. In addition to jeopardizing the performance of the club in the match, the athlete, suspended, will not be able to act this Saturday.As a visitor, Montpellier have the third best performance of Ligue 1. Of the 24 potos who played outside their domains, they returned home with 14 (four wins, two draws and two losses) with 11 goals scored and eight conceded.
