FC Nantes’ Survival Bid

After seemingly being destined to drop into Ligue 2, Les Canaris produced a stunning turnaround by winning three consecutive matches before taking on basement club Dijon in the penultimate round of games.

What could possibly go wrong? Nothing… they won 4-0!

Well, not quite nothing. The other teams flirting with relegation all managed to pick up points too. That means that the men in yellow will need to get something from their final game against Montpellier at the Stade de la Beaujoire. A draw could be enough to preserve Les Canaris Ligue 1 status as they have a far better goal difference than two of the three teams that are all just one point ahead of them.

Eighth place Montpellier will be no pushover though!
