Placed under the protection of the commercial court, Bordeaux is not yet certain to go to the end of Ligue 1. In the worst-case scenario, all the results of the matches against the Girondins could be canceled and the classification of the championship would then be upset. .
The announcement of the withdrawal from King Street sparked the anger of many Bordeaux supporters on Thursday. Like some illustrious former club members such as Christophe Dugarry and Alain Giresse, the management of the Bordeaux club has created a catastrophic situation and jeopardizes the future of the team in Ligue 1.
Placed under the protection of the commercial court, the Girondins hope to find a buyer as soon as possible. In the absence of a new owner and in the most extreme case, Bordeaux could be demoted and the LFP would cancel the results of all L1 games involving the club in the scapular. The classification of the championship would then undergo many changes.
PSG leader, Lyon on the podium
The title race would necessarily be impacted by a withdrawal from the Girondins and cancellation of their results this season. With a victory and especially a draw (2-2) conceded last November at the Parc des Princes, PSG would lose four points and would then have a total of 65 points. Enough to go from Lille who signed two victories against Bordeaux (2-1 and 3-0). Christophe Galtier’s LOSC would have a shortfall of six units in the event of Bordeaux defection and would end up second with 64 points.
With a draw at Matmut Atlantique in mid-September (0-0) and a victory at Groupama Stadium (2-1) at the end of January, OL would drop four units in the event of cancellation of the results against Bordeaux. But the team coached by Rudi Garcia would gain a place in the championship standings and overtake Monaco. Blame it on the two victories (4-0, and 3-0) won by the Principality club which would be the big loser of the Gironde crisis at the top of the L1 standings. But with a three-point difference between the top four in the standings, the suspense would still be intense.
The new top 4: 1. Paris with 65 points. 2. Lille with 64 points. 3.Lyon with 63 points. 4. Monaco with 62 points.
Rennes relaunched for Europe, the fall of Montpellier
The fight for tickets in the Europa League and Conference League would also be greatly modified by a withdrawal of the Girondins. With only one match played against Bordeaux (like Lorient, Nantes, Lens and Reims), Stade Rennais would do rather well after their home defeat at the start of the season (0-1). Bruno Genesio’s Bretons would keep their current point total and would then gain two places in the standings to join the top 5.
Victorious of the team coached by Jean-Louis Gasset at Bollaert in September (2-1), Lens would lose three points and one place to find himself sixth. Jorge Sampaoli’s OM would follow with a total of 50 points and four points left behind. Provisionally eighth after 33 days, Montpellier would lose the bonus of its two victories against the Gironde team and slip from one place in the Ligue 1 classification.
Nîmes would be maintained, Nantes in dams
It is ultimately at the bottom of the standings that things would not evolve that much in the event of cancellation of the results of the matches against Bordeaux. If the Girondins would be last and logically demoted in Ligue 2 (or even worse), Dijon would accompany them to the lower echelon.
With two defeats this season, the Burgundians would not lose points but would stay too far to save themselves. Unlike Nîmes, who would take advantage of a Girondine defection to get out of the red zone despite the loss of three points linked to his victory on the 26th day (2-0). Finally, provisionally 19th in L1, Nantes would in fact gain a place and play its place in the elite against a club from L2.
