Bordeaux take on the visitors Lorient in the round 37 match of French Ligue 1. The match will be played on Saturday, May 14th at Matmut Atlantique (Bordeaux).
One of the last chances for the hosts to compete for play-offs with a representative of the Ligue 2. Although a round earlier, the hosts could still catch up with Lorient, who occupies exactly the 17th position. In general, everything is bad in the Bordeaux camp, even the players themselves do not really believe in a sensational result and simply finish the season. Motivation may still be there, but class and stability are not high enough. The hosts continue to concede four-five-six goals in matches on the road, the situation is a little better at home, but Guyon's wards are by no means the favorites, having took only one victory in fourteen rounds. 1-4 from Angers in the last round clearly and once again showed the inability of Bordeaux to fight for avoiding the relegation.

Lorient will not be relegated directly, a victory or at least a draw will most likely turn the last round with Troyes into an empty formality. Lorient lost in four out of five recent matches, but almost all the teams leading the fight for European competitions were in rivals. The visitors won only two time in away matches, they concede quite a lot, but Pelissier sometimes at least gets to show solid football. Lorient defeated both Saint Etienne and Metz, rivals in the survival zone, and did it confidently. There is a great opportunity to beat Bordeaux and calmly prepare for the next season.
Bookmakers give Guyon's team a little advantage, but it's totally incomprehensible why. At least we can count on the defense of the visitors. Bordeaux runs the risk of getting a hundred conceded goals at the finish line. The last chance with their fans to win, but I don’t believe in it at all. Most likely the visiotrs will try to play on the counterattack. It is unlikely that the Girondins’ fans should count victory, most likely once again the team will disappoint them and get the relegation from the Ligue 1 after the last duel with Brest.
Prediction for the match: Lorient to win with 0.0 handicap.
