Jean-François Pérès, edited by Laura Laplaud

The 2021-2022 Ligue 1 season ends on Saturday evening with a final multiplex of ten games during the 38th day to live in Europe 1 Sport between 8 p.m. and midnight. The suspense is present at all levels. If Paris Saint-Germain is officially champion of France since April 23, six teams are still waiting to know their fate.

It’s the end of a chapter: the 2021-2022 Ligue 1 season will end this Saturday evening in a final multiplex of ten games during the 38th and last day of the football championship. The suspense is present at all levels, obviously at the bottom of the table where the evening promises to be unbreathable. Six teams are still waiting to know their fate.

A reprieve for Saint-Etienne?

Bordeaux is no longer master of its destiny and promised to Ligue 2. But who will accompany the Girondins at the lower level? Perhaps another monument of French football: AS Saint-Etienne, which is tied with Metz. The Greens, traveling to Nantes, must obtain a better result than the Messins who go to Paris, for what will perhaps be Kylian Mbappé’s last match at Paris Saint-Germain.

At best, Saint-Etienne will get a reprieve, a play-off place against Auxerre.

For the rest, the fight will be European. It will be a Champions League operation for Monaco and Marseille. The Monegasques travel to Lens while OM welcome Strasbourg. These two clubs are also targeting European folding seats, but they are not the only ones. Rennes will play in Lille and Nice in Reims.

Relegations, Europa League or Champions League, the suspense will undoubtedly last until the last minute, except for PSG who will celebrate with great fanfare at the Parc des Princes their 10th title of champion of France.
