The top five contenders for relegation from Ligue 1 are: Angers, Auxerre, Ajaccio, Brest and Montpellier. Having studied these teams, you can most likely predict which of them will remain in the elite, and who will have to go down in class.
Gerald Baticle’s wards looked disgusting in 2022 in the domestic championship. With eight points in 15 matches, Angers is in last place in the standings. At the same time, the lag of “RMS” from the saving 16th line was five points. It is worth noting that from the end of September to the middle of November, the “Skoists” suffered seven consecutive defeats from Marseille, Strasbourg, Toulouse, Rennes, Monaco, Lance and Lille. Having conceded 16 goals, Pierrick Capel and partners scored only six goals in response.
Even if Angers breaks the losing streak, the team needs to score an impressive amount of points and count on the misfires of competitors. Such a scenario is possible, but unlikely.
The boys of Christophe Pelissier are in 17th place after 15 rounds of Ligue 1. At the same time, Auxerre was inferior to the 16th Brest and the 15th Nantes only in additional indicators. Having won three and drawn four times, the “Burgundians” suffered eight defeats. Montpellier, Auxerre and Ajaccio managed to overcome the brainchild of James Zhou. All winnings were minimal. It should also be noted that in 2022, Biram Toure and partners had the worst attack in the league. On average, the team scored a little less than one goal per game.
Auxerre has a good chance of maintaining his place in the elite. However, for this you need to win more often. Otherwise, the “Burgundians” will return to Ligue 2 again.
Olivier Pantaloni’s team is having an extremely volatile season and is in danger of being relegated. In 15 rounds, Ajaccio managed to score 12 points. This was enough to be only in 18th place. At the same time, from the saving positions, the “red-white-black” were one point behind. So the prospect of maintaining a residence permit in the elite football championship of France for the “bears” good enough. In addition, representatives of the city of the same name left for the winter break, confidently defeating Strasbourg – 4:2 and tied with Nantes.
“Bears” unstable, but they can improve and try to compete for the 15th or 16th line.
The guys of Bruno Gruji went on a break related to the World Cup in Qatar after a home win over Troyes with a score of 2:1. This allowed Brest to be on the 16th line. At the same time, the “pirates” was tied with 15th Nantes and 17th Auxerre. This means that feeling safe “red-white” can not. Although the brainchild of Michel Guyot may well compete for a place in the elite of French football.
Last season, “Pirates” finished in 11th place in the standings. If Brest improves at least a little, then it will be able to break away from the relegation zone and repeat last year’s result.
The wards of Romain Pito after 15 rounds of Ligue 1 scored 14 points and were inferior to the 13th Troyes only in additional indicators. After three defeats in a row from Lance, Lyon and Rennes, in the November segment, Montpellier painted world matches with Clermont and Reims. The pause was supposed to benefit the “paladins”, since December they can start adding.
The brainchild of Laurent Nicollin has impressive experience and is able to maintain a place in the elite.
The most stable team with a good line-up in this five is Montpellier. With a high probability, it is the “paladins” will not be in the weakest four. But Angers, Auxerre, Ajaccio and Brest are unlikely to please their fans. Most likely, these teams will not be able to score points regularly and will have to go down in class at the end of the season.
