This is a match between two teams that could fill a place in the relegation playoffs from Ligue 1. Strasbourg only needs a draw to avoid it, and a point can also secure a place in Ligue 1 for Lorient next season. Strasbourg at home is in a series of four defeats, but against Lorient, they could lead a tough fight. Lorient is playing desperately away without a win in their last 14 away matches. Brest, which is a direct competitor for survival, welcomes PSG, which is leading a deadly race for the title with Lille and will surely lose the match, so if this match ends in a draw, both teams will have 42 points, which is enough to secure first league status.
