Alfortville Relegated – EAG Smash Five Past Creteil

Alfortville were relegated to the CFA after a 2-0 defeat away at Niort this evening. The result leaves them 15 points from safety with just 12 left to play for.

Elsewhere, already promoted Bastia were held to a goal-less draw at home to Pacy. Second placed Amiens closed the gap between them and Bastia to just six points thanks to a 2-0 win over Bayonne, which should make the race to be crowned champions alot more interesting.

Third placed Guingamp pulled off the result of the night by smashing five past Creteil in a 5-1 victory at the Stade du Roudourou. Two goals from Giresse mean that he is now the leading goalscorer in the division with 19, overtaking Bastia (and ex-Guingamp) striker David Suarez who is on 18 for the season.

In the early kick-off Gap beat Plabennec 3-1 to pull themselves out of the drop zone and send their visitors into the relegation zone.

With only a couple of weeks of the season left it looks like Amiens and Guingamp will be joining Bastia in gaining promotion to Ligue 2 and at the bottom there are still 7 teams fighting to avoid the three remaining relegation spots. There should be some tense games in the next couple of weeks.

Results in full:

  • Gap 3 – 1 Plabennec
  • Cannes 2 – 0 Luzenac
  • Bastia 0 – 0 Pacy Vallée-d’Eure
  • Rouen 1 – 1 Rodez
  • Guingamp 5 – 1 Créteil
  • Bayonne 0 – 2 Amiens SC
  • Colmar 3 – 2 Fréjus St-Raphaël
  • Niort 2 – 0 Alfortville
  • Paris 2 – 2 Beauvais
  • Strasbourg 2 – 0 Orléans

Championnat National Preview 26th April

There is a full card of fixtures in the Championnat National this evening.

The only piece of up/down news that can occur tonight is that Alfortville can be relegated if they fail to win away at Niort, they could still be relegated however if Plabennec, Pacy and Bayonne all win their respective matches. With their fate out of their own hands it seems likely that they will be relegated this season.

At the top of the table Bastia are already promoted, Amiens and Guingamp occupy the two remaining promotion spots, Amiens travel to struggling Bayonne and Guingamp host mid-table Creteil. The only team that looks likely of catching them now is Strasbourg, they play host to mid-table Orleans who are stuttering of late with just one win in their last four games.

Elsewhere Paris FC are not sure of safety yet and they face a difficult evening playing host to 5th placed Beauvais.
