After the end of the 2019-2020 season whistled by Prime Minister Edouard Philippe Tuesday before the national assembly, the office of the LFP board of directors is due to meet on Thursday to study the sports consequences of this government decision. In particular the ascents and descents in L1 and L2. This will perhaps bring back a bad memory to the Nancy supporters, finally those who experienced the descent of the ASNL from L1 to L2 for two goals in 2000.
Nineteenths in the ranking of L2 with 26 points, the Manceaux may in fact also experience relegation to the goal average, for four goals conceded than the 18th Niort. In the elevator towards the third level of French football, there will in any case be the Orléans red lantern. Both replaced by Pau and Dunkirk who dominated the National before the championships stop.
Promoted to L1 will be Lorient and Lens, to the dismay of AC Ajaccio, third one point behind the Sang et Or. ACA, no more than 4e Troyes and the 5e Clermont, will not be able to claim an accession via play-offs and play-offs. “I am for the application of the regulations” declared Tuesday evening the president of the FFF Noël Le Graët to our colleagues of the Telegram, “There should therefore be two climbs of National in D2, the D2 should have two descents and two climbs and therefore two descents of Ligue 1. Because I do not see how we could make barrages ».
2020-2021 Ligue 2 should therefore be made up of the following twenty clubs: AC Ajaccio, Amiens, Auxerre, Caen, Chambly, Châteauroux, Clermont, Dunkerque, Grenoble, Guingamp, Le Havre, Nancy, Niort, Paris FC, Pau, Rodez, Sochaux, Troyes, Toulouse, Valenciennes.
