Bordeaux’s Promotion Hopes Dashed After Fan Attack
Bordeaux’s Ligue 2 promotion hopes suffered a brutal blow as their final match against Rodez was abandoned after an attack on a player by a fan. Midfielder Lucas Buades was pushed over by the pitch-invader during his celebration of giving Rodez the lead in the 22nd minute, leading to him being taken off on a stretcher with concussion. Referee Nicolas Rainville subsequently halted the game. This outcome leaves Bordeaux’s chances of winning promotion in jeopardy, as they needed to outdo Metz’s results. However, Metz emerged victorious beating Bastia 3-2 and claiming second place behind champions Le Havre. The disciplinary committee of French football’s governing body will meet next Monday to discuss what action should be taken following this violent incident.
Rodez Struggle for Survival
Rodez faced intense pressure from Annecy who lost 1-0 at FC Paris and were hoping for a victory in order to stay up. Despite Buades’ injury cutting short their showdown against Bordeaux, Rodez had been making headway towards securing their survival when the game ended abruptly. However, controversy surrounds whether or not this match should resume or get replayed. While Bordeaux President Gerard Lopez insists that they have every right to appeal and assert themselves before authorities if need be; Pierre-Olivier Murat (Rodez Chairman) is skeptical about playing matches beyond league seasons’ last day.
