Will FC Lorient still have hope of remaining in Ligue 1 next season and will Stade Brestois qualify directly for the Champions League? This is what is at stake on this last day of Ligue 1 (kick-off at 9 p.m.) for the two Breton clubs.

To win a play-off, the Morbihannais must win comfortably at home against Clermont and count on Paris SG to do the same in Metz.

Concerning Stade Brestois, and while the future of their sports director Grégory Lorenzi is uncertain, to finish in third place in the standings it will be necessary to obtain a better result in Toulouse than Lille, which hosts Nice, or, in the event of identical result, ahead of the Northerners on goal average.

For its part, Stade Rennais, which no longer has anything to gain or lose, will travel to Reims.
