The L1 will wait for Toulouse! The indisputable leader of L2 was hooked to Sochaux (1-1) and could not compost his ticket for the elite, Tuesday during the 34th day. The Toulousains were not masters of their destiny for this first upswing: in order to find the L1, they had to win in Franche-Comté and count on missteps from Paris FC and Auxerre, which were not to be ‘impose. Quite the opposite happened: Téfécé was jostled on the lawn of attractive Sochaliens, while the PFC and AJA beat Caen (1-0) and Dijon (2-1) respectively. The Violets will have the opportunity to validate their rise in L1 in front of their Stadium supporters, Monday against Niort.
Four games from the end of the season, the TFC (73 pts) is still six points ahead of Ajaccio (67), winner of Dunkirk (2-1), nine on the third, Auxerre (64), and ten on the fourth, Paris (63). The FCSM remains fifth with 61 units on the clock but lost two precious points in the race for the podium. In a well-stocked Auguste-Bonal Stadium (15,188 spectators) and boiling, the Violets, who remained on five victories in a row, quickly conceded the opener by Rassoul N’Diaye (6th). But they gradually regained control of the game and ended up equalizing on the return from the locker room by Anthony Rouault after a confused action (51st). The Cubs then woke up and dominated the end of the match but lacked success, like this strike from Gaëtan Weissbeck on the post (63rd).
Paris FC resumes its march forward
Auxerre, third (64 pts), in any case confirmed its success against Dijon (2-1), and Ajaccio, second (67 pts), also won against Dunkirk with the same score. At the foot of the podium, Paris FC resumed its march forward by beating Caen at home (1-0). The Parisians can thank their goalkeeper Demarconnay, who stopped a Mendy penalty fifteen minutes from the end of the game. At the bottom of the standings, the red lantern Nancy delayed the relegation which seems to be looming by obtaining a point in Rodez (1-1), but remains, with 24 points, ten points behind his evening opponent (17th).
