Ligue 2: Ajaccio, Auxerre and Sochaux maintain pace, Dunkirk and Nancy continue to sink

Ajaccio keeps his place of dolphin, Auxerre and Sochaux in ambush

Behind Toulouse, leader and almost guaranteed back to the elite after his win in Guingamp on Saturday (4-2), the race to the climb promises to be breathless. Dauphin of the Violets, AC Ajaccio records a second win in a row (2-1) against Pau, thanks to a double by Jean-Philippe Krasso. Despite Stefan Bajic’s repeated stops, the hired Saint-Etienne striker managed to trick his former Greens partner twice (59th and 69th) to reward the wide-ranging Corsican domination.

After their draw with Bastia last week, Auxerre (3rd) regained the taste of victory by beating Valenciennes (1-0) thanks to Théo Pellenard’s first goal this season. The former Bordeaux defender came to catapult a powerful header on a corner from Gauthier Hein (8th). Sochaux (4th) continues its frenzied advance by beating the red lantern Nancy (1-0), red lantern almost doomed to relegation after this new defeat. After a great collective action, Rassoul came to trick Ndiaye Baptiste Valette (36th) into giving the win to the Cubs.

The results put pressure on Paris FC, which temporarily dropped to 5th place in Ligue 2, before hosting Dijon at the end of the 32nd day (8:45 PM) on Monday.

QRM gives itself some air, cruel outcome for Dunkirk

Goals from Nazon (22nd) and Gbelle (44th) allowed Quevilly-Rouen to easily get rid of Rodez in the fear game. Fabien Mercadal’s players finish a run of eight games without a win and rise to 16th place (34 points). Rodez, for his part, still does not win and becomes the first non-relegation (17th, 33 points).

Beaten at Le Havre (2-1), Dunkirk conceded a fourth loss in a row, perhaps the most painful, as the Northerners delivered a successful performance. 20 minutes from time, Majouga, coming into the game, thought he could give his team a deserved draw, given the number of chances created by capitalizing on Abdelli’s opening score (19th). It was without counting on the view of the midfielder who, with a beautiful curled attack, doubled himself and gave a definite advantage to Le Havre (89th). Dunkirk remains 19th and is now three points behind Grenoble (18th, 33 points), beaten on their lawn by Caen (0-1) on a Mendy goal at the end of the game.

In the other matches of the evening there was a goalless draw between Amiens SC – Bastia and Niort – Nîmes. Amiens and Niort are 10th and 11th, Nîmes and Bastia 13th and 14th.
