The evening’s good operation is Sochaux’s credit. Bordeaux’s defeat on Monday night against Le Havre (1-0) gave Les Doubiens or Grenoble the opportunity to grab second place in Ligue 2 from the Girondins. Thanks to their victory against Rodez (1-0), Sochaliens are the new dolphins in Ligue 2. In the 73rd minute, Aldo Kalulu opened his foot and allowed his team to take advantage of an advantage that they never relinquished. Grenoble lost against Quevilly-Rouen (2-0) and is in fourth place in the standings, four points behind second place and two points behind Bordeaux.
The map: Dijon curry Laval and leave the red zone

Bryan Soumaré scored twice (30th, 88th), to which must be added two other performances by Mickaël Le Bihan (37th) and Xande Silva (63rd).
