Remi Oudin scored the winning goal at the end of the first half to restore the league he had given Bordeaux in the 13th-minute. Bordeaux wil 2-1 at home to Lorient.

The best Marseille could do at Dijon was a point from a goalless draw.

Strasbourg used a 1-0 away victory against Lens to cut the point gap between the two teams down to 7 points.

Jon Boye’s goal saved Metz a point against Nice. Metz maintained the 2-point gap between the two teams in the standings.

Monaco have bounced back from 3 straight defeats with a 4-game unbeaten run; that is made up of three wins a draw.
Kevin Volland scored the insurance goal and assisted the opening and closing goal of the match for Monaco to get the three points from a comfortable 3-0 win against Angers.

Montpellier and Nantes split the points after a 1-1 draw in an evenly contested fixture.

Lille bounced back from their defeat in the last round with a narrow 1-0 win at Nimes.

A comfortable 3-0 win at home over Brest was how Paris St. Germain won their first game under Mauricio Pochentino.

Boulaya Dia contributed a first half brace in Reims win against Saint-Etienne.

Two late goals allowed Lyon to escape Rennes with a point. Not what Lyon needed to keep the point gap they had at the top of the league standings, but coming from behind to avoid defeat is always better than not.
