Monaco created the most chances in the first half, but failed again in the zone of truth.
Minutes after the break took Williams a yellow for a late tackle. In the 68th minute, he was exchanged for William Vainqueur (ex-Standard). The competition was already established in bitsig middenveldspel, that a low point reached with a rash tackle of the brand new old defender Naldo. The referee grabbed the back pocket, Monaco had to continue with ten. The consequences were not: after 69 minutes, it was 2-0. Radamel Falcao signed for a number of Monegasque convulsions, but the visitors gave themselves over to fate. They remain one of the last, with one point more than Guingamp. Dijon climbs out of the degradatiedal to a provisional 16th place.
Strasbourg, came to Bordeaux for the first time set up after 12 mins: a shot of Thomasson brushed right past the pole. It was the only feat of arms in a closed first half.

A critical parade, because a little later picked up and Strasbourg in the extreme, full of loot through a bouncing up and down shot distance of defender Kenny Lala. Sels and co. climbing to a provisional fifth place, Bordeaux remains mired in recession in the belly of the standings.
Thomas Foket and Björn Engels got very little for each other in Guingamp during a miserable first half. However, Reims ten minutes before the break the lead: after mistasten in the defense of Guingamp came Mathieu Cafaro only for the purpose, he did not hesitate. The home team came sharper out of the changing rooms after rest and silver-plated egg so after the equalizer, but Lebogang Phiri came on the Reimse goalkeeper. On the hour saw the world is a lot worse for Guingamp, when defender Papy Djilobodji the head of his opponent got into a duel and promptly excluded. Victim Pablo Chavarria (ex-Anderlecht, Eupen and Kortrijk) was a stretcher to be taken away. Reims made then are still entitled to the 0-2, but one single goal was enough for the victory.
