SC Bastia, 1-0 winner of the Corsican derby against AC Ajaccio for the first of Lilian Laslandes, maintained its three points lead over the first relegation, Annecy. In front of its audience at the Armand Cesari stadium at the end of the 23rd day, Sporting was under pressure after Saturday's victories at Annecy, Dunkirk and Quevilly-Rouen. Thanks to this result, Bastia remains 16th in the ranking and maintains, with 26 points, its three lengths lead over Annecy, first relegation, and Dunkirk 18th. As for the ACA, it remains stuck in 8th place (33 points) within reach of the play-off places for access to Ligue 1.
The Bastiais, who remained on two setbacks in a row, made the difference thanks to a nice goal from Migouel Alfarola who, at the conclusion of a great collective action, took over without opposition a surgical center behind his captain Christophe Vincent (55th ) to the great delight of the 14,000 spectators. The arrival on the bench of Lilian Laslandes, the former Gironde and Auxerre striker, to succeed Régis Brouard, sacked the day after the defeat at Valenciennes (3-1) on January 29, seems to have created an electric shock that he will have to be confirmed on Saturday in Quevilly-Rouen.
