Auxerre carried out the good operation of the 14th day of Ligue 2, passing its evening opponent and rival for the promotion at the end of the season Saint-Étienne thanks to a prolific 5-2 victory at home on Saturday. Having moved up to 3rd place in the ranking, the Icaunais also took advantage of the misstep of leader Laval, surprised at home by Concarneau (0-3), and the completely crazy draw from Angers to Pau (4-4) to get closer of the top two in Ligue 2.
For the Greens, who slipped to 5th place in the standings (24 points) behind Grenoble, 2-1 winner in Amiens, it is the second defeat in a row, after the one suffered at home against Paris FC during the 13th day.

The runner-up of the Mayennais, Angers, did not really take advantage of the opportunity. The Angevins, however, believed they had pocketed the three points of victory - which would have allowed them to regain the lead in the championship thanks to a better goal difference - thanks to a goal from Jean-Mattéo Bahoya at the very end of the match, giving them back the lead. 4-3 advantage... before seeing their opponents equalize in added time (4-4). Angers remains second, with 27 points.
