Almost frozen. This Saturday, at the end of this last day of Ligue 2, only one of the positions at stake changed owner. In a crazy end of the match, Caen tore off his support against Clermont (2-1). Reduced to ten in the 38th minute, the Normans opened the scoring in 82nd before being joined in 89th. Finally, a penalty registered in additional time gives them the three points which make them avoid the dams. It is therefore Niort, beaten by Guingamp (2-0), who will play the dams, against Villefranche, to avoid going down to National 1.

Despite his setback against Caen, Clermont-Ferrand was promoted to Ligue 1 for the first time in its history.

Toulouse, held in check 3-3 by Dunkirk, finished on the third step of the podium while Troyes, defeated by Le Havre (3-2), was already champions.

Les Violets will play the play-offs for the climb with Grenoble, fourth and winner of Rodez (1-0), and Paris FC, who won against Chambly (3-0).

The latter are directly relegated to the National, in the company of Châteauroux, dead last and whose future had been sealed for several weeks.

AJ Auxerre, despite their victory against Sochaux (3-2), will therefore not see Ligue 1 next year, finishing sixth.
