Clermont Foot 63-LOSC 0-0
An open game, but a draw. At the end of a fast-paced match, with a lot of spaces and dangerous situations, Clermont Foot 63 and LOSC neutralised each other on Sunday afternoon. The Dogues, still led by a good Edon Zhegrova, were not very inspired offensively, like Jonathan David, who was very discreet. The Auvergnats, for their part, surprised with their attacking play against a team at the top of the table. They came close to victory as they could have scored shortly after the break but the post and then Lucas Chevalier saved Lille. This is a good point for the CF63, which is still second to last. LOSC (4th), for their part, are dropping points in the race for the podium.

FC Metz-Stade Brestois 0-1
Stade Brestois: J. Le Douaron (75′)
The Stade Brestois gave themselves a scare, but they finally won on Sunday afternoon. Against a valiant and enterprising Metz side, the Bretons were able to keep a clean sheet. They were able to count on an excellent Marco Bizot, author of several decisive saves. And in the last quarter of an hour, a little against the run of play, Jérémy Le Douaron, a substitute at the start of the match, managed to make the difference with a splendid combination of control and shot with his left foot on the edge of the penalty area (75'). The Grenats tried to equalise at the end of the match but the Breton defence held firm. With this win, Stade Brest moved up to fifth place in the standings. FC Metz can have some regrets. He remains eleventh.
RC Strasbourg Alsace-Le Havre AC 2-1
RC Strasbourg Alsace: E. Emegha (21′), A. Sylla (90′+7)Le Havre AC: Y. Salmier (49′)
It came down to stoppage time between RC Strasbourg Alsace and Le Havre AC on Sunday afternoon. The Alsatians, who needed points to move a little further away from the red zone, got back into the game by opening the scoring quickly through Emanuel Emegha on a cross from the left by Dilane Bakwa (21′). However, Le Havre, a little sluggish at the start of the match, were able to raise their heads after the break. And from a cleverly played indirect free-kick at the far post, Yoann Salmier equalised with his right foot by throwing himself in (49'). The end of the match was to the advantage of the promoted club but Patrick Vieira's men resisted well. And in the dying moments of injury time, from a corner on the left, Abakar Sylla placed a furious header to give his team the three points. With this victory, RC Strasbourg Alsace moves up to tenth place in the standings, just ahead of their opponent of the day.
