The Toulouse leader experienced his first defeat of the season, beaten at home by Caen 3-2 Monday, after a crazy match at the end of the 10th day of Ligue 2. Sochaux and Auxerre could not decide (0 -0) Friday night in the Doubs, while Paris FC sank in Niort (4-1).
Despite this defeat, the TFC retains its first place with three points ahead of its runner-up Sochaux, held in check by Auxerre (3rd), while his other pursuers lost points on this 10th day, with the defeat of Ajaccio (4th) against Bastia, and that of Paris FC (6th) in Niort.
Paris FC, which reacted well last Tuesday against Nîmes (2-0) after three straight defeats, therefore abandoned 5th place in favor of Le Havre (17 pts), winner 1-0 in Nîmes thanks to a goal from Senegalese Jamal Thiare (64th).
The Parisians suffered the domination of Niort, who scored by Bryan Passi (3rd), Dylan Louiserre (16th), Ibrahim Sissoko (71st) and Lenny Vallier (75), against a goal from Arnaud Tattevin (85th), and found 8th with 15 points.

Another away victory, that of Dunkirk in Pau (2-1) while the two teams finished at ten. The Dunkirk, still penultimate (6 pts), had not yet won any game this season. Pau and his coach Didier Tholot, a surprise team at the start of the season, are 7th with 15 points. The meeting ended in confusion, with several warm-ups on the pitch.
Quevilly-Rouen (11th) and Guingamp (14th) could not decide (2-2), just like Rodez (10th) and Grenoble (15th) (1-1). The GF38 who was joined in stoppage time after opening the scoring on penalty in the first period. The Isère club nonetheless recovers its first point on the road.
In the first Corsican derby since 2014, Bastia was against Ajaccio (2-0) at the Furiani stadium and extricated himself from the relegation zone.
In Nancy, the situation remains dramatic for the red lantern (4 pts, 0 victory), with a new poor performance at home, a draw (1-1) against Amiens (17th), who played the entire second period at nine after the exclusions of Tolu Arokodare (43rd) then Kader Bamba (45 + 3)!
