Ligue 2 Update: Auxerre Upset, Valenciennes Relegated, and St. Etienne’s Unbeaten Streak Ends

Leader of Ligue 2, Auxerre was beaten (4-3) at Quevilly-Rouen in a crazy match this Saturday. His runner-up Saint-Étienne, for his part, experienced a bad afternoon in Ajaccio (2-0) during the 32nd day, fatal to Valenciennes relegated to the National.

Ligue 2 is entering its final sprint and Valenciennes is already relegated. VA sank 4-1 at the Hainaut stadium against Pau (9th). With six days remaining, the Northerners only have 17 points and can no longer hold on. After 19 years in the first or second division, Valenciennes will play in the third level. Epilogue of a season where the only ray of sunshine was the journey to the semi-final of the Coupe de France.

At the other end of the ranking, Auxerre also had a bad evening at the penultimate QRM. The Auxerres, however, maintain a seven-point lead at the top. AJA was surprised by a goal from Kalifa Coulibaly (8th), before responding thanks to Gauthier Hein (31st) and Ado Onaiwu (58th). But Balthazar Pierret (66th), then Mamadou Camara (90+2) put the Normans back in front. Onaiwu thought he could save the point from the draw (90+5) when a fault from Issa Soumaré, excluded, offered a very well placed free kick which Papa Ndiaga Yade sent to the bottom (90+10).

End of Stéphanoise series

The Greens saw their series of eight games without defeat come to an end in Ajaccio (2-0) at the end of a meeting marked by controversial refereeing decisions. They could lose their place as runners-up to Angers, traveling to Grenoble on Monday.

ASSE first conceded a penalty, transformed by Christopher Ibayi (17th), for a handball in the area from Benjamin Bouchouari, who had in fact pushed the ball away with his shoulder. The Stéphanois then conceded a header from Vidal (45+3) following a corner. In the second period, they found themselves at 10 after the very severe exclusion of Thomas Monconduit (84th).

Another candidate for Ligue 1, Laval sank at home 3-0 against Annecy (15th). The Tangos were overtaken in fourth place by Paris FC, winner in Troyes (2-1) and determined to join the fight for the climb. Another candidate, Caen beat Rodez 1-0 and precedes his evening opponent in 6th place.

Bordeaux greets Elis and bows

Bordeaux (13th) conceded a heavy 3-2 defeat at home against Bastia (14th). After greeting their striker Alberth Elis, who came to the stadium while he continues his convalescence after his serious head trauma, the Gironde supporters quickly became disillusioned. The Corsicans, whose assistant coach is a former Bordeaux glory, Lilian Laslandes, quickly led 2-1 and resisted the comeback of the Marine et Blanc.

At the bottom of the ranking, ahead of Valenciennes already in National and QRM penultimate, Concarneau (18th) took a valuable point at home against Amiens (0-0), unlike Troyes (17th) beaten at home by the PFC (2- 1) and Dunkirk (16th) also defeated on its lawn by Guingamp (1-0).
