By: Manu Tournoux

Saint-Etienne got the better of Auxerre this Saturday during the 28th day of Ligue 2.

Thanks to a goal from Cardona at the start of the second period, the Greens won by a narrow margin of 1-0 (55e). Enough to overcome the Auxerre leader, who has only taken two points in his last three outings to date.

Winners four times out of the five tricks completed, the Stéphanois temporarily climb onto the podium of the elite antechamber. In first play-off position, therefore, four lengths from Angers and seven points from the top – only the first two places being synonymous with direct accession to Ligue 1.

Laval and Caen nevertheless remain in ambush, for a rare density in the race for promotion. The 13theBordeaux, only six points behind the fifth qualifying position for the play-offs.
