By: Manu Tournoux

Find the results of this Sunday’s matches, counting for the 26th day of Ligue 1.

This Sunday in Ligue 1 began with a parity score in a top-of-the-table clash between Brest and Lille (1-1). An ideal score for AS Monaco, direct competitor of these two teams, which had the opportunity to carry out an excellent operation in the event of success against Lorient.

But the Principality club missed the boat. ASM had to settle for a frustrating draw against a bottom team, Lorient (2-2). In an electric encounter marked by an expulsion from each side, the Merlus opened the scoring from the start with an own goal from Singo (0-1, 1st), before Mendy – also an own goal scorer – does not put the two teams back on an equal footing (1-1, 27th).

Monaco frustrated

If Fofana allowed the Monegasques to regain the advantage at the hour mark (2-1, 60th), Bakayoko, former resident of Louis-II, played the last minute saviors (2-2, 90th+5) . Monaco remains third behind Brest. Lorient is fifteenth.

Clermont regains hope

The other surprising result of the day came from Clermont, where the red lantern won against Le Havre (2-1). Still unseated, the Auvergne club signed a hopeful success of which Cham, author of a double (12th, 45th+4), was the great architect. The goal of the experienced André Ayew was not enough for the HAC (45th + 1). For its part, Reims recovered well by winning an eastern duel (2-1), thanks to Diakité (3rd) and Ito (79th). Atta had reduced the score for the Garnets (14th), without success.
