Bordeaux missed the chance to move provisionally up to fifth place in the French league after losing 1-0 away to Bastia on Saturday.

Midfielder Adama Ba scored the winning goal in the 42nd minute of a hard-fought match as Bastia moved up to 12th, one place ahead of Nice, which beat Ajaccio 2-0 thanks to goals in each half from Belgian midfielder Christian Bruls and Argentine striker Dario Cvitanich's eighth of the season.

Elsewhere, Lorient climbed up to ninth place after beating Guingamp 2-0 at home.

Marseille's home match against Valenciennes was postponed because of torrential rain and the French league has yet to decide when it will be played.
