Bastia, Bordeaux move up in Ligue 1
Bastia beat Evian 2-0 Sunday to provisionally move into eighth place in the French league, one point clear of Bordeaux which thrashed Ajaccio 4-0.
Serbia winger Milos Krasic capitalized on a poor clearance from Evian defender Aldo Angoula to put Bastia ahead in the 49th minute.
Wahbi Khazri beat the offside trap in the last minute of stoppage time and rounded Evian goalkeeper Jesper Hansen to score from a tight angle.
The Corsican club remains undefeated at Stade Armand Cesari this season.
Bastia goalkeeper Mickael Landreau played his 602nd league match to tie former Monaco goalkeeper Jean-Luc Ettori’s record for most games in the top French division.
In Bordeaux, Brazilian forward Jussie scored the first and last goals, starting with a low strike in the ninth before Gregory Sertic beat Ajaccio goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa to double the lead in the 50th.
Nicolas Maurice-Belay finished off a counterattack to make it 3-0 in the 55th and Jussie headed in a cross from Sertic in the 68th to seal the win.
"We rediscovered our offensive efficiency," Sertic told BeIn Sport television.
Ajaccio has not won any away match this season and remained in the relegation zone.
Paris Saint-Germain hosts Lyon later Sunday and needs a victory to restore its four-point lead at the top of the league.
On Saturday, it was: Valenciennes 0, Lille 1; Monaco 2, Rennes 0; Guingamp 1, Nantes 0; Saint-Etienne 4, Reims 0; Lorient 3, Nice 0; and Toulouse 5, Sochaux 1.
On Friday, Marseille beat Montpellier 2-0.
