Clermont brings down Grenoble and delays ESTAC’s rise to Ligue 1

ESTAC will wait. On behalf of the 36th day of Ligue 2, Clermont, the runner-up to the leader, Troyes, inflicted on Grenoble its first defeat of the season at the Stade des Alpes (2-1) this Monday evening. Pascal Gastien’s men made the difference in the first period in a game generally controlled thanks to Jim Allevinah (19th) before Mohamed Bayo made up for it in the wake of his penalty stopped by the opposing goalkeeper (45 + 2nd). Willy Semedo was content to reduce the mark at the end of the game for the locals, also from a penalty (90 + 1e).

With this success, Clermont (2nd, 69 points) secures its place as runner-up in the standings and now has a 7-point lead over Toulouse, which has two games less. The Clermontois especially delay the formalization of the rise in Ligue 1 for Troyes. Clermont can even still hope to lift the title of Ligue 2 champion by achieving a flawless ally two missteps from ESTAC. Grenoble (4th, 61 points) for its part fails to climb at least temporarily on the podium of this championship where everything remains to be played two days from the end.
