Rennes 4 – Bordeaux 2 (Ligue 1, February 6, 2010) Rennes got off to the perfect start when Sylvain Marveaux opened the scoring in the third minute and Jimmy Briand doubled their lead from the spot 15 minutes later. A shock seemed on the cards when Ismael Bangoura extended their advantage three minutes after the break although the champions threatened a comeback with goals from Yoan Gouffran and Wendell. Substitute Asamoah Gyan, who had only been on the pitch a matter of seconds, put the result beyond doubt 12 minutes from time.
Grenoble 5 – Auxerre 0 (Ligue 1, February 6, 2010) Grenoble stunned in-form Auxerre as four first half goals helped the league’s rock-bottom side to a stunning 5-0 victory at the Stade des Alpes. Danijel Ljuboja, Daisuke Matsui and a brace from Nassim Akrour ensured the hosts were out of sight before the break. Matsui grabbed a second eight minutes after the restart to cap a brilliant night for Grenoble who recorded only their second league victory of the season.
PSG 0 – Lorient 3 (Ligue 1, February 6, 2010) All Lorient’s goals came in the first-half, a penalty through Marama Vahirua, and the others from Kevin Gameiro and Morgan Amalfitano which led to calls for the first time this season from the notoriously emotional PSG fans to chant for coach Antoine Kombouare to be dismissed.
Nice 1 – Lille 1 (Ligue 1, February 6, 2010) A long punt from Loic Remy was only half headed away, allowing Chaouki Ben Saada to convert and give the hosts a shock lead. Lille were far from their most free-flowing for the duration of the game but levelled matters on 74 minutes as the unmarked Tulio de Melo headed home a free-kick from Ludovic Obraniak.
Boulogne 0 – Montpellier 2 (Ligue 1, February 6, 2010) There were no problems for Montpellier as the surprise packages of the title race this season came away with a 2-0 win at second from bottom Boulogne thanks to a first half effort by Souleymane Camara and then one in time added on at the end of the match by Victor Hugo Montano.
Sochaux 1 – Nancy 1 (Ligue 1, February 6, 2010) The visitors took a first-half lead at the Stade Auguste Bonal courtesy of a goal from Issiar Dia and they had also hit the woodwork twice before Stephane Dalmat levelled matters after the break for Sochaux.
