Cedric Mongongu: Scored against Monaco

Former Monaco defender Cedric Mongongu's 82nd-minute penalty proved the difference after Ricardo Carvalho was penalised for handball.

Evian had already beaten champions-in-waiting Paris St Germain and Lyon in Annecy this season and their latest giant-killing lifted them five points above the relegation zone.

That result dealt a blow to Sochaux's hopes of survival.

Earlier in the day defender Stoppila Sunzu had put second from bottom Les Lionceaux on the brink of victory over Marseille with a 25th minute goal.

However, their seventh league win of the season was snatched away in the 90th minute by Marseille defender Nicolas N'Koulou.

Jonathan Zebina missed a stoppage time penalty which could have claimed a come-from-behind win for Toulouse at rock bottom Ajaccio.

Zebina saw his shot saved by goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa in the third minute of added time as the match ended in a 2-2 draw. Ricardo Faty and Mehdi Mostefa had the home side in control before Issiaga Sylla and Clement Chantome hit back.

Vincent Aboukar scored a first-half penalty as Lorient halted a two-match losing streak with a 1-1 draw at Reims.

The visitors took the lead through Aboukar's penalty in first-half stoppage time before Odair Fortes struck back four minutes after the break for the hosts.

Nantes and Bordeaux battled out an uninspiring 0-0 draw at the Stade de la Beaujoire, while Montpellier's match against relegation-threatened Valenciennes also finished goalless.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
