Alexis Araujo has been on top form recently for Lille.

In Group A, PSG remain top of the pack despite a goalless draw with Le Havre. However, their lead is cut to just one point after Lille celebrated a win away from home against Amiens AC.

Valentin Vanbaleghem and the on-form Alexis Araujo grabbed the goals for Lille as they find themselves with the best attack in the league, 8 goals ahead of second-best Quevilly.

Racing Club slumped to their eighth successive defeat to leave them pointless at the bottom of the table when they lost to Valenciennes over the weekend.

Evian and Sochaux both won this weekend to continue fighting at the top of Group B. Evian are two points ahead of Sochaux after the latter drew with Epinal last gameweek.

Evian won 5-0 this week against Mulhouse to bring their goals scored tally to a whopping 32.

Sochaux celebrated a well-fought win against last season’s divisional champions Auxerre. They ran out 2-0 winners against the Burgundy-based club.

Chateauroux jumped to top of Group C despite losing 2-1 against Tours at the weekend.

Guingamp swapped places with them, falling to second because they were thrashed 6-1 by Stade Laval. This puts Guingamp’s goal difference at +5, compared to Chateauroux’s +7.

Saint Etienne and Clermont are still locked at the top of Group D after they both won against Lyon and Toulouse respectively.

Monaco slipped up for the second week running after they lost 2-0 to Bastia this weekend. The reigning champions now have four wins and four defeats to their name.
