Monaco's troubles continued as they lost 2-0 at Ligue 1 relegation rivals Dijon in their first match since Thierry Henry's departure and the return of Leonardo Jardim.
The principality club fell behind in the 24th minute when Kwon Chang-hoon slotted home, and were subsequently reduced to 10 men around the hour mark as Naldo, following a challenge on Julio Tavares, was sent off for the second successive league game.
Dijon then extended their lead in the 69th minute, Naim Sliti firing in after Tavares dispossessed Fode Toure.
Jardim, a day on from being reappointed as boss following Henry's exit, watched on from the stands at the Stade Gaston Gerard, with caretaker Franck Passi in the dugout.
Second-bottom Monaco remain three points from safety, while Dijon - celebrating their first league win under Antoine Kombouare - are up two places to 16th, two points clear of the relegation zone.
Basement boys Guingamp stay a point behind Monaco after their 1-0 home loss to Reims, for whom Mathieu Cafaro scored in the 38th minute.
Guingamp also had a man sent off, with Papy Djilobodji being given his marching orders in the second half.
A stoppage-time goal from Kenny Lala gave fifth-placed Strasbourg a 1-0 home win against Bordeaux.
The visitors wore jerseys with the name 'Emi' and the number nine on for the pre-match warm-up, in tribute to their former player Emiliano Sala after a plane carrying the striker went missing.
Nice beat Nimes 2-0, with Youcef Attal and Allan Saint-Maximin getting on the scoresheet.
