Gazelec Ajaccio recorded their first-ever Ligue 1 victory on Saturday as they beat Nice 3-1.
At the 11th time of asking, the tiny Corsican club marked their maiden top-flight campaign with a win as Thierry Laurey's men overcame the high-flying visitors.
Gregory Pujol opened the scoring within two minutes at the Stade Ange Casanova, but 10 minutes later Roderic Filippi's own goal drew les Aiglons level.
This would be Gazelec's night, though, as Filippi netted in the right end, with Damjan Djokovic wrapping up the scoring on a night which saw their substitute Jerome Le Moigne sent off towards the end.
Fellow strugglers Montpellier moved out of the bottom three on goal difference, thanks to a 2-0 home win against Bastia.
Ryad Boudebouz opened the scoring against his former club and Delvin Ndinga made sure of the points when he acrobatically steered the ball beyond Jean-Louis Leca on 88 minutes.
Lorient and Rennes shared a 1-1 draw at the Stade du Moustoir, where both side ended with 10 men.
Raphael Guerreiro took the lead but Lorient's chances of holding on for a fifth win of the season took a blow when Lamine Kone was shown his second yellow midway through the second half.
Goal-line technology saw Kamil Grosicki's whipped free-kick awarded, before Rennes were also reduced to 10 men when Giovanni Sio was dismissed late on.
Elsewhere, 10-man Angers held on for a valuable point which saw them move a point clear in second in the Ligue 1 table following a goalless draw with Guingamp.
Angers' night was made more difficult when substitute Slimane Sissoko was shown a straight red with 10 minutes to play for a two-footed lunge but, despite that disadvantage, the hosts almost stole the points when Cheikh Ndoye's header crashed against the bar.
