On Sunday, Nantes and Cleermont played out a 1-1 draw at the Stade de la Beaujoire. Nantes were looking for a victory following a disappointing 1-1 draw with Nice in their previous game. Cleermont had lost their previous match against Brest. Nantes and Cleermont currently occupy 15th and 8th spots in the league, with 12 points and 18 points respectively after 13 matches.

After an uneventful first half, Cleermont certainly were out of the blocks quickly in the second half, with a goal from Neto Borges in the 54th minute. In the end though, their celebrations were kept brief, as Mostafa Mohamed equalised for Nantes on the 73 minute mark, to level the score at 1-1.

Substitutions for Nantes included Mostafa Mohamed, Dennis Appiah, Evann Guessand, Sebastien Corchia and Marcus Coco for Samuel Moutoussamy, Fabien Centtonze, Pedro Chirivella, Moses Simon and Quentin Merlin, respectively. Cleermont brought on Jim Allevinah, Arial Mendy, Grejohn Kyei and Muhammed-Cham Saracevic, to replace Elbasan Rashani, Neto Borges, Komnen Andric and Saif-Eddine Khaoui.

The referee booked two players from Cleermont, Maximiliano Caufriez and Yohann Magnin.

Nantes will next play Reims away, with Cleermont facing Montpellier at home.
