The hosts took the lead in the ninth minute when Florian Raspentino found himself with space inside the box, and the striker made no mistake in turning the ball home.

Reims almost found a response through Floyd Ayite, but he hit the left post having been picked out by Franck Signorino's pass.

Mads Albæk was wasteful for the visitors when he was found by Odair Fortes, with the midfielder sending his header wide of goal from close range.

Gianni Bruno made it two for Bastia just before the break as he caught hold of Ilan Araujo's ball to convert from the centre of goal.

Bastia gave the visitors a potential route back into the game when Sambou Yatabare was shown a straight red card after 77 minutes, but the home side's defence held out to record an impressive 2-0 win.
