Andy Delort and Dennis Oliech score late for Ajaccio as they beat Montpellier 2-1 at home in Ligue 1.

Ajaccio have staged a 2-1 comeback win against Montpellier at home in Ligue 1.

The visitors had the first chance of the game and it came as early as the second minute, Souleymane Camara latching onto Younes Belhanda's through-ball only to shoot wide from inside the box.

The two sides started to cancel out each other as the first half progressed, Adrian Mutu shooting wide for Ajaccio from close range and Belhanda firing high around the half-way point for Montpellier.

Then Mehdi Mostefa headed Johan Cavalli's free kick just over the Montpellier crossbar and Dennis Oliech saw his effort saved.

Montpellier had a glorious chance to break the deadlock at the start of the second half when Fousseni Diawara brought down Souleymane Camara inside the area to give the defending French champions a penalty.

However, Belhanda failed to beat Ajaccio goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa from the spot.

Anthony Mounier saved his teammate's blushes in the 56th minute when he put Montpellier ahead with a shot from close range after being sent through on goal by Henri Bedimo.

However, Ajaccio earned all three points at Stade Francois Coty with two goals in the final 10 minutes.

Abdelhamid El Kaoutari brought down Andy Delort inside the Montpellier area and was shown a straight red card with eight minutes left on the clock.

Delort himself stepped up to take the spot kick and made no mistake from 12 yards.

Then in the first minute of injury time Dennis Oliech headed home Delort's cross from the centre of the Montpellier box to secure the points for Ajaccio.
