Anthony Modeste and Ilan find the net as Bastia come from behind to claim a last-minute win against nine-man Reims at Stade Armand Cesari.

Bastia came from behind to earn a deserved late win against nine-man Reims at Stade Armand Cesari.

Nicolas Fauvergue fired home from a Aissa Mandi free kick to give the visitors the lead on six minutes.

Anthony Weber was then shown a straight red card for a foul on Florian Thauvin inside the penalty area just before the hour-mark.

Anthony Modeste converted the resultant spot kick, placing the ball into the bottom right corner.

Modeste had the chance to put his side ahead on 73 minutes, but his low effort from 10 yards was well saved by Agassa Kossi.

Reims were reduced to nine men eight minutes from time when Mickael Tacalfred was dismissed for a poor tackle on Modest.

Bastia put their numerical advantage to good use in stoppage time, as Modest found Ilan in space and the Brazilian tucked away his first goal for the club from eight yards.
