Nantes boss Michel der Zarkarian has seen his side leapfrog Nice in the Ligue 1 table courtesy of a 2-1 away victory.
Alexis Alegue Elandi opened the scoring after just 11 minutes, firing into the left corner of the Nice goal after being found by Youssouf Sabaly's through-ball.

Alexandre Mendy was presented with Nice's first opening of the encounter but the striker's touch failed him inside the area with 38 minutes played.
Mendy did find the back of the net early in the second half but his 50th-minute strike was ruled out for offside, as Nice looked to build on their equaliser.
Nantes move up to seventh in the Ligue 1 table, one point ahead of Nice in eighth.
