ASSE thrashed Nice at home in Ligue 1 to cement their status as the form team in the division.
AS Saint Etienne destroyed Nice at home in Ligue 1 to keep up their impressive chase for Europe.
ASSE are certainly the form team in the division at present, with their four wins and a draw in their last five matches helping them climb into 5th place and into the running for a UEFA Europa League place.
They are far from out of the battle for the UEFA Champions League either though – just two points behind Olympique de Marseille in third.
The confidence shone through the side against Nice, with a brace from Brandao and a goal each from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Yohan Mollo accounting for the scoring.
It was total domination.
Nice had just one shot in the match, blocked before it could even reach the goalkeeper, and were not aided by the red card issued to Valentin Eysseric in the first half for a terrible challenge on Jeremy Clement.
Clement was substituted soon afterwards, and Saint Etienne made the extra man count.
