Valenciennes held AS Saint Etienne to a 0-0 draw at home in Ligue 1.
Neither Valenciennes or their opponents AS Saint Etienne were able to break the deadlock in a tight Ligue 1 match of few clear chances.
The failure of either side to score was down to woeful finishing, and despite 21 efforts on goal between them, both Valenciennes and ASSE managed just a single shot on target each.
Given the goalscoring form of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang this season, Saint Etienne were hopeful of their Gabon striker finding the net, but despite four attempts on the Valenciennes net, none even troubled goalkeeper Nicolas Penneteau.
The visitors retain their hopes of a UEFA Champions League spot for next season, but may feel an opportunity was missed given that Olympique Lyonnais could overtake them in third with a victory.
