Paris Saint-Germain FC suffered their first defeat under coach Carlo Ancelotti after AS Nancy-Lorraine midfielder Yohan Mollo struck two minutes from time for a 2-1 win.
Mollo was involved in both goals, the 22-year-old supplying the cross Bakaye Traoré controlled before beating Salvatore Sirigu after 18 minutes. Mohamed Sissoko headed PSG level five minutes after the restart, but the visitors were unable to work a second breakthrough and were caught on the counterattack when Mollo converted Benjamin Moukandjo's through ball to seal 11th-placed Nancy's fourth win in five unbeaten Ligue 1 matches. PSG remain level with leaders Montpellier Hérault, whose scheduled match with Olympique de Marseille was moved to 11 April
AS Saint-Étienne missed the chance to move fifth, despite twice taking the lead against OGC Nice, who ran out 3-2 winners thanks to François Clerc's goal two minutes from time. At the other end of the table, FC Sochaux-Montbéliard moved level on points with fourth-from-bottom Stade Brestois 29, after coming from behind to beat them 2-1.
Elsewhere, AJ Auxerre overcame Valenciennes FC 2-0, Évian Thonon Gaillard FC won 1-0 at FC Lorient and FC Girondins de Bordeaux were held to a 1-1 home draw by Dijon FCO.
