A match of few clear chances was decided in the final half hour, with Cédric Barbosa breaking the deadlock just after the hour mark and Daniel Wass adding a second goal 13 minutes from full time at Parc de Sports.

The victory sees Evian pull five points clear of the bottom three, though Valenciennes have a chance to cut that gap to two points when they visit Valenciennes on Saturday,.

Defeat for Nantes, meanwhile, sees them miss a chance to jump temporarily into the top half of the table, and means that their outside chances of earning European football next season appear all but extinguished.
