On Sunday, there was a busy set of matches in Ligue 1. Stade de Reims and Toulouse FC earned three crucial points while Clermont Foot drew their match against OGC Nice. Here's a recap of these three thrilling matches.

Stade de Reims 2-1 Le Havre

Will Still and his team keep their hopes of playing in European competition next season alive with a significant win over Le Havre. Despite the lack of scoring in the first half, there was plenty of suspense in the final 45 minutes. 

It started with Mohamed Daramy coming into the contest as a substitute and scoring to break the 0-0 deadlock in the 64th minute. Le Havre responded ten minutes later, with Abdoulaye Touré scoring a penalty kick in the 74th minute. 

The game was heading toward a 1-1 draw, but things took a turn when Reims, down to ten players following Thomas Foket's red card in the 66th minute, received a penalty after a VAR check during stoppage time in the second half. Daramy took the shot and sealed the victory for Reims with a game-winning goal as he also recorded his brace.

Toulouse 3-1 LOSC Lille

Les Violets needed a come-from-behind win to secure all three points after Lille took a 1-0 lead late in the first half courtesy of a goal from Hákon Haraldsson. In the final 45 minutes, Toulouse scored three unanswered goals for the win. 

Christian Mawissa first leveled the scoring in the 49th minute before Vincent Sierro broke the deadlock in the 60th minute. Less than ten minutes later, Thijs Dallinga added an insurance goal that allowed Carles Martínez Novell and his squad to secure the victory. Toulouse's win puts them four points above the relegation playoff place, which FC Lorient currently occupies.

Clermont Foot 0-0 OGC Nice 

Neither Nice nor Clermont could break the 0-0 deadlock during the 90 minutes. Francesco Farioli and his team registered 23 total shots, but only four were on target while Les Lanciers had 13 total shots, with five reaching the target. 

The scoreless draw isn't ideal for Nice and their UEFA Champions League aspirations, especially after AS Monaco secured a win over RC Lens to leapfrog them into third place. Despite getting a point, Clermont Foot remain bottom of the table, trailing FC Lorient by five points for the relegation playoff spot.
