Paris Saint-Germain / Havre AC : 3 - 0
On paper, the visit of the league's bottom side to the Parc des Princes appeared a comfortable home win, but the hosts had to wait until four minutes before the interval to finally pierce Ligue 1's most porous rearguard.
Ludovic Giuly, who had failed to take two chances earlier in the game, raced onto Jérôme Rothen's pass before producing a low drive which beat former PSG keeper Christophe Revault in the visitors' goal.
Giuly then turned provider for Rothen to double the home side's advantage ten minutes after the break. The diminutive former Barcelona star's ball was nodded down by Guillaume Hoarau, and Rothen fired across Revault and into the bottom corner.
Hoarau grabbed his 17th of the season in the final minute, scoring against the club he helped to promotion last season to all but condemn them to a speedy return to Ligue 2.
