Kevin Gameiro in turn turned out to be the match winner with a goal in the 72nd minute. The home team saw the equalizing goal a few minutes later after a previous offside.
Thanks to the important three-pointer, Strasbourg is currently fifth in the ranking of the French first division with 60 points. Nice, which will play the French cup final against Nantes later on Saturday, is ranked one position lower with the same point total and one game less. The top 5 will go into Europe next season.
