Monaco failed to move clear of Paris Saint-Germain at the top of Ligue 1 as they were held to a 1-1 draw at Reims on Sunday evening.
Reims took the lead early on through a Antoine Devaux header, but a Joao Moutinho free-kick drew the title hopefuls level soon afterwards.
Reims saw Atila Turan dismissed three minutes from time, but Monaco had to settle for a point that leaves them tied with PSG on 18 points at the top.
Newly promoted Nantes won 3-1 at Rennes to move above their opponents in the top half of Ligue 1 on Sunday.
Filip Djordjevic opened the scoring in the 17th minute, firing in the rebound after he had headed Lucas Deaux's cross onto the left-hand post.
Nantes doubled their lead two minutes from half-time when the ball came to Serge Gakpe, who did well to change direction, turn round his marker and fire a low shot across goal into the bottom right corner.
Nelson Oliveira pulled one back for Rennes 10 minutes after the interval, moments after Julien Feret had headed onto the post for the home side.
Deaux sealed the match in stoppage time.
Montpellier were held to a fifth successive draw, finishing 1-1 with Ajaccio in Corsica in a match which both teams finished with 10 men.
Ajaccio got off to the worst possible start when midfielder Claude Goncalves was sent off in the ninth minute for what was harshly judged to have been a deliberate handball to clear Souleymane Camara's shot off the line.
Remy Cabella fired the spot-kick powerfully and even though Ajaccio goalkeeper Guilherme Ochoa got his hands to it, he couldn't stop it from going into the top left side of goal.
The game changed in the 36th minute when Ronald Zubar headed Johan Cavalli's free-kick down across goal and into the bottom right corner for the equaliser.
Moments later, Montpellier were also reduced to 10 men when Yassine Jebbour received a second booking following a poor tackle on Alessandro Crescenzi.
Ajaccio could have won the match in the last minute but Montpellier goalkeeper Geoffrey Jourdren pulled off a fantastic double save to keep out Paul Lasne's 20-yard attempt and then stop Aboubacar Camara's follow up.
