French champions Paris Saint-Germain won their third Ligo 1 after their first two defeats, while Argentina striker Mauro Icardi recorded a 2-0 victory over struggling Reims on Sunday.
The result took PSG to seventh place with nine points from five matches, four points behind Raines, while Reims was 19th with one point.
In the 9th minute, Icardi, with the full support of Callien Mbabane, threw the crowd ahead with a crisp short shot at a far corner from 10 meters away.
Reims goalkeeper Predrag Rajkovic then gave Neymar a great chance in the 43rd minute when he beat three defenders with a brilliant single.
The hosts lost their best chance when substitute Bulaye Dia hit the post and was penalized a minute later as Julian Drexler left Icardi with a simple performance by Mbabane.
Mbabane found his second assist of the night, exchanging one-two with Drexler to send the ball to Icardi to tape-in in an empty net before the square.
Rajkovic made another great stop in the second half, blaming MBAP for the refusal to finish poorly in the 82nd minute, as he scored a wide goal with just the keeper to beat after a quick break. .
Pablo Sarabia fired a shot over the bar and Neymar’s free kick traveled an inch wide in the closing stages.
