Les Girondins narrowed the gap to Les Gones to just four points with five games left thanks to a 2-1 victory over Caen at the Stade Chaban-Delmas on Sunday.
At the same time, they moved nine points clear of Marseille and Nancy, who are neck and neck in the race for third, and that fact was not lost on Blanc.
