Le Mans dominated from the start but had to wait until the 40th minute to break the deadlock through Vinicius De Melo´s strike.
The visitors suffered a setback when Cyriaque Louvion was sent off for a second bookable offence nine minutes after the restart, but they overcame the blow and goals from Yao Gervinho (65) and Anthony Le Tallec (86) sealed the victory.
