Bastia scored late in each half to beat 10-man Rennes 2-0 and end a three-match losing run in Ligue 1.
Ryad Boudebouz brilliantly opened the scoring in first-half stoppage time and Yannick Cahuzac clinched the points in the 81st minute with his first Ligue 1 goal. Rennes had earlier lost Fallou Diagne to a straight red card in the 26th minute.
The result lifted Bastia above Lens in the table, though they remain in the relegation zone. Rennes are sixth, four points outside the European places.
