Facing ESTAC Troyes on September 10, 2001 on the sixth matchday of the championship, the Red and Whites won 2-0 thanks to goals from Shabani Nonda and Oliver Bierhoff. It was in the 37th minute that the Congolese striker opened the scoring after a superb bit of interplay. Picked out with an inch-perfect ball by Ludovic Giuly, Nonda controlled and hammered home a powerful volley without the ball hitting the ground.
