Lyon go top, Bordeaux into second
Lyon moved top of Ligue 1 today with a 3-0 victory over Reims at the Stade Gerland. Anthony Weber's own goal on the stroke of half-time set Les Gones on their way, and Bafetimbi Gomis doubled the hosts' advantage in the 73rd minute before Lisandro Lopez sealed matters at the death.
The result lifted Remi Garde's team a point clear of Bordeaux who moved up to second by beating fellow high-fliers Marseille. Yoann Gouffran scored the only goal eight minutes into the second half to see off a Marseille side who finished with ten men following the dismissal of Lucas Mendes for a last-minute professional foul.
Dario Cvitanich's second-half goal earned Nice all three points at home to a Toulouse side who continue to slide down the standings. Cvitanich's 60th-minute effort proved the difference between the two and earned Nice a deserved win, although Toulouse will feel slightly unfortunate after hitting the woodwork twice, the second occasion coming three minutes from the end.
The result lifts improving Nice into 11th place while Toulouse, who were in the top two not so long ago, are now down to ninth after slumping to a third successive league defeat and fourth on the trot in all competitions.
