Brest beat Bordeaux, Lyon edge Lorient
Bordeaux suffered a UEFA Europa League hangover in a disappointing 2-0 defeat at home to lowly Brest. A Benoit Tremoulinas own goal and a late Ahmed Kantari penalty confirmed a third consecutive Ligue 1 defeat for Les Girondins and left a dent in their hopes of a European spot.
In contrast, Brest's first win in five attempts saw them jump to 14th in the table, five points clear of Evian who occupy the final relegation place.
Lyon kept up the pressure on Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain after coming from behind against Lorient to score three unanswered goals, registering their first home win of 2013.
The visitors took the lead at the Stade Gerland in the 11th minute through Jeremie Aliadiere's header before Lisandro Lopez drew things level in the 24th. Rachid Ghezzal then put OL in front in the 50th minute and Arnold Mvuemba added their third in stoppage time to secure a victory that takes them level on points with PSG, who are at home against third-placed Marseille - five points behind the top two - this evening.
