Andre-Pierre Gignac: Celebrates his late winner

Lyon were unable to pick up the win they needed to move level with Paris St Germain at the top of Ligue 1.

Kamel Chafni gave the strugglers an eighth-minute lead, only for Tripy Makonda's own goal eight minutes into the second half to earn Remi Garde's visitors a point.

The draw means Lyon trail PSG by two points, following the leaders' unexpected loss at Reims on Saturday, while Brest move five points clear of the bottom three.

Andre-Pierre Gignac's late goal rescued Marseille against bottom club Troyes as they kept in touch with the top two with a 2-1 win.

Brazilian striker Marco had given the visitors the lead in the 71st minute as they sought what would have been just a fourth win of the season.

However, a Florian Jarjat own goal levelled the scores with nine minutes left and, buoyed by the equaliser, Gignac struck a minute later to seal the points and move OM to within three points of Lyon.

Lille battled from a goal down to maintain their European push with a hard-fought Ligue 1 victory over Bordeaux at the Grand Stade Lille Metropole.

Jaroslav Plasil had given Les Girondins the lead from the penalty spot just after the half-hour mark.

But Rudi Garcia's side responded well and turned the game on its head thanks to second-half goals from Ronny Rodelin and Salomon Kalou to secure their fourth straight league win and climb to seventh in the standings.
