LENS, Feb 11 (SW) - A late equalizer from Sylvain Wiltord allowed Lyon to escape defeat away to Lens in Ligue 1 action on Saturday.
Lens - Lyon 1-1
Brazilian striker Jussie broke the scoreless deadlock with a brilliant strike from the edge of the penalty area in the 75th minute to send the crowd into a frenzy.
Just as it appeared Lyon would suffer their second loss of the season, Wiltord struck in the second minute of stoppage time to deny Lens a big victory.
Bordeaux - Rennes 2-0
Second-placed Bordeaux made sure to take advantage of Lyon's slip as they cut the lead at the top to seven points with a win over Rennes.
The home side took the lead in the 39th minute with a strike by Fernando, and midfielder Vladimir Smicer put some space between themselves and their opponents with Bordeaux's second goal in the 68th minute.
Bordeaux also extended their unbeaten run in the league to eight matches and to 12 matches in all competitions.
Auxerre - Metz 1-1
Auxerre, sitting in third place, could not capitalize on Lyon's slip and in fact had to come from behind to earn a home draw against bottom side Metz.
Ludovic Obraniak put the visitors in front on 56 minutes, but they conceded a penalty a quarter-hour from the end and Luigi Pieroni stepped up and buried the spot kick to level the score.
Le Mans - Nice 2-0
Le Mans went into fifth place, level on points with idle PSG and Marseille, after they dispatched of Nice on Saturday.
Le Mans struck twice in quick succession as James Fanchone put them into the lead in the 61st minute and Ibrahima Bangoura doubled the advantage just four minutes later to seal the win.
Monaco - Troyes 1-1
Monaco's steady decline in the league continued on Saturday as they were held to a draw against fourth-from-bottom Troyes, leaving them a disappointing ninth in the table.
Italian striker Christian Vieri put the principality side in front 15 minutes into the match, but they gave up an equalizer to Eloge Enza Yamissi in the 65th minute
Nancy - Saint-Etienne 2-0
Another disappointing side has been Saint-Etienne, and they are now winless in five of their last six league matches after falling to Nancy, who leapfrogged them in the table.
Nancy used two early goals to do the damage, Mickaël Chretien getting the opener just nine minutes in and Elie Kroupi doubling the lead six minutes later from the penalty spot.
Nantes - Sochaux 3-1
Mamadou Diallo had a career day on Saturday as he scored three times in Nantes' win over Sochaux.
Diallo fired Nantes into the lead on 20 minutes, but striker Araujo Ilan leveled for the visitors in the 34th minute.
The equalizer didn't discourage Diallo, however, as he retook the lead for Nantes in the 68th minute and then put the match away six minutes later with his third of the game.
Strasbourg - Ajaccio 2-2
A battle of two teams in the relegation zone ended up helping neither side as both remain deep in trouble after a draw on Saturday.
Alexander Farnerud put Strasbourg into the lead just two minutes into the match, but Moussa N'Diaye canceled out the opener in the 59th minute to make the score 1-1.
Amara Diané wasted no time, retaking the lead less than a minute later for Strasbourg, but again N'Diaye leveled for Ajaccio in the 63rd minute.
