France: Lille back up to third with win

26 February 2006 23:06

MONACO, Feb 26 (SW) - Lille regained their third place spot in Ligue 1 on Sunday with a victory at Monaco, who dipped all the way down to 12th position in the table.

Monaco - Lille 0-1

It was an impressive showing for Lille, but yet another vast disappointment for Monaco as Lille got their winning goal despite having only ten men on the pitch.

Lille striker Jean Makoun was sent off in the 51st minute for a hard challenge on Jaroslav Plasil, but substitute Peter Odemwingie fired in the winner just eight minutes later to give Lille a big victory in their chase for the all-important third spot, which would guarantee a Champions League qualifying berth.

Marseille - Nice 1-0

Marseille jumped into fifth place in the table, four points adrift of Lille in third with a narrow win over Nice.

Toifilou Maoulida provided the only strike of the match that gave Marseille the lead in the 66th minute, and the home side finished the match with just ten players after Thomas Deruda was sent off late on.

Lens - Ajaccio 1-0

Lens are a surprising sixth in the standings after their win over relegation-threatened Ajaccio on Sunday.

Daniel Cousin's 12th goal of the season in the 18th minute was all the home side needed to secure the victory and keep up their form despite being eliminated from the UEFA Cup during the week.

Strasbourg - Troyes 2-0

Strasbourg advanced to the Round of 16 in the UEFA Cup on Thursday, but their main goal is to survive in Ligue 1, and they took a big step towards that with a win over Troyes.

Amara Diané opened the scoring for the home side on 13 minutes and they held a 1-0 lead all the way to the end until Yacine Abdessadki doubled the advantage with just two minutes to play, ensuring the victory.

Strasbourg are now just four points back of Troyes in the safety zone with 10 matches left to play this season.
