Ligue 1 wrap: Montpellier on brink of title glory

14 May 2012 09:19

Montpellier moved to the brink of a maiden Ligue 1 title while Auxerre were condemned to relegation on Sunday.

Substitute Karim Ait Fana scored the winner from close range in the fourth minute of injury-time to help Montpellier beat defending champions Lille 1-0 at the Stade de la Mosson.

The championship will be decided next weekend, with Rene Girard's Montpellier needing just a point from their final match of the season.

Despite being relegated to Ligue 2 after falling 3-0 to Marseille, Auxerre still have a part to play in the destination of this season's title.

Auxerre host Montpellier in the final round of Ligue 1 and a win for the hosts, coupled with a PSG victory would see the trophy make its way to Paris for the first time since 1994.

A spectacular second-half hat-trick from Brazilian striker Nene kept PSG's championship hopes alive as they disposed of Stade Rennes 3-0 in the French capital.

Lyon will play in next season's Europa League following their 1-1 draw with relegation-threatened Ajaccio, while Yoan Gouffran's dramatic winner from the spot earned 10-man Bordeaux a 1-0 victory over Lorient.

Bruno Grougi was the hero as Brest gave their survival hopes a boost with a vital 1-0 victory at home to Valenciennes, but Caen remain in relegation trouble after they were beaten 3-1 by fellow strugglers Sochaux.

Nancy confirmed their top-flight status for next season, overcoming Saint Etienne 3-2 at the Stade Mercel Picot.

Elsewhere, Nice's Nemanja Pejcinovic missed a penalty in the side's 1-1 draw with Evian TG and Toulouse also drew 1-1 at Dijon.
