Ligue 1 wrap: Saint-Etienne climb as Lyon slump

7 April 2013 19:41

Saint-Etienne took sole possession of third place in Ligue 1 after 10-man Lyon faltered at Stade Reims on Sunday.

Christophe Galtier's men claimed a narrow 1-0 victory over lowly Evian Thonon Gaillard at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.

Saint-Etienne scored the match-winning goal 12 minutes from time, when Evian goalkeeper Bertrand Laquait turned the ball into his own net.

Francois Clerc whipped in a cross to the back post, picking out midfielder Romain Hamouma.

The former Caen man headed the ball towards goal and his effort hit the underside of the crossbar, and received a helping hand as Laquait failed to keep it out.

Saint-Etienne move into third on goal difference, ahead of Lyon, who suffered a surprise 1-0 loss to Reims.

Lyon were looking to end a four-game winless run but their hopes of doing so were dented when Milan Bisevac gave away a penalty and was sent off as a result.

Grzegorz Krychowiak converted the spot-kick, handing Reims their third successive home victory after trumping Rennes and leaders Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks.

And Lille took full advantage of Lyon's loss, with a thumping 5-0 win at home over Lorient moving them to within a point of Remi Garde's side.

Lille, French champions in 2010/11, were 4-0 up at half-time thanks to a Salomon Kalou brace and goals from Dimitri Payet and Lucas Digne, the latter from the penalty spot, with a strike from Ronny Rodelin completing the rout early in the second half.
