Ligue 1 Wrap: Lille, Marseille, Lyon all defeated

2 February 2014 23:42

Lille's faltering top-three challenge suffered another blow as they fell to a 1-0 Ligue 1 defeat at Nice on Sunday.

Rene Girard's men remain in the UEFA Champions League spots in third, but are now just one point above fourth-placed Saint-Etienne and are 13 adrift of league leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

Mathieu Bodmer's strike in first-half injury time was enough to complete victory at the Allianz Riviera, moving the hosts up to ninth.

Lille have now gone five matches without a victory in France's top flight, and will be keen for a swift response at home to Sochaux next Saturday.

Marseille and Lyon both failed to take full advantage in their quest to reach third, with the former drawing 2-2 at home to Toulouse, while the latter fell to a 2-0 defeat at Rennes.

Dimitri Payet and Mathieu Valbuena scored either side of Wissam Ben Yedder's leveller, as Marseille led 2-1 at half-time at the Stade Velodrome.

But Etienne Didot equalised on the hour mark as Alain Casanova's side left with a share of the spoils.

Lyon's three-match winning run in Ligue 1 ended at the Stade de la Route de Lorient.

Cedric Hountondji had fired the hosts into a 22-minute lead, while Samuel Umtiti's straight red card four minutes before the break further hindered Lyon.

Transfer-window signing Ola Toivonen notched his maiden goal for Rennes to complete the win after 66 minutes.
