Bordeaux edges Lille in nine-goal thriller
Lille, France – Ludovic Obraniak scored 3 minutes into injury 4 win over Lille on goal second-half lead.
Nicolas Maurice-Belay scored a brace, Obraniak scored the first of his two and Yoan Gouffran all scored inside 60 minutes as Bordeaux built a three-goal lead that disappeared in the final half hour.
Eden Hazard scored in the 65th for Lille, Mathieu Debuchy followed in the 74th and Nolan Roux tied the match in the 90th, but the defending Ligue 1 champions were not able to capture even a single point.
Obraniak capped the nine-goal thriller when he directed a pass from Gregory Sertic into the net in the dying seconds, spoiling his former club's comeback, and sending Bordeaux home with three big points. He joined Bordeaux from Lille last month, following a long stint with the club from 2007-12.
Bordeaux won for the third time during a four-match unbeaten streak as it kept its European hopes alive. Lille lost for the second time in its last three and has slipped well off the pace off PSG and Montpellier in third place.
Nice 0, PSG 0
Nice, France - PSG dropped points for the first time under new manager Carlo Ancelotti on Sunday, but a 0-0 draw at Nice was still enough to return to the top of Ligue 1.
Montpellier displaced PSG on Saturday, but the lackluster effort in Nice moved PSG back to the summit by one point. PSG had won its first five matches in all competitions under Ancelotti.
Nice made it tough on PSG, and picked up a point that could eventually lead to its survival. Nice is 18th, two points from safety, after its third tie in its last five matches.
St Etienne 1, Toulouse 0
Toulouse, France - Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored in the 70th minute and St Etienne defeated Toulouse, 1-0, on Sunday in Ligue 1 for its fourth victory in its last six Ligue 1 matches.
St Etienne climbed to seventh in the table, while Toulouse lost for the third time in its last four to slip to eighth.
