Guingamp, France (SportsNetwork.com) - The top two sides in the Ligue 1 table, Marseille and PSG, both suffered 1-0 defeats on Sunday, allowing things to tighten up a bit toward the top.
After going unbeaten in all competitions this season, PSG suffered its first defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday, and followed it up with another setback on Sunday, losing 1-0 at Guingamp to an 11th-minute goal from Jeremy Pied.
Marseille entered the weekend one point clear of the defending champions and had a great chance to extend that advantage at Monaco later in the day.
But the leaders also stumbled to a 1-0 loss as Bernardo Silva struck the lone goal for the home side in the 67th minute.
The big winners of the weekend were Lyon as the club claimed a 3-0 win over Caen on Friday, leaving the club within two points of Marseille.
Fourth-place St Etienne failed to take advantage of the top two sides losing as the club was held to a 0-0 draw at Nice, while Lille climbed four points above the bottom three with a 3-0 triumph over 10-man Toulouse.
Maxime Spano was sent off for Toulouse just two minutes into the match, and although Lille's Marko Basa failed to convert from the penalty spot, Djibril Sidibe scored in the seventh minute before second-half goals from Ryan Mendes and Nolan Roux.
