Montpellier return to Ligue 1 summit

Montpellier Hérault SC returned to the top in France after a narrow 1-0 victory against OGC Nice and Paris Saint-Germain FC won by the same scoreline against Stade Brestois 29.

Montpellier Hérault SC required a third successive home win to leapfrog overnight leaders Olympique Lyonnais and they managed precisely that thanks to a 1-0 success against OGC Nice.

Souleymane Camara proved the difference between the two sides, coming off the bench to turn his third league goal of the season into the net 15 minutes from time and ensure the club their best ever start to a Ligue 1 season.

René Girard's charges are a point clear of Lyon after five matches, while Paris Saint-Germain FC are two behind the early pacesetters after posting the same result against Stade Brestois 29. The French top-flight's €42m record signing Javier Pastore made the breakthrough with his first goal for PSG on 68 minutes.

Elsewhere, AS Nancy-Lorraine find themselves third from bottom after being held to a goalless draw by AJ Auxerre, who lie tenth.
