PSG and Montpellier on level terms in France

Paris Saint-Germain FC are level with Montpellier Hérault SC at the top of Ligue 1 after contrasting fortunes in matches that ended 1-0, with AC Ajaccio cruelly denied a second win of the season.

Paris Saint-Germain FC are level with Montpellier Hérault SC at the top of Ligue 1; PSG won 1-0 at FC Sochaux-Montbéliard, while table-topping Montpellier went down by the same score at Valenciennes FC.

Kevin Gameiro hit PSG's only goal after 20 minutes, collecting a ball from former Sochaux man Jérémy Menez, losing his marker and rounding goalkeeper Teddy Richert before applying the finish. Foued Kadir, meanwhile, was on target moments after the restart, tidying up after Montpellier goalkeeper Geoffrey Jourdren spilled David Ducourtoix's speculative shot.

The top two are five points clear of league champions LOSC Lille Métropole, who take on Dijon FCO on Sunday, with Olympique Lyonnais visiting FC Lorient. Fourth-ranked Lyon are now level on 29 points with Stade Rennais FC, who drew 1-1 against Stade Brestois 29, and Toulouse FC, who beat Évian Thonon Gaillard FC 2-1.

Elsewhere, AS Saint-Étienne secured a 2-0 victory at home against SM Caen and a last-gasp Daniel Niculae strike saw AS Nancy-Lorraine deny rock-bottom AC Ajaccio what would have been their second victory of the season, with the game ending 2-2.

Olympique de Marseille and FC Girondins de Bordeaux drew 0-0 in the night's late fixture.
