LOSC lose ground in Reims defeat

LOSC Lille passed up the chance to go second in Ligue 1 as they slipped to a 2-1 home loss to Stade de Reims, on a day when Olympique de Marseille and FC Nantes both won.

LOSC Lille spurned the opportunity to move second in Ligue 1 as they succumbed to a surprise 2-1 loss at home to Stade de Reims.

The hosts made the running in the first period but struggled to find a way past their well-organised opponents and fell behind on 73 minutes when a Djibril Sidibé clearance rebounded off Odair Fortes and into the net.

Grzegorz Krychowiak then nodded in from a corner shortly afterwards, and although an Anthony Weber own goal reduced the deficit, LOSC slipped to a defeat that leaves them seven points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

Olympique de Marseille and FC Nantes lie two points shy of fourth-placed AS Saint-Étienne after both won earlier in the day. OM came from behind at Évian Thonon Gaillard FC, Benoît Cheyrou cancelling out Modou Sougou's 15th-minute opener and André-Pierre Gignac hitting the winner before the break.

As for Nantes, they had to wait until the 89th minute before they mustered a breakthrough at home to FC Lorient. Ismaël Bangoura fired in the winner to secure a 1-0 success for the sixth-placed side.
