Dhorasoo strike saves Lyon

A late goal by Vikash Dhorasoo earned Ligue 1 leaders Olympique Lyonnais a draw at FC Girondins de Bordeaux.
A late goal by midfield player Vikash Dhorasoo handed Ligue 1 leaders Olympique Lyonnais a 1-1 draw at mid-table FC Girondins de Bordeaux on Sunday.

Low shot
Dhorasoo, who will leave Lyon at the end of the season, was set up in the box by winger Florent Malouda to equalise against his former club with a low shot three minutes from time. Bordeaux had opened the scoring on the hour through Marouane Chamakh, who struck his fifth goal of the season following a corner by Pablo Francia.

Monaco two points behind
Lyon still top the standings with 70 points from 34 matches but AS Monaco FC, who won 2-1 at OGC Nice on Friday, are now only two points behind with four games left.

'A good point'
Paris Saint-Germain FC, who were held 0-0 on Saturday by RC Strasbourg, are third with 67 points and face Lyon in the penultimate game of the season. "It's a good point, which can be useful at the end of the season," said Lyon coach Paul Le Guen.
