Monaco slip, Saint-Etienne win
Sochaux boosted their Ligue 1 survival hopes with a 2-2 draw against Monaco on Sunday, while Saint-Etienne beat Lorient 3-2.
Yannick Ferreira Carrasco scored twice inside the first 10 minutes as Monaco got off to a flying start.
But the home side, who did not really get going until after the break, hit back to ensure a share of the spoils with goals from Cedric Bakambu and Joseph Lopy.
The stalemate means Claudio Ranieri's Monaco slip two points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain.
Saint-Etienne, meanwhile, ended a run of four games without a win with an entertaining 3-2 victory at home to struggling Lorient.
The hosts led 2-0 inside 15 minutes thanks to Brandao's opener and a Benjamin Corgnet strike.
They had chances to go further clear, but instead were pegged back by Yann Jouffre's effort nine minutes before the break.
Max Gradel restored Saint-Etienne's two-goal cushion and, even though Vincent Aboubakar pulled another one back, Lorient could not find a leveller.
Lyon required a last-gasp equaliser from substitute Jimmy Briand to salvage a 1-1 draw against Bordeaux.
Ludovic Obraniak's far-post volley put Les Girondins ahead shortly after the hour mark and Lyon's hopes of avoiding defeat seemed to have ended when Alexandre Lacazette was red-carded five minutes later.
But the hosts stuck to their task and were rewarded in injury-time when Nabil Fekir's shot was parried by Bordeaux goalkeeper Cedric Carasso into the path of Briand and he bundled the ball over the line.
