10-man PSG rally to beat Marseille
Ten-man Paris Saint-Germain rallied past Marseille 2-1 on Sunday -- in a match featuring two controversial penalties -- to go level on points with leader Monaco in Ligue 1.
PSG midfielder Thiago Motta was sent off in the 30th minute for kicking Mathieu Valbuena while attempting to clear the ball, and Marseille winger Andre Ayew converted the subsequent penalty.
But Maxwell beat Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda to the ball on the stroke of half-time to head in a cross from Gregory Van der Wiel for the equaliser.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic then scored the winner from the penalty spot by sending Mandanda the wrong way in the 65th minute after Andre Ayew had tripped PSG defender Marquinhos.
Lyon's poor start to the season continued with a 5-1 loss at Montpellier.
Victor Hugo Montano opened the scoring for the hosts in the 17th and Anthony Mounier doubled the lead by heading home a corner from Remy Cabella on the stroke of half-time.
Alexandre Lacazette pulled one back for Lyon with a long-range strike in the 48th minute, but Remy Cabella converted a penalty in the 60th to make it 3-1 after Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes had brought Montano down.
Cabella slipped the ball past Lopes in the 66th and Montano headed in Cabella's cross in the 68th to round off the scoring.
Lyon midfielder Maxime Gonalons was sent off in the 82nd after picking up a second yellow card.
Bordeaux moved three points clear of the relegation zone by thrashing Sochaux 4-1.
Roy Contout put Sochaux ahead by slamming the ball under the bar in the 17th. But Bordeaux forward Henri Saivet equalized from the penalty spot in the 21st after Sochaux goalkeeper Simon Pouplin had fouled Cheick Diabate.
Jussie headed in a cross from Mariano to give Bordeaux a 2-1 lead. Diabate sealed the win with a low strike in the 70th and a chip in the 89th.
