Monaco move above Angers into second place in Ligue 1
Second-half goals from Thomas Lemar and Joao Moutinho saw Monaco move up to second place in Ligue 1 with a 2-0 win at Lorient.
Leonardo Jardim's men leapfrogged Angers -- who lost on Friday night -- to sit only behind unbeaten runaway leaders Paris Saint-Germain.
Benjamin Jeannot caused Monaco problems in the first half but Lemar broke the deadlock in the 53rd minute when his shot hit the crossbar and bounced down just over the line.
And five minutes later Monaco sealed victory when Moutinho delivered a dipping free-kick which beat Lorient keeper Benamin Lecomte.
Marseille moved into the top half of the table with an entertaining 3-1 win at Caen.
Michy Batshuayi gave the visitors an early lead which Georges-Kevin N'Koudou doubled when he fired home on the hour.
Ronny Rodelin reduced the deficit for Caen before Bouna Sarr's powerful volley sealed the points for Marseille.
Alexander Soderlund struck a late winner as St Etienne returned to form with a hard-fought 1-0 win over bitter rivals Lyon at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.
Soderlund fired the only goal of the game in the 76th minute as the home side rode their luck to secure only their second win in their last six Ligue 1 matches.
