Ligue 1 wrap: Lens leave it late at Toulouse

PARIS, Dec 9 (Reuters) - Racing Lens underlined their ambition to finish runners-up in Ligue 1 by winning 1-0 at Toulouse on Saturday courtesy of a late goal by Issam Jemaa.

Tunisia forward Jemaa slotted home a Razak Boukari cross two minutes into added time to put the northerners on 32 points from 17 games.

Lens hold on to second place and move 11 points behind leaders Olympique Lyon, who will entertain Paris St Germain on Sunday.

The game was largely dull and only came to life in the last five minutes, Jemaa hitting woodwork twice before scoring the winner.

French international striker Djibril Cisse made his first official appearance for Olympique Marseille after a six-month injury layoff and helped them clinch a 2-1 win over Monaco.

Cisse broke his leg during France's last warm-up match for the World Cup in Germany and had not played since in a competitive game.

The powerful number nine, who replaced Toifilou Maoulida on the hour, also nicely set up striker Mamamouda Niang for Marseille's second goal in the 76th.

POPULAR COMBACK

Cisse, widely regarded as the player Marseille need to recover from a string of poor results, received a standing ovation from the Stade Velodrome crowd after their second success in nine league outings.

Mickael Pagis headed home a cross from Taye Taiwo in the 32nd to open the scoring but Monaco hit back through Italian Marco Di Vaio on 57.

Marseille are fifth in the standings while Monaco conceded their first defeat in six matches to slip to 16th, a point above the relegation zone.

Girondins Bordeaux slumped to a clumsy 2-1 home defeat by Stade Rennes which leaves them in a disappointing eighth position.

The Brittany side went in front thanks to Sylvain Marveaux after 10 minutes and striker John Utaka made it 2-0 just after the hour.

Jean-Claude Darcheville pulled one back for the hosts as Bordeaux, surprise winners at PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League this week, conceded their second Ligue 1 defeat in a row.

Sochaux laboured to a goalless draw at Valenciennes to climb to third, ahead of in-form Lille who host St Etienne on Sunday.

Saturday's seven evening matches started 10 minutes late because of a protest led by the referees' union. The referees held up the kickoffs to draw attention to their wage demands.
