Bordeaux beat Monaco to go top of Ligue 1

PARIS, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Girondins Bordeaux beat Monaco 2-1 on Saturday to knock the visitors off the top of Ligue 1.

Morocco striker Marouane Chamakh opened the scoring from close range on 64 minutes and Brazilian midfielder Wendel doubled the home side's advantage from a swift counter-attack 11 minutes later.

Brazilian midfielder Nene, who has just joined Monaco from Celta Vigo, reduced the arrears with an angled free kick in the last minute.

Bordeaux, now coached by former France defender Laurent Blanc, head the standings on 14 points from seven matches.

Monaco, whose coach, Ricardo, joined from Bordeaux during the close season, are one point back, level on 13 points with Nancy and Valenciennes, both in action later on Saturday.

Champions Olympique Lyon recovered from two goals down to beat Le Mans 3-2 and move up to fifth in the Ligue 1 standings.

Lyon, chasing a seventh successive title, were 2-0 down with 20 minutes left after midfielder Stephane Sessegnon scored twice for visitors Le Mans.

The home side fought back with three goals within seven minutes from France forwards Sidney Govou and Karim Benzema and Czech striker Milan Baros.

Recovering from a dismal start, Lyon have won their last three games and are now four points behind surprise leaders Nancy.

Nancy, the only side still unbeaten, extended their unbeaten run with a 2-0 home victory over St Etienne courtesy of a goal in each half from Brazilian Kim and fellow forward Marc-Antoine Fortune. They are two points ahead of two teams, Valenciennes and Girondins Bordeaux.

Valenciennes drew 0-0 with promoted Metz.
