Ligue 1: Lyon held, Girondins on fire
PARIS, Sept 23 (Reuters) - Olympique Lyon failed to make up for last week's Champions League setback when they were held to a 1-1 home draw by Lille in Ligue 1 on Sunday. The six-times French champions, who were thrashed 3-0 in Barcelona on Wednesday, fell behind after 17 minutes when Lille defender Michel Bastos volleyed home from 20 metres. The hosts stepped up a gear after the interval and were rewarded just before the hour-mark when striker Sidney Govou, set up by Abdulkader Keita, beat Tony Sylva with a low shot. Lyon, who have a game in hand, are fourth in the table with 16 points from eight matches. Lille are 14th on 10 points after drawing seven of their nine games this season. Earlier on Sunday, Girondins Bordeaux moved up to second with a 2-0 victory at Paris St Germain. Bordeaux went ahead on 10 minutes courtesy of a Johan Micoud goal and sealed victory two minutes into the second half when former Manchester United striker David Bellion netted his sixth league goal of the season. Bordeaux, now managed by 1998 World Cup winner Laurent Blanc, are one point behind leaders Nancy with 18 points from nine matches. Paris St Germain's poor home form continued, with the capital club now having lost two games and drawn three at the Parc des Princes. They are 13th in the table on 11 points. Stade Rennes slipped to sixth after slumping to a 2-0 defeat at home to Sochaux. The visitors opened the scoring with a Stephane Dalmat volley from just inside the box before wrapping up the win in the 58th minute through Mickael Isabey. Victory moved Sochaux out of the relegation zone and up to 17th on nine points. Leaders Nancy, who have a game in hand, beat Lorient 2-0 on Saturday.
