Ligue 1: Bordeaux edge seven-goal thriller
PARIS, Dec 2 (Reuters) - Kim Kallstrom scored twice as champions Olympique Lyon opened up a six-point lead at the top of Ligue 1 with a 5-0 demolition of Racing Strasbourg on Sunday.
The Sweden midfielder opened the scoring on 13 minutes after collecting a through ball from Karim Benzema and added Lyon's fifth with 10 minutes remaining from the penalty spot.
Juninho made it 2-0 with a trademark free kick in the 19th minute, France striker Benzema struck his 12th of the season on 65 minutes and defender Francois Clerc scored in the 77th.
Lyon now have 37 points from 16 games, with second-placed Nancy, who slumped to a 2-1 defeat at Le Mans on Saturday, on 31.
The Lorraine side have a game in hand, though, and get the opportunity to cut the deficit to three points when they face Toulouse away on Wednesday.
Strasbourg dropped to 13th on 20 points.
Earlier on Sunday, a late goal by Pierre Ducasse earned Girondins Bordeaux a 4-3 thrilling home victory over Toulouse.
Toulouse looked to have clinched an amazing draw after a Johan Elmander hat-trick hauled them back from 3-0 down to all square - only for midfielder Ducasse to strike three minutes from time.
Sweden striker Elmander netted in the 63rd, from the spot, 72nd and 76th minutes to cancel out Wendel's double and Alou Diarra's goal in the first half.
Ducasse's strike came just after Toulouse had been reduced to 10 men, with Nicolas Dieuze being sent off for a second bookable offence in the 83rd minute.
Bordeaux are third in the standings with 28 points.
Elsewhere, a Gregory Pujol double and a Steve Savidan goal gave Valenciennes a 3-0 victory over Stade Rennes and moved them up to fifth in the standings.
