Ligue 1: Bordeaux close Lyon's lead to four points

BORDEAUX, France, April 13 (Reuters) - Argentine forward Fernando Cavenaghi struck twice to give Girondins Bordeaux a 2-1 win over Caen 2-1 on Sunday that closed the gap on Ligue 1 leaders Olympique Lyon to four points.

Cavenaghi deflected in a free kick by Brazilian midfielder Wendel to give Bordeaux a 52nd minute lead before converting a 77th minute penalty after Caen defender Nicolas Seube handled the ball in the area.

Defender Jeremy Sorbon reduced the arrears for the visitors with a volley from close range a minute from time.

Second-placed Bordeaux, who were thrashed 5-0 at Caen earlier this season, moved on to 64 points from 33 games, four behind Lyon, with five matches left.

Lyon, chasing a seventh consecutive title, were held to a 1-1 home draw by Stade Rennes on Saturday.

In Sunday's late game Nice staged a dramatic comeback to beat PSG in the Parc des Princes.

Bakari Koné gave the visitors a 36th minute lead before Pegguy Luyindula and Pauleta put PSG in front - a lead they held until seven minutes from time.

Koné grabbed his second to level things up before Honorato Ederson struck just three minutes later to seal the points for Nice.
