Ederson penalty sends Lyon five points clear

PARIS, Sept 20 (Reuters) - A penalty by Ederson gave Olympique Lyon a 1-0 win at Le Havre in Ligue 1 on Saturday and sent the seven times champions five points clear at the top.

Brazilian midfielder Ederson converted the spot-kick just before the break after forward Frederic Piquionne was brought down in the box by Le Havre defender Nicolas Gilet.

Lyon, chasing an eighth consecutive title, played the last 25 minutes with 10 men after forward Sidney Govou was sent off for a second booking.

That did not stop them moving to 16 points from six matches, five points ahead of Olympique Marseille, who are second and host Monaco on Sunday, and third-placed Toulouse who beat Sochaux 2-1 with goals from striker Andre-Pierre Gignac.

"It was tough, as we knew it would be, but we put up a brave fight for the third time this week," said Lyon coach Claude Puel, whose team recovered from two goals down to beat Nice 3-2 last weekend and to draw 2-2 with Fiorentina in the Champions League on Wednesday.

"Congratulations to my players who showed once again they had courage as well as quality," Puel added.

Le Mans and Nice were fourth and fifth respectively, both on 10 points, after drawing 2-2 in Nice in Saturday's late game.

Girondins Bordeaux moved up to sixth place, level on points with Le Mans and Nice, by winning 1-0 at Grenoble in a tense affair featuring three red cards.

Bordeaux, who bounced back four days after a 4-0 Champions League thrashing by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, played most of the second half with nine men.

Midfielder Alou Diarra was the first to leave, for a second booking after 49 minutes, and Brazilian midfielder Wendel followed him off for a dangerous tackle five minutes later.

Substitute forward Jussie gave the visitors victory from a counter-attack 10 minutes from time. Grenoble then had midfielder Martial Robin sent off for dangerous play with a few seconds remaining.

Two goals from Mali striker Mamadou Bagayoko gave promoted Nantes a 2-0 home victory over Valenciennes. The eight times champions climbed two spots from bottom to 18th after their first win this season.
