Defeat for champions Lille

Lille's stuttering start to the new Ligue 1 campaign continued as last season's champions lost 1-0 at home to Montpellier on Sunday evening.

• Saturday's Ligue 1 review

Rudi Garcia's side were held to a 1-1 draw against Nancy on the opening weekend and a second-half strike from Olivier Giroud was enough for Montpellier to inflict a defeat on the double winners.

In contrast, the victory for Montpellier means they have won their opening two games of the new season following last weekend's impressive 3-1 win against Auxerre.

Auxerre recovered from a 2-0 half-time deficit to salvage a point from their home clash with Marseille.

Marseille looked on course for the win as goals at either end of the first half from Loic Remy and Andre Ayew put them in charge at the break.

However, Auxerre netted almost immediately after the restart through Alain Traore to get back into the contest and Roy Contout's equaliser eight minutes from full-time saw the hosts claim a draw.

A second-half goal by Saber Khelifa guided Evian to their first ever win in Ligue 1 as they edged out Nice 1-0.

Bernard Casoni's side were promoted for the second successive season at the end of the last campaign when they were Ligue 2 champions.

Evian had drawn their first match in the top flight last week against Brest but on Sunday Khelifa's effort ensured they took all three points.
