Nice win to move 3 points clear
Paris: Nice went three points clear at the top of Ligue 1 through Valentin Eysseric’s 1-0 winner against Saint-Etienne. The French midfielder, who spent last season on loan at Saint-Etienne, produced a fine finish from the edge of the penalty area. His goal took Nice three points clear of Monaco, who won 3-0 at Lorient last Friday, and Paris StGermain, who beat Nantes 2-0 at home last Saturday. And it condemned Saint-Etienne to a first home defeat in 10 games. Other results: Guingamp 1-1 Bordeaux, Marseille 1-0 Caen. -BBC .
