WEAKENED LYON SLUMP TO DEFEAT AT LORIENT
LYON missed the chance to move level on points with stumbling champions Paris SaintGermain in Ligue 1 yesterday after losing 1-0 at struggling Lorient. Jimmy Cabot scored the only goal of the game early in the second half in Brittany as Lyon lost for the third time in the league already this season. Bruno Genesio’s side, who visit Sevilla in the Champions League this midweek, had beaten Montpellier 5-1 on Wednesday but that is now their only win in five Ligue 1 games. They lie seventh in the table while Lorient are off the bottom after what was just their second win of the campaign. Champions PSG slumped to a 2-0 defeat at Toulouse on Friday with Yann Bodiger scoring a penalty and Jimmy Durmaz also netting for the hosts after Serge Aurier had been sent off for the team from the capital. Toulouse are level on points with leaders Nice, who visit Nancy later, with Paris a point behind in third.
