Lyon extends lead in French Ligue 1

Oct 29, 2006 - 10:50 PM PARIS (Ticker) - Unbeaten Lyon continue to run away with proceedings in Ligue 1 with a 1-0 win over Nancy on Sunday complemented by Marseille's defeat at Nice.

A 13th-minute strike from Norwegian international John Carew proved enough for Les Gones against their third-placed opponents, as they stretched their lead at the top of the standings to 11 points.

Marseille remain a distant second after a last-minute penalty from Ederson earned Nice a 2-1 victory at the Stade du Ray.

The home side had taken the lead after 25 minutes through Cyril Rool, but Mickael Pagis brought Marseille level in the 61st minute.

No one has shouted yet.
Be the first!
