Paris Saint-Germain remain in the danger zone

Latest update : 2008-05-03

Paris Saint-Germain's relegation worries continued as they failed to defeat Toulouse (1-1), a direct rival in the relegation battle. Nice held Lyon to a scoreless draw, keeping alive Bordeaux's hopes of winning the title.

Olympique Lyon missed a chance to close in on a seventh consecutive Ligue 1 title when they were held to a goalless draw at mid-table Nice on Saturday.

 

Leaders Lyon now have 73 points, five ahead of second-placed Girondins Bordeaux, with two games left.

 

Six times champions Lyon struck the bar twice before the interval through Juninho and Jeremy Toulalan but failed to score the goal that would have increased the pressure on Bordeaux, who play at third-placed Olympique Marseille on Sunday (1855 GMT).

 

"We lacked motivation and enthusiasm to create danger," Lyon coach Alain Perrin told reporters.

 

"We know Bordeaux can narrow the gap to only two points but we are ready to fight until the last game," he added. In a later game on Saturday, Paris St Germain gave away a late goal at Toulouse who snatched a 1-1 draw when Mohamed Fofana scored two minutes from time in their relegation battle.

 

PSG had taken the lead with a Bernard Mendy goal against the run of play shortly after the hour.

 

PSG, who have leapfrogged Racing Lens to move out of the relegation places, remain level on points with Toulouse, who are above them on goal difference also with 39 points.

 

However, the team from the capital will drop back into the danger zone if Lens, who have 38 points, avoid defeat at home to Monaco later on Saturday.

 

PSG have not been relegated since reaching the top flight in 1974.
