Marseille clinch second place, St Etienne slip in red zone

Latest update : 2009-04-05

St Etienne fell one step closer to relegation after losing 3-0 at home to Marseille. Marseille powered through the second half to finish their 31st day only one point behind leader Lyon. Paris beat Nice, 2-1 to share fifth place with Lille.

Reuters - A Mamadou Niang double earned Olympique Marseille a 3-0 win at strugglers St Etienne on Sunday that left them breathing down Ligue 1 leaders Olympique Lyon's necks.

Senegalese Niang converted a penalty on the hour and put the result beyond doubt with 14 minutes remaining after fellow striker Brandao had doubled the tally on 74 minutes.

Marseille are second in the standings with 58 points, one less than Lyon with eight matches remaining after the champions won 3-1 at Le Mans on Saturday.

The result left St Etienne in 18th place, below the safety line.

Paris St Germain's title hopes remained alive, four points behind Lyon, after goals by Guillaume Hoarau and Sammy Traore gave them a 2-1 home win against Nice.
