REUTERS - Two headers by Marouane Chamakh led champions Girondins Bordeaux to a 3-2 win at Sochaux in Ligue 1 on Saturday. The unsettled Morocco striker, who is being chased by several English Premier League sides, also netted in a 4-1 victory over Racing Lens last weekend.
Chamakh, 25, opened the scoring against Sochaux after 31 minutes before making it 3-1 with 10 minutes to go, each time
from a corner.
Both Sochaux goals came from forward Charlie Davies, the second in added time.
Olympique Lyon, who had started the season with a 2-2 draw at Le Mans, bounced back with a 1-0 home win over Valenciennes thanks to a goal from new signing Bafetimbi Gomis.
Nancy went top of the table after a 4-0 thrashing of Monaco featuring two goals by Cameroon forward Paul Alo'o Efoulou.
Bordeaux and Nancy are the only teams with maximum points from two games.
They could be joined on Sunday by Olympique Marseille, who host Lille at Montpellier because their Velodrome stadium is
unavailable after a stage built for a Madonna concert collapsed last month.
