Auxerre stun Paris SG as Arles-Avignon hold Lyon

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2010-10-24

Paris Saint-Germain squandered a chance to move up the table in France's Ligue 1 as they slumped to a 3-2 home defeat against Auxerre on Sunday. Whilst Marseille moved into second place with a 3-1 win over Lille.

REUTERS - Olympique Lyon failed to boost coach Claude Puel's hopes of keeping his job after they drew 1-1 at bottom club Arles-Avignon in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

Jimmy Briand cancelled out Franck Dja Djedje's opener but the draw will do little to help Puel's cause.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas is set to assess Puel's position at the end of the month with the club, French champions from 2002-08, struggling to make an impact in Ligue 1 despite taking maximum points from three Champions League games.

Lyon are 14th in the standings with 12 points from 10 games, seven points behind leaders Stade Rennes.

Paris St Germain, in sixth, missed the chance to make up ground after slumping to a 3-2 home defeat against AJ Auxerre.

Bordeaux 0, Brest 2
Lens 1, Nice 0
Monaco 0, Valenciennes 2
Nancy 1, Lorient 0
Rennes 0, Montpellier 1
Saint-Etienne 1, Caen 1
Sochaux 1, Toulouse 3

Champions Olympique Marseille visit Lille later on Sunday (1900GMT).

In Avignon, striker Djedje put the home side ahead nine minutes before the break after benefiting from a Pape Diakhate blunder to fire past Hugo Lloris from close range.

Lyon levelled one minute into the second half when French international Briand headed home from a Miralem Pjanic corner.

At the Parc des Princes, hosts PSG got off to a dream start as Nene curled a superb 30-metre strike into the top corner in the opening minute.

But PSG's terrible defending let Auxerre back into contention almost immediately. A bad clearance allowed Jean-Pascal Mignot to collect the ball in the box and fire past Apoula Edel three minutes after Nene's goal.

The visitors went ahead in the 10th minute when Sakha Tiene was outpowered by Dennis Oliech following a through ball from Cedric Hengbart. Poland striker Oliech's cross found Roy Contout in the area for Auxerre's second.

It was 3-1 midway through the first half when Julien Quercia beat the offside trap to slot the ball past Edel.

Nene reduced the arrears from the spot in the 68th.
