Big-spending Paris Saint-Germain continue to flounder in their quest for the Ligue 1 title, losing 2-1 away at Nice on Saturday to heap more pressure on coach Carlo Ancelotti. League leaders Lyon beat Montpellier to go five points clear at the top.
Big-spending Paris St Germain's title challenge received a jolt when Carlo Ancelotti's team slumped to a 2-1 defeat at mid-table Nice on Saturday to drop five points behind Ligue 1 leaders Olympique Lyon.
Inspired by in-form Clement Grenier, the leaders outclassed Montpellier in the first half and denied them any goal chances.
The 21-year-old playmaker laid on the only goal when he took possession in his own half before setting up Gomis who netted with a powerful effort.
Montpellier, who are down in 13th spot and had scored in their 12 previous away league matches, pushed hard for an equaliser but could not make the breakthrough.
