Ligue 1 results – Monaco win Montpellier; PSG stay close

​Caen 0 – 4 Bordeaux

Montpellier 1 – 2 Monaco

Paris Saint Germain 2 – 1 Lille

Paris St-Germain kept up the pressure on Monaco at the top of Ligue 1 thanks to Lucas Moura’s disputed injury-time goal.
Moura appeared to be offside before turning the ball home from close range.

Edinson Cavani had headed them into the lead before a late equaliser from Nicolas de Preville, who was gifted the ball by PSG keeper Alphonse Areola.

The champions remain three points behind leaders Monaco.

Monaco remained top after beating Montpellier 2-1, but PSG’s victory kept the margin at three.

Kamil Glik’s opened scoring for the visitors when he headed home for his fourth goal this season.

Kylian Mbappe-Lottin continued to live up to the hype that Arsene Wenger has heaped on him, as the 18-year-old forward showed his speed and skills to score Monaco’s second goal – his seventh goal- in the 20th minute.

Wenger recently said he could see similarities between Mbappe and Thierry Henry, who also played for Monaco when he was young.

Montpellier captain Vitorino Hilton hauled his team back into the game soon after the interval with a header at the near post from Ryad Boudebouz’s corner, making for a tense finish.

Montpellier pushed for an equaliser in the last 15 minutes, missing a golden opportunity in added time when substitute Souleymane Camara sent a header off the crossbar.

Monaco finished with 10 men following Jemerson’s dismissal for a late tackle on Boudebouz with two minutes left.

Forward Francois Kamano scored twice as Bordeaux showed clinical efficiency in their 4-0 victory at Caen.
Bordeaux converted all four chances and moved into sixth in the standings, 19 points behind Monaco.

Diego Rolan put the visitors in front in the 11th minute after taking advantage of a blunder from Jordan Leborgne. The 21-year-old Caen midfielder completely mis-hit the ball as he tried to pass back to his goalkeeper. The Uruguayan striker intercepted the ball, ran down half the pitch and came out on top of his duel with keeper Remy Vercoutre from a tight angle.

Vercoutre was at fault 11 minutes later when Kamano made it 2-0 with a curled shot from the edge of the area. The ball bounced just in front of Vercoutre, who reacted too slowly and scuffed his clearance into the net.

Kamano doubled his tally in the 63rd minute with a neat finish after dribbling past two Caen players and Jaroslav Plasil completed the rout with a last-minute goal.
