Lyon and Angers among Ligue 1 winners

Lyon have defeated Nice 2-1 despite being reduced to 10 men for nearly an hour in their French Ligue 1 meeting.

Jeff Reine-Adelaide fired Lyon in front in the 11th minute and Moussa Dembele doubled the hosts' lead from the spot in the 28th after he was tripped by Christophe Herelle.

It appeared as if Lyon's good work would be undone when defender Marcal was sent off six minutes later after accidentally kicking an opponent in the head when going for the ball.

Nice went close on several occasions before Kasper Dolberg pulled one back for the visitors 12 minutes from time.

However, their hopes of getting something from the match diminished when defender Patrick Burner was sent off shortly after for a second yellow card.

Lyon moved up to seventh, three points off a Champions League berth, but they are just two points ahead of 15th-placed Nice on a congested league table.

Surprise packets Angers remained second after they edged last-placed Nimes 1-0 to cut champions Paris Saint-Germain's lead back to nine points.

Angers had numerous opportunities and also hit the post through Baptiste Santamaria before Thomas Mangani scored in the 67th.

Reims and Nantes slipped four points behind Angers after both drew 1-1, at Metz and Brest respectively.

The draw ended a run of four successive league defeats for Nantes.

Elsewhere, Strasbourg scored their first away goals of the season in beating Amiens 4-0.

Dijon came from behind to beat Rennes 2-1 and move a point above the relegation zone.
