Pagis bags a hat-trick to help Rennes stun Lyon

Rennes 3 – Lyon 0 (Ligue 1, October 5, 2008) 35-year-old Mickael Pagis bagged a hat-trick to hand Lyon their first defeat of the season. He opened the scoring in the 17th with a low shot from close range, and then tapped in his second in the 56th on a pass from Olivier Thomert. The third though was spectacular, Pagis chested down a long pass and then struck a powerful half-volley past Lloris.

Nancy 1 – PSG 1 (Ligue 1, October 5, 2008) The Parisians got off to the best possible start as Guillaume Hoarau headed them into an early lead. But the hosts dominated for the rest of the first half deservedly equalised shortly after the half hour mark through Damian Macaluso.
