PSG 1 – Lyon 0 (Ligue 1, November 22, 2008) Ludovic Giuly netted the only goal midway through the first half and PSG held on to move into the top five. Lyon had Juninho dismissed in the closing stages.
Bordeaux 1 – Rennes 1 (Ligue 1, November 22, 2008) Bordeaux keeper Valverde gifted Rennes the opener, hitting am attempted volleyed-clearance straight into Thomert who had the simply job of scoring into an empty net. On the hour mark Rennes suffered their own defensive meltdown with Yoann Gourcuff slipping home the equaliser.
St. Etienne 0 – Nice 1 (Ligue 1, November 22, 2008) Relegation-doomed St. Etienne fell behind to Nice when Oliver Echouafni was given too much space from a corner to head home.
Valenciennes 2 – Sochaux 2 (Ligue 1, November 22, 2008) Incredibly bad Valenciennes defending presented Erdinc with a goal-scoring opportunity on a silver platter which the striker gobbled up. Just after the hour mark the hosts levelled, Sochaux failed to clear their lines and were embarrassed when Saez’s volley went through a clutter of players before rolling through the keeper’s legs. The turnaround was complete when more disorganised defending was punished by Audel, only for Sloan Privat to pop up for the visitors four minutes from time.
Caen 1 – Auxerre 0 (Ligue 1, November 22, 2008) Reynald Lemaitre headed Caen in the lead over under-perming Auxerre.
Lorient 1 – Toulouse 0 (Ligue 1, November 22, 2008) Kevin Gameiro’s second half goal settled the match.
