Ligue 1 goals: Bordeaux move up to third; Monaco edge Toulouse in a 5-goal thriller

Bordeaux 2 – Nice 1 (Ligue 1, March 14, 2009) Marouane Chamakh put Bordeaux in front only for Habib Bamogo to pull Nice level from the spot. Carlos Henrique’s header ealy in the second gave the hosts the points.

Monaco 3 – Toulouse 2 (Ligue 1, March 14, 2009) Toulouse took the lead at the Stade Louis II through Andre-Pierre Gignac but Monaco made sure it was level at the break thanks to Frederic Nimani. Toulouse were again ahead when Mauro Cetto pounced just after the hour but again they could not hang onto the lead as Francois-Joseph Modesto levelled. Then, in injury time, the Principality side won it through Igor Lolo.

Sochaux 2 – Nancy 1 (Ligue 1, March 14, 2009) Ryad Boudebouz fired the hosts ahead with a shot that bypassed an unsighted Bracigliano in goal. Youssouf Hadji drew Nancy level with a scruffy deflected shot, but Sochaux took the points after Vaclav Sverkos swept home a second half winner.

Valenciennes 3 – Le Havre 2 (Ligue 1, March 14, 2009) The visitors went ahead through Peter Franquart but goals from Jose Saez and Jonathan Lacourt gave Valenciennes the lead. Kevin Anin then looked to have given Le Havre a point when he scored ten minutes from time, but in injury time Johan Audel won it for Valenciennes.

Nantes 1 – Lorient 1 (Ligue 1, March 14, 2009) Guirane Ndaw gave Nantes the lead after 25 minutes and it looked like being the home side’s day when Lorient missed a second-half penalty. But Jeremy Morel fired a superb equaliser from 20-yards after 77 minutes to earn the visitors a share of the points.

Caen 0 – Lille 1 (Ligue 1, March 14, 2009) Lille climbed above Rennes into fifth, the winner came on the hour with Michel Bastos grabbing the goal.

Le Mans 2 – Rennes 2 (Ligue 1, March 14, 2009) Thorstein Helstad and Gervinho had put the hosts in the driving seat, but Rennes turned the match around in the second half and Kembo Ekoko reduced arrears before Moussa Sow rescued a draw in stoppage time.
