Montpellier win 2-1 at Nancy to go 5th; Bordeaux ease Tigana pressure

Nancy 1 – Montpellier 2 (Ligue 1, January 30, 2011) Nancy needed just two minutes to breach the Montpellier backline as a free-kick eventually fell to Youssouf Hadji at the back post and the attacking midfielder tucked in the opener. The lead lasted just minutes before Souleymane Camara brought Montpellier level, and on the hour Garry Bocaly doubled the visitors lead with what proved to be the match winner.

Bordeaux 2 – Nice 0 (Ligue 1, January 30, 2011) Defender Ludovic Sane scored the opener in the 38th minute, finding the back of the net from a corner at the near post, before Anthony Modeste took advantage of Nice’s passive defense to put his team two-up just before the hour mark.
