Hoarau rescues point for PSG against Montpellier

Sun 19th, February 2012

Paris, France (Sports Network) - Guillaume Hoarau scored with 2 minutes left in normal time, and PSG tied Montpellier 2-2 on Sunday at the Parc des Princes to hold onto first place in Ligue 1.

Alex fired PSG into the lead late in the first half, but Younes Belhanda tied the match in first-half stoppage time and John Utaka put the visitors in front in the 82nd minute.

With Montpellier poised to avenge an earlier 3-0 home loss to PSG, Hoarau tied the match when he turned a pass from Jeremy Menez into the bottom-left corner from just a few yards out in the 88th.

PSG preserved its eight-game unbeaten streak, and its one-point cushion at the top of the table over second-place Montpellier.

The Paris club took the lead through Alex, who scored his first goal since his transfer from Chelsea last month. He drove a free kick into the top right, but PSG was only in front for a few minutes.

Belhanda directed Hilton's cross into the bottom right in the dying seconds of the opening half, and Montpellier eventually grabbed the lead through Utaka.

Utaka reached a cross from Olivier Giroud, the leading scorer in Ligue 1, and deposited the ball into the upper-left corner. Montpellier was in position to open a two-point lead atop the table, but it could not hold on for the win.

PSG remained undefeated under new coach Carlo Ancelotti, but will have to deal with Montpellier for a little longer, as its lone title rivals still picked up a huge road point.

Bordeaux 1, Lyon 0

Bordeaux, France - Yoan Gouffran scored late in the first half as Bordeaux won its third straight and extended its Ligue 1 unbeaten streak to five games with a 1-0 win over Lyon on Sunday at the Stade Jacques Chaban-Delmas.

Gouffran scored the lone goal off a header to the top-left corner to send Lyon to its seventh road loss in 13 road games this season.

Bordeaux won its sixth at home against six draws and just one loss and climbed to within three points of a place in the top four in a jam-packed top half on 36 points, although it's ninth.

Lyon, which lost for the second time in a row and for a third time in its last five, is fifth and level on 39 points with Marseille, St Etienne and Rennes.

St Etienne 4, Rennes 0

Saint Etienne, France - Jean-Pascal Mignot, Laurent Batlles, Bakary Sako, and Max-Alain Gradel scored as St Etienne rolled to a 4-0 win over Rennes in Ligue 1 on Sunday at the Stade Geoffrey-Guichard.

Mignot opened the scoring in the 24th minute, and St Etienne added three more in the second half to win for the third time in its last four matches.

St Etienne climbed even on 39 points with Marseille, Lyon and Rennes, but sits behind Marseille and Lyon on goal differential in sixth. Rennes is seventh.
