FC Sochaux defeated Olympique Lyonnais to gain the vital three points needed to edge them away from the Ligue 1 relegation zone.
Olympique Lyonnais were surprisingly overcome by FC Sochaux at home in Ligue 1, denting their very slim chances of overtaking Paris Saint-Germain to claim this season’s title.
The home side were lacklustre throughout, and their finishing wayward.
Of the twenty shots Lyon had in the ninety minutes, only four were on target.
One of those was the penalty kick scored by Bafetimbi Gomis, either side of Sochaux goals from Giovanni Sio and Cedric Bakambu.
With Bakambu’s goal coming just a minute before the end, the visiting fans were sent into raptures. Sochaux won the vital three points they required to gain ground on the other contenders for the drop.
