Danilo heads the late winner
Paris Saint-Germain had Danilo Pereira to thank as they edged out Lorient 2-1 at the Stade du Moustoir.
Neymar took advantage of some poor defending to fire the reigning champions in front (8') but Lorient hit back eight minutes after the break through Terem Moffi. Just as it looked as though Lorient would claim a point, Danilo popped up to head home the winner (81') to preserve PSG's unbeaten record.
"My players knew how to get the job done," said PSG boss Christophe Galtier whose side are set to find out their Champions League Round of 16 opponents on Monday afternoon. "I think we played very well in the first half and put pressure on Lorient. That's how we scored. That's how we created many situations. The players' bodies are under a lot of pressure at the moment. As much as we were proactive in the first half, we were reactive in the second."
Lens stay on track
A goal in each half helped Lens win their fourth game in a row after a 2-1 win at Angers.
Wesley Saïd's close-range finish (21') put Lens in front and they later extended their lead through Facundo Medina (51'). Angers hit back through a Miha Blazic header (87') but Lens held on for another valuable three points.
Marseille edge Olympico
Marseille bounced back from European disappointment midweek to beat Lyon 1-0 at the Orange Velodrome.
Samuel Gigot scored the winner on the stroke of halftime to lift Igor Tudor's side up to fourth on the table.
Rennes snatch point
Rennes came from behind to snatch a point in a 1-1 draw at LOSC.
Jose Fonte prodded home to open the scoring for LOSC (16') but Benjamin Bourigeaud fired Bruno Génésio's side level from the penalty spot (58') to earn his side a valuable point.
"We were closer to 3-0 than 2-1," said Lens coach Franck Haise. "It would have been nice to have got the third goal but even without it, we had control and Angers were unable to knock us off our stride. We're high up in the table after 14 games, I hope we will be there after the 38th game."
