Lyon risk seeing their lead at the top of Ligue 1 cut to one point after Tulio De Melo scored the only goal in a 1-0 win for Le Mans.

Les Manceaux squeezed to a 1-0 victory against Les Gones in the Coupe de la Ligue quarter-finals in January and they repeated that exploit again, Brazilian striker De Melo forcing home the winner in the 71st minute for his 11th goal of the campaign.

Lyon hardly threatened all match and they could see second-placed Bordeaux narrow the gap to a point if they win at Monaco on Sunday.
