Lyon moved clear at the top of Ligue 1 on Saturday following a 3-1 win against Monaco.

A Juninho penalty after 12 minutes gave Lyon a lead that Anthony Reveillere doubled six minutes later before Sylvain Monsoreau (41) got Monaco back in it.

But Karim Benzema scored just after the break to seal the win and move Lyon three points clear of Nancy, who have two games in hand and play Sochaux on Sunday
