Lyon:

Olympique Lyonnais clinched their fourth Ligue 1 title in succession on Sunday, following a 2-1 win over AC Ajaccio at the Stade Gerland. Goals in each half from Sidney Govou and Brazilian skipper Claudio Cacapa secured their 20th win of the season and an unassailable 11-point lead in the standings with three matches remaining. Paul Le Guen's side now join Paris St. Germain and Marseilles in the elite of French football as the only sides to have won Le Championnat four times in a row. Yohan Demont's 51st minute equaliser was not enough to prevent Ajaccio losing their twelfth game of the campaign and the Corsican outfit remain 16th, just one point above the relegation zone. (AP)
