Lyon:

Olympique Lyonnais remain 11 points clear at the top of the French Ligue 1 following a 2-0 win over Paris St. Germain on Saturday. Sidney Govou's sorcery led to a corner from which the Brazilian striker Fred gave the hosts a fifth-minute lead over PSG. Govou certainly isn't the only one in this side with some breathtaking moves. Juninho's wonderful skills and exquisite finish fully merited a goal. Instead, it required the slightly more orthodox John Carew effort three minutes into injury time to seal the points. It finished 2-0 to Gerard Houllier's men - second-placed Auxerre also won on Saturday - keeping the champions a mere 11 points clear. A fifth consecutive French title is looking more and more like a formality. (AP)
