LYON UPSET BY RENNES, LOSE GROUND IN RACE FOR SECOND IN LIGUE 1.

PARIS (Reuters) – Olympique Lyonnais lost ground in the race for second place in Ligue 1 when they were upset 2-0 by Stade Rennais at home on Sunday.

Wahbi Khazri struck after five minutes and James Lea Siliki added another in the dying seconds to give the Brittany side their first win after three straight defeats in all competitions.

The result left Lyon in fourth place on 48 points, five points adrift of second-placed Monaco who thrashed Angers 4-0 away on Saturday.

Olympique de Marseille, held 2-2 at St Etienne on Friday, are third on 52 points, 13 behind runaway leaders Paris St Germain who snatched a 1-0 win at Toulouse on Saturday thanks to Neymar.

Rennes’ Khazri made the most of a defensive blunder by Marcelo and beat Anthony Lopes from close range to put the visitors ahead on six minutes.

Lyon dominated possession but Nabil Fekir was being closely monitored by the opposition defence.

The French international forward came close to levelling, however, with 15 minutes from time when his long-range effort shaved the post.

But Rennes doubled their tally three minutes into stoppage time when Lea Siliki was alert to finish after Lopes had parried his first shot back into his path.
