French footbal club Nice missed a chance to restore their three-point lead at the top of Ligue 1 as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Bastia.

The draw cut Nice's lead to one point after all 14 rounds of matches so far this season. Second-placed Monaco, who thrashed Marseille 4-0 on Friday, are now just above thir positioned Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) on goal difference.

Also on Sunday, defending champions PSG extended their unbeaten Ligue 1 run to seven matches with a 2-1 victory at Lyon.

Edinson Cavani, the league's top scorer with 13 goals from 12 appearances, scored both goals for Unai Emery's side, as Mathieu Valbuena levelled for Lyon.

Cavani now has 18 goals from all competitions this season.

Saint-Etienne rallied past Angers 2-1 to end a four-match winless streak.
