Lyon continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 1-1 draw at Bordeaux.French champions Lyon continued their unbeaten start to the season, but they had to come from behind to seal a draw at Bordeaux.
Girdonins have looked impressive themselves so far this term and they took an early lead at The Stade Chaban Delmas as Vladimir Smicer fired home.
Lyon were made to work hard and they levelled the match just after the hour mark when Sylvain Wiltord (pictured) struck.
Le Mans find themselves in second as their great start to the new season continued with a 2-1 win over Sochaux.
Yohann Hautcoeur (30) put Le Mans ahead on 30 minutes, but Ilan levelled for the visitors just after the hour mark.
The winner came just minutes after Sochaux levelled as Vinicius De Melo fired home.
Lille bounced back from the midweek UEFA Champions League defeat with a comprehensive 4-0 defeat of Nice.
Jean Makoun fired Lille ahead after just six minutes and Nice looked to be holding out.
However, Bill Tchato's sending off on the hour marked the end of the visitors resistance as Milenko Acimovic (77), Peter Odemwingie (81) and Daniel Gygax (85) all fired home.
Metz are still without a win, but they will be relatively pleased to have secured a point at fellow strugglers Nancy.
The home side went ahead just two minutes in thanks to Andre Luiz, but Sebastien Renouard (73) rescued a share of the spoils for Nancy.
Nantes find themselves in seventh after a comfortable 2-0 win over Toulouse. Both goals came in the first half courtesy of Mamadou Diallo.
