However, second half substitute Govou fired home with 14 minutes left to give Gerard Houllier's men a share of the spoils.
Bordeaux missed the chance to move second after they were held to a 1-1 draw at St Etienne.

Herita Ilunga put Les Verts ahead in the very first minute, but Julien Faubert levelled on 74 minutes for Bordeaux.
Lille took advantage of the stalemate at The Geoffrey Guichard and moved above St Etienne into fifth thanks to their 1-0 win over Nancy.
Hicham Aboucherouane's goal on 54 minutes was enough for Lille.
Sochaux grabbed maximum spoils over Rennes thanks to Benjamin Genghini's goal in the final minute.

Daniel Moreira (16), Jeremy Mathieu (59) and Alexandre Bonnet (90) fired Toulouse to their success.
