Lyon's Beauvue thwarts old club Guingamp

Claudio Beauvue came back to haunt his old club Guingamp as he struck a late winner for Lyon in a 1-0 Ligue 1 win on Saturday.

Hubert Fournier's men were frustrated in a goalless draw at home to Lorient in their opener last week, but they put that right thanks to new signing Beauvue, who hit 17 league goals for Guingamp last term.

The striker from the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, who scored for the Brittany-based club in a 3-1 defeat against Lyon in this fixture last season, struck the only goal after 79 minutes to condemn Guingamp to a second straight defeat.

Lyon now have four points from two games, and are in a group of four teams joint second behind leaders Caen, the only side with a maximum six points ahead of Sunday's games when champions Paris Saint-Germain are at home to newly-promoted Corsican minnows Gazelec Ajaccio.

Normandy side Caen continued their perfect start with another 1-0 success, this time at home to Toulouse.

Patrice Garande's men stunned Marseille at the Stade Velodrome on the opening weekend -- a result which prompted Marcelo Bielsa's resignation -- and they got the better of Toulouse thanks to a wonderful 69th-minute header from Damien Da Silva.

"Let's say we're lucky leaders," said Caen coach Patrice Garande.

"The positive point is to have won because for the first 20 minutes we were very poor technically and in our defence. This result demonstrates the dogged spirit of the team."

Serbia defender Uros Spajic was red carded late on to compound the visitors' misery.

Nice threw away a two-goal lead at ten-man Troyes to draw 3-3 in a pulsating game at the Stade de l'Aube.

Claude Puel's men also blew a lead against Monaco in their opening 2-1 loss last weekend.

Newly-promoted Troyes got off to flying start in front of their home fans thanks to Corentin Jean's third-minute opener.

But Nice responded as former Lyon, Marseille and Newcastle winger Hatem Ben Arfa levelled from the penalty spot minutes later.

Alassane Plea turned the game around for the visitors after 16 minutes before the hosts were reduced to ten men after Chris Mavinga's second yellow card on the half hour.

Maxime Le Marchand scored Nice's third before the break and there appeared no way back for Troyes.

Fabien Camus halved the deficit after 77 minutes before Thiago Xavier struck a dramatic leveller in stoppage time to salvage an unlikely draw for last year's Ligue 2 champions.

Montpellier's dismal early season form continued as they suffered their second straight defeat, going down 1-0 at Rennes following an 86th-minute winner from Polish international winger Kamil Grosicki.

Meanwhile, former eight-time French champions Nantes and Angers, who are back in the top flight after a 21-year absence, played out a 0-0 draw.

The result moves both sides on to four points with neither club having conceded a goal in their opening two matches.

Earlier on Saturday, a stoppage-time free-kick by stand-in captain Henri Saivet gave Bordeaux a 1-1 draw with Saint-Etienne at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.

Saint-Etienne looked set for all three points when Fabien Lemoine set up Romain Hamouma to finish after 58 minutes.

The match was in stoppage time when the visitors won a free-kick, and the wall opened up to let Senegal international Saivet's low shot through to ensure a share of the points.
