Lyon slip up in rain as OM win again

- +

Marseille continued their excellent start to the Ligue 1 season on Saturday with a hard-earned win at Valenciennes, but Lyon completed a miserable week by suffering a shock home loss to Reims. 

Lyon's Portuguese defender Miguel Lopes (L) fights for the ball with Reims' forward Eliran Atar (R) during the French L1 football match Olympique Lyonnais (OL) vs Reims (SRFC) on August 24, 2013, at the Gerland Stadium in Lyon, central-eastern France. Lyon completed a miserable week by suffering a shock 1-0 home loss to Reims.

A late goal from Andre-Pierre Gignac gave OM a 1-0 win in France's far north before Lyon lost to Reims by the same scoreline at the Stade de Gerland in a game interrupted for more than half an hour by torrential rain and which saw the hosts miss a second-half penalty.
