Berbatov wins it for Monaco against Lille

Paris, Jan 25 (IANS) A Dimitar Berbatov header helped Monaco beat Lille 1-0, while Bordeaux were held 0-0 by Bastia in the French Ligue 1.

Bulgarian veteran Berbatov, who turns 34 next week, netted a free-kick from Yannick Ferreira-Carrasco in the 57th minute Saturday night, reports Xinhua.

Joao Moutinho also missed two good chances in what was a dominant display from the visitors.

With the 1-0 away victory, Monaco confirmed their fifth position in Ligue 1 and kept up the pressure on fourth-placed Saint-Etienne who are one point ahead.

Bordeaux were unable to make the most of a 62nd minute red card to Yannick Cahuzac as they drew 0-0 at Bastia and stay in seventh place.

Guingamp held on for a 3-2 victory over Lorient despite being reduced to 10 men in the 80th minute, thanks to a brace from Claudio Beauvue.

Montpellier eased to a 4-0 victory over Nantes with goals from Paul Bastien Lasne, Kevin Berigaud, Anthony Mounier and Lucas Barrios.
