Olympique Lyonnais fell two points behind Ligue 1 leaders Paris St Germain after being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Girondins de Bordeaux on Saturday.

Having lost 1-0 to Montpellier last time out, Lyon went in front in the first half through Memphis Depay -- the Dutchman's fourth goal of the season.

However, the hosts' task was made all the more difficult when Thiago Mendes was sent off after a second booking -- Lyon's second red card in as many matches.
