Lyon keep their Ligue 1 title hopes alive with a late 2-1 win at Montpellier.

Lyon have kept their Ligue 1 title hopes alive with a late 2-1 win at Montpellier.

The result at the Stade de la Mosson has lifted Remi Garde's side to within eight points of leaders Paris Saint-Germain with five games to play.

The visitors took the lead in the 29th minute when Lisandro Lopez finished a counter-attack by heading in Yoann Gourcuff's cross.

Montpellier grabbed an equaliser five minutes before the break as Younes Belhanda found the bottom corner through a crowd of bodies.

However, the away team snatched the victory in the first minute of injury time thanks to Clement Grenier's powerful drive from the edge of the area.
