Monaco 0-0 Lyon

Dimitar Berbatov
Dimitar Berbatov was unable to add to his tally of 13 goals for Monaco.

Lyon were left to rue the loss of injured striker Alexandre Lacazette as they were held to a draw in Monaco.

The improving hosts made it eight straight league clean sheets as Lyon's lead at the top of Ligue 1 was cut to just two points.

Dimitar Berbatov could have won it for Monaco but his first-half header from Fabinho's cross hit the bar.

There was no way through for Lyon despite Nabil Fekir shooting wide from Yoann Gourcuff's pass after the break.

Lacazette, who has 24 goals in 24 games this season, is out for three weeks with a thigh injury.

Elsewhere Julien Feret's fine solo effort in the first half gave improving Caen a third straight win as they surprised fourth-placed St Etienne.

Bordeaux and Guingamp remain in mid-table after a 1-1 draw.
