Soccer-Lyon slump to shock defeat against Dijon

PARIS, April 6 (Reuters) - Olympique Lyonnais conceded two own goals in an embarrassing 3-1 home defeat against lowly Dijon in Ligue 1 as their hopes of finishing second were dealt a big blow on Saturday.

After Martin Terrier opened the scoring in the first minute, Wesley Said played chief tormentor as he netted the equaliser before two of his shots were converted into own goals by Marcelo and Rafael.

The result left Lyon in third place on 56 points from 31 games, four behind second-placed Lille who travel to Stade de Reims on Sunday.

Dijon, who had picked up only one point in their previous nine league matches, jumped from bottom to 18th on 24 points.

Leaders Paris St Germain, who host Racing Strasbourg also on Sunday, will claim their eighth Ligue 1 title if they win and Lille do not take all three points. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Pritha Sarkar)
