PARIS -- Monaco won 2-0 away to Toulouse in the French league on Sunday to keep up the pressure on leader Paris Saint-Germain ahead of its home match against Nantes. cheap jerseys china
. Left back Layvin Kurzawa put Monaco ahead in the 36th minute with a low shot after being set up by midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia, sweeping the ball in after running onto Kondogbias cross from the left. Lucas Ocampos came off the bench to add a second with a spectacular bicycle kick in the 88th. The Argentine winger replaced Colombia forward Radamel Falcao, after he missed three chances. Falcao has only scored once in his past five games for Monaco and appears short of form. The win moved Monaco provisionally two points behind PSG. "Toulouse had two or three chances but after that we played better and it was a good performance from us," Monaco coach Claudio Ranieri said. "Its an important three points for us and it helps us get back on track." Earlier, resurgent Lyon extended its unbeaten run to 10 games in all competitions after securing a 2-0 win at Reims. Goals from striker Alexandre Lacazette and midfielder Gueida Fofana moved the seven-time French champion up to eighth place. "Its a good win for us and the team played well collectively. It was a good performance on several levels," Lyon coach Remi Garde said. "We had a bit of luck because they hit the woodwork, but so did we for that matter. Its always pleasing not to concede any goals." Lacazette took his league goal tally for the season to 10 after turning in left back Henri Bedimos cross to give Lyon the lead in the 25th. "Weve started the year well," Lacazette said. "A while ago we might not have won this match." Midfielder Yoann Gourcuff went close with a 30-meter freekick and striker Bafetimbi Gomis had a late effort saved. Fofana wrapped up the win with a fine finish in the 84th after being set up by captain Maxime Gonalons. The only downside for Lyon was a dislocated shoulder for defender Miguel Lopes. He landed heavily following an aerial challenge and was replaced by Mehdi Zeffane midway through the second half. cheap nfl jerseys china

He doesnt need to win the race to claim a bigger prize. With a massive 90-point lead over Ferraris Fernando Alonso in the drivers standings, the German needs only to finish fifth or better to claim a fourth successive world championship title and become the third man to achieve the feat, joining Formula One greats Juan Manuel Fangio and Michael Schumacher. "Obviously its looking pretty good, but we focus on the job we have this weekend which is to get the maximum both for the race and for the championship," a relaxed Vettel said Thursday. Vettel dashed Alonsos hopes of challenging for the title when he won the previous GP at Suzuka, Japan — his fifth straight win and ninth of the season. He can now cap his season of dominance by sealing the drivers title in India with four races remaining. "For sure its nice to have the opportunity," Vettel said. "Im not trying to focus on that, Im trying to focus on the race and Ive said many times the most important thing for us and myself is to win the championship. It doesnt really matter where and when." Vettel and Red Bull have dominated the 5.125-kilometre (3.184-mile) Buddh International Circuit since the first Indian GP in 2011, winning both previous races from pole position and leading every lap. Despite his obvious affinity with the track, Vettel says he feels no pressure to win the title here. Its not one of the things you want to get out of the way. It should be a very positive thing," he said. "Obviouslly were in a great position with a good gap in the points table, but I dont come here thinking I have to do this or have to do that. cheap jerseys from china
. I didnt do that the last three years." A resigned Alonso said Vettels only problem was deciding where he wanted to claim the title. "If Sebastian wins here or in Abu Dhabi, its more a problem for him," he said. "Depends when he wants to celebrate, which is the best country to celebrate." The only other driver apart from Vettel to record podium finishes at both Indian GPs is Alonso, who was third in 2011 and second last year. A two-time world champion, Alsonso said he doesnt need to be driving for a title to be motivated to finish well. "Motivation is always 100 per cent and you want to do well," the Spaniard said. "So for the rest of the year we will try to help the team to get the goal of second place in the constructors championship, try to score as many points as possible and get some podiums if I can." Mark Webber, who won pole position at Japan, is hungry for another win over his Red Bull teammate before leaving F1 at the end of the season, while Kimi Raikkonen and Lotus teammate Romain Grosjean have been building a sustained charge throughout the second half of the season, despite some poor showing in qualifying. Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg, with two wins this season, is also a danger. "Im sure its going to be a tough weekend," Vettel said. "I think we have reason to believe the car will be competitive, so were in good shape, but Im sure the others will try and push us very hard." cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys
