PARIS---Forward Claudio Beauvue
came off the bench to score against
his former club as Lyon earned a hard-
fought 1-0 win away to Guingamp in
the French league yesterday.
Lyon signed Beauvue from Guingamp
in the offseason after he scored 17 league
goals last term, many of those playing
as a winger. He pounced in the 79th
minute with a looping header from
midfielder Jordan Ferri s right-wing
"We didn t give up. I m pleased for
the team," Beauvue said. "We know we
still have some work to do."
Lyon boasted its heralded strike duo
of Alexandre Lacazette and Nabil Fekir
---who scored 40 league goals between
them last season---and new signing
Mathieu Valbuena, but none of them
threatened much, although Fekir went
close with a curling free kick midway
through the first half.
The win gives Lyon four points, two
less than provisional leader Caen, which
sealed a second straight win after beat-
ing Toulouse 1-0 at home thanks to a
70th minute goal from center half
Damien Da Silva.
Toulouse striker Wissam Ben Yedder
hit the crossbar with a firm header just
seconds from the end.
Also yesterday, Saint-Etienne s poor
record against Bordeaux continued as
it conceded a last-minute goal to draw
1-1. Winger Romain Hamouma gave
Saint-Etienne the lead in the 58th
minute, only for Bordeaux forward
Henri Saivet to score from a free kick.
The draw means Saint-Etienne has
now won only three of its past 24
matches against Bordeaux.
The home side improved in the sec-
ond half and, after striker Nolan Roux
went close with a back heel, Hamouma
scored with a low shot from the left
side of the penalty area.
But Saivet found a gap in the defen-
sive wall and curled in a free kick.
Elsewhere, Polish striker Kamil
Grosicki scored his first goal for Rennes
as the Brittany side beat last-place
Montpellier 1-0, and 10-man Troyes
clawed back from 3-1 down to secure
a 3-3 home draw against Nice.
Troyes took the lead through striker
Correntin Jean s second-minute goal,
but former France winger Hatem Ben
Arfa equalized and striker Alassane Plea
made it 2-1 after 15 minutes.
Then, after Troyes center-half Chris
Mavinga was sent off for a second yel-
low card in the 30th, defender Maxime
Le Marchand made it 3-1 close to half-
time. But Troyes roared back thanks
to goals from midfielder Fabien Camus
and then midfielder Xavier Thiago lev-
eled in the 90th.
In yesterday s other match, Angers
drew 0-0 at home to Nantes.

elec Ajaccio and troubled Marseille ---

Bielsea s shock resignation moments
after last weekend s opening game ---

LISBON---Former Real Madrid goal-
keeper Iker Casillas kept a clean sheet
in his Portuguese league debut yes-
terday, when FC Porto beat Guimaraes
3-0 to start its season.
Cameroon striker Vincent Aboubakar
struck his first of two goals from Alex
Sandro s deflected pass in the eighth
minute. Maxi Pereira set him up in the
61st for a second goal.
Silvestre Varela netted in the 84th
to secure the first three points of the
campaign for Julen Lopetegui s side.
Casillas left Madrid last month after
16 seasons, three Champions League
trophies and five Spanish league titles,
following a dip in form during the past
two seasons. (AP)

Marco Storari was the hero as
Cagliari beat Trapani on penalties,
but Frosinone crash out of the
Italian Cup yesterday.
Earlier, Empoli joined Bologna

In the early evening fixture, Sas-
suolo emerged victorious from the
local derby with Modena, and will
now face Cagliari in the next round.
The Neroverdi opted not to start
with new signing Gregoire Defrel,
but Domenico Berardi was
deployed from the first minute.
Diego Falcinelli opened the scor-
ing on 53 minutes, before substitute
Antonio Floro Flores but the result
beyond doubt 10 minutes later.
Next round opponents Cagliari
had more of a struggle, with the
Isolani heading to extra time
despite taking the lead at Trapani s
tiny Stadio Polisportivo Provinciale.
Alessandro Deiola nodded in a fine
cross from Antonio Balzano, but
then the Sardinians conceded a
penalty. However, the resulting
spot-kick was sent wide of Marco
Storari s post.
It was an Island derby , and the
Sicilian side did level up proceed-
ings just before half-time, when
Daniele Doveri gave away another
Giuseppe Montalto made no
mistake on this occasion, and
brought his side back into the
match. That was to be the end of
the regulation goalscoring, as the
match headed into extra time.
Gianni Munari was sent off in
the second period of extra-time
for the away side, but Trapani
couldn t find a way through the
Cagliari defence, and the match
went to penalties.
