Newly-promoted Monaco beat Lorient 1-0 Sunday to return to the top of the table.
Radamel Falcao won and converted a penalty in the sixth minute for his fourth goal of the season. The Colombia striker had been tripped by Lorient goalkeeper Fabien Audard.
Lorient offered little in attack all match. Sadio Diallo thought he had equalised in the 26th minute but his effort was ruled out for offside.
