Ligue 1: First home league win for PSG

PARIS, Jan 13 (Reuters) - Ivory Coast forward Amara Diane scored twice to fire Paris St Germain to a 3-0 win over Racing Lens on Sunday, the capital side's first home Ligue 1 win this season.

Stade Rennes recovered from a goal down to beat Olympique Marseille 3-1 courtesy of two late Sylvain Wiltord goals in the other game played on Sunday.

Former Portugal striker Pauleta opened the scoring for PSG from a backward pass by Diane on 58 minutes. Diane did the rest himself, doubling the advantage with an angled shot in the 65th before wrapping it up with a header two minutes later.

PSG climb to 11th while Lens stay third from bottom.

Marseille took the lead in Rennes through forward Djibril Cisse but the home side equalised before the break thanks to former Marseille striker Mickael Pagis.

The visitors had Argentine newcomer Juan Angel Krupoviesa sent off for a dangerous tackle on Pagis in the 68th minute. Rennes then took control with two goals in the last eight minutes from France forward Wiltord.

Rennes move up to ninth while Marseille slide down to 12th.

Champions Olympique Lyon went six points clear at the top after recovering from a goal down to beat Toulouse 3-2 on Saturday.

Lyon, chasing a seventh successive title, moved on to 42 points from 20 matches, six ahead of second-placed Nancy who had to be content with a 0-0 draw at Caen.
