Created on 28 Jan., 2013 3:17 AM GMT

Paris Saint-Germain moved back on top of Ligue 1 with a 1-0 triumph over Lille at the Parc des Princes on Sunday, while St.Etienne won again.

A 68th minute own goal from Lille defender Aurelien Chedjou was enough for the capital club to secure the three points.

The victory means that PSG go ahead of Lyon on goal-difference after temporarily relinquishing top position on Saturday while Lille remain in 11th position.

Seventh-placed St.Etienne continued their rise up the table in front of their fans as they overcame Bastia 3-0.

Brandao opened the scoring on nine minutes before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Joshua Guilavogui scored goals in the final 10 minutes.

Henri Saivet helped fifth-placed Bordeuax to a 1-0 away win against Nice.

The two teams switched position on the tables after Saivet's 58 minute strike sealed the victory.
