|PARIS Nick Kwiatkoski Jersey , Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- Thanks to Hatem Ben Arfa's strong performance, nine-man Nice claimed an eventful 4-1 rout of Saint-Etienne on Sunday, while Angers pulled off a shock win at Marseille.
The mercurial Ben Arfa bagged a brace for the second game in a row to help Nice snap the second-placed Saint-Etienne's five-match winning run in Ligue 1.
Vincent Koziello opened the scoring after five minutes, but was canceled out by Loic Perrin fifteen minutes later.
Ben Arfa Josh Bellamy Jersey , however, re-established the visitors' lead in the 39th minute, firing home from a tight angle.
The former Newcastle man then scored a wonder goal on the stroke of half-time, dribbling past several defenders before shooting low across St Etienne goalkeeper Stephane Ruffier from a tight angle.
Cote d'Ivoire midfielder Jean Seri rounded off the scoring in the 53rd minute before Saint-Etienne substitute Jean-Christophe Bahebeck missed a penalty six minutes from time.
Although Nampalys Mendy and Maxime Le Marchand were both dismissed Marcus Cooper Jersey , Nice held on to secure their third win in a row.
After the eighth round match, Nice moved up to the seventh and Saint-Etienne remained four points behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain.
Marseille's miserable start to the season continued as they were beaten 2-1 at home by newly promoted Angers.
Michel's men were behind after 38 minutes when Thomas Magnani opened scoring from the penalty spot.
Romain Thomas headed in a second on 69 minutes with Michy Batshuayi's 79th minute penalty proving scant consolation as the visitors celebrated a win.
Marseille, whose Stade Velodrome was closed on Sunday after crowd trouble in their previous home match against Lyon, have endured a problematic campaign to date Tom Compton Jersey , with just two league wins from eight.
Earlier, Montpellier recorded their first win of the season with a 2-1 victory over 10-man Lorient at the Stade de la Mosson, while last year's runners-up Monaco was held 3-3 at Guingamp.

RIO DE JANEIRO， Aug. 21 (Xinhua) -- Team USA won the third consecutive Olympic gold medal when the Americans beat Serbia 96-66 in the men's basketball tournament at the Rio Olympics on Sunday.
This was the last gold medal of the 2016 Rio and the 25th Olympic victory of Team USA， which also had perfect 8-0 records in 2008 Beijing and 2012 London.
The U.S. beat Serbia 94-91 in the preliminary round， but proved it is a different story when the gold medal is on stake.
An organized Serbian team produced enough trouble for the U.S.， as they did in the previous encounter， when the lead was exchanged five times and the game was tied four times in the first quarter.
But solid defence of the Americans shattered the confidence of the Europeans， who were hammered on one-on-one situation. The U.S. used a 24-7 run， initiated by Kevin Durant who scored 18 points in the second quarter， to take a comfortable lead on 43-22.
Serbia， which missed the 2008 and 2012 Games， never found their rythem of typical team work as the game was more like an NBA one.
This was the first Olympic medal for Serbia since 1996 Atlanta Games， when the then Yugoslavia won the silver medal after losing to the U.S..
The U.S. led 52-29 after two quarters， 79-43 after three before they won another one-sided game. The Americans averaged a 22.5-point winning margin in the tournament.
Durant had the game-high 30 points while DeMarcus Cousins had 13 points and 15 rebounds for the U.S..
The U.S. beat Serbia on the board.
