PARIS (Reuters) – Rennes lost their 100 percent record in Ligue 1 on Sunday when visitors Nice came from behind to beat them 2-1 with a stoppage time goal by Racine Coly.

The only team to win their opening three games, Rennes dominated the first half and went ahead after 25 minutes when Gautier Lloris turned a Jeremy Morel header into his own net.

Nice levelled with a penalty in the 63rd minute, Wylan Cyprien scoring from the spot for the second game in a row after Youcef Atal was fouled by Hamari Traore.

Patrick Vieira’s side then took all three points when Coly turned the ball in at the far post after a corner was headed on.

The result left Paris St Germain, Rennes, Nice and Angers all level on nine points from four games with the Parisians leading on goal difference.
