Radamel Falcao scored a fine, late free-kick as Monaco edged out Dijon to go three points above champions Paris St-Germain at the top of Ligue 1.

Cedric Varrault gave struggling Dijon the lead, but Nabil Dirar equalised after Falcao’s free-kick hit the bar.

And Falcao, a 60th-minute substitute, scored the winner from 25 yards with a set-piece which found the top corner.

Nice, who are four points below neighbours Monaco, secured a Champions League place as they beat Nancy 3-1.

Jean Seri scored twice as they came from behind to ensure they will play in the European Cup for the first time since 1959-60.
