    PARIS — Saint-Etienne claimed a first away win in more than four months and moved up to fifth in the French league standings with a 1-0 victory at Rennes on Thursday.

    Both teams struggled to create chances before defender Moustapha Bayal Sall netted the winner in the 74th minute with a header at the back post.

    The strike earned Saint-Etienne its first league win away from Geoffroy Guichard stadium since Sept. 23, and lifted it to within six points of second-place Monaco.

    Runaway leader Paris Saint-Germain has a 24-point lead at the top of the standings.
