Teenage forward Martial scores as Monaco wins 3-1 at Reims

PARIS (AP) -- Teenage striker Anthony Martial scored his fourth league goal in the last three games Sunday as Monaco kept up its push for a European place next season with a 3-1 win at Reims.

After Brazilian defender Fabinho gave Monaco a fifth-minute lead, the 19-year-old Martial made it 2-0 in the 14th.

Forward Diego Rigonato pulled one back for Reims, but Morocco midfielder Nabil Dirar sealed Monaco's win in the 79th.

The victory moves fourth-place Monaco to within one point of third-place Marseille, which was at relegation-threatened Lens later Sunday.

Also, Ivory Coast winger Max-Alain Gradel scored both goals in Saint-Etienne's 2-0 home win against Lille, taking his tally to 10 this season -- including five in the last four games.

Lille midfielder Rony Lopes was sent off in the 52nd.
