Ligue 1 wrap: Lyon go top

Created on 19 Nov., 2012 2:40 AM GMT

Lyon leapfrogged Paris Saint-Germain into top spot in Ligue 1 after they recorded a comfortable 3-0 win over Reims on Sunday.

Following PSG's shock defeat at the hands of Stade Rennes on Saturday, Lyon had the chance to go top and they did thanks to an own goal from Reims defender Anthony Weber and goals from Bafetimbi Gomis and Lisandro Lopez in the second half.

Lyon hit the front on the stroke of half-time after Anthony Reveillere's cross was turned in by Weber.

The hosts increased their lead in the 73rd minute, with Gomis netting his sixth goal of the season from close range.

And the result was put beyond doubt when Lopez sent the ball past goalkeeper Kossi Agassa.

Remi Garde's side are two points clear at the summit with a game in hand.

Bordeaux moved up to second thanks a 1-0 win at home to title rivals Marseille.

Marseille had the opportunity to go top but Yoan Gouffran's 52nd-minute goal, his second in two games, handed Bordeaux their third win in a row.

Meanwhile, Toulouse's poor form continued as they were beaten 1-0 by a resurgent Nice outfit, who are undefeated in three league fixtures.
