Pierre-Alain Frau's added-time winner catapulted LOSC Lille Métropole back to the top of Ligue 1 as the visitors clinched a dramatic 2-1 triumph at champions Olympique de Marseille.
Lille had looked set to end the weekend in second spot after Loïc Rémy had cancelled out Eden Hazard's superb long-range opener (10) with an hour gone. Neither side looked capable of adding to the scoreline after that until substitute Frau – sent on with five minutes to go – converted Emerson's cross from the left in the 91st minute. Rudi Garcia's men thus lead Rennes on goal advantage once again, with Marseille four points back in fourth.
Third spot now belongs to Olympique Lyonnais, tied with OM on 45 points, after Lisandro hit a hat-trick in their 5-0 defeat of bottom club AC Arles-Avignon, who lie 14 points behind second-bottom RC Lens. Miralem Pjanić and Michel Bastos also found the target as Lyon bolstered their own title hopes. FC Girondins de Bordeaux are up to seventh, meanwhile, after they triumphed 3-1 at Stade Brestois 29.
