Alexandre Lacazette
Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette is Ligue 1's leading scorer with 25 goals

Lyon moved ahead of Paris St-Germain to the top of Ligue 1 after scoring two second-half goals against Bastia.

Hubert Fournier's side are two points clear of the defending champions, but have played an extra game.

Substitute Mohamed Yattara poked in the opener from Clement Grenier's cross, after the visitors failed to clear.

Captain Alexandre Lacazette sealed the win five minutes from time, assisted by Clinton Njie, with his 25th league goal of the season.

Bastia have picked up only one point from their last four games and lie 14th in the table, just two points above the relegation zone.

Second-placed PSG, who lost 3-1 to Barcelona in their Champions League quarter-final first leg hours later, play their game in hand against struggling Metz on 28 April.
