Michy Batshuayi scored the winner to help Marseille beat Lille and move two points clear at the top of Ligue 1.

Paris St-Germain only managed a 0-0 draw against Montpellier on Saturday and Marseille capitalised to move three points clear of their rivals.

Nolan Roux's own goal gave them the lead against Lille and, despite an Idrissa Gueye equaliser, Batshuayi sent in a half-volley for the winner.

Lyon won 5-0 at Bordeaux to leapfrog PSG and move into second place.

Ligue 1 top scorer Alexandre Lacazette scored twice for Lyon as he took his tally to 17 for the season.

Bordeaux were reduced to 10 men after Nicolas Pallois was sent off in the 65th minute, while Corentin Tolisso, Nabil Fekir, Jordan Ferri were Lyon's other scorers.
