Lille back to winning ways to reclaim Ligue 1 top spot

Lille reclaimed top spot in Ligue 1 when they rediscovered their touch with a comprehensive 4-1 victory at Lorient on Sunday.

Andrew Gravillon’s own goal and goals by Jose Fonte, Jonathan Ikone and Domagoj Bradaric put the northerners, who had drawn and lost their last two competitive games, on 58 points from 26 matches.

They lead second-placed Lyon, who beat Brest 3-2 away on Saturday, by three points and third-placed Paris Saint-Germain by four ahead of the French champions’ home game against AS Monaco later on Sunday.

The result left Lorient in 18th place with 23 points from 25 games.
