Lille climbed back to the top of Ligue 1 despite being held to a 1-1 draw by Lyon on Sunday.

Rudi Garcia’s side were shuffled back into second spot courtesy of Rennes’ 2-0 win over Lens on Saturday, but were on track to hit back and reclaim the league lead when Moussa Sow scored in the ninth minute at the Stadium Nord Lille Metropole.

But Swede Kim Kallstrom pegged back the home side with a 28th minute goal, earning fifth-placed Lyon a point.

The result sees Lille regain top spot from Rennes by account of goal difference.

Paris Saint-Germain moved into fourth on the table with a 2-1 win over Toulouse.

The home side at Parc des Princes were cruising after Sylvain Armand and Mathieu Bodmer scored in the first half, and the momentum was well and truly with the Parisians after Paulo Machado had missed an earlier penalty for Toulouse.

Franck Tabanou pulled a goal back for the 11th-placed Toulouse, but it did not save them from a third straight defeat.

Andre Ayew was the hero as Marseille came from behind to win 2-1 away to Nancy.

Ayew had earlier cancelled out Julien Feret’s opener at the Stade Marcel Picot, before netting an 87th minute winner that ensured his side maintain third place on the table.
