Lyon secure a 3-1 win against Toulouse to move to within a point of second-placed Marseille in Ligue 1.

Lyon have closed the gap to second-placed Marseille with a 3-1 win over Toulouse in Ligue 1 this afternoon.

The home side made a quick start to the match, with Clement Grenier grabbing the opening goal in the eighth minute, tapping in an Alexandre Lacazette cross from close range.

Despite going behind early on, Toulouse were able to match their opponents in the first half, drawing level through a Wissam Ben Yedder effort.

Lyon started the second half strongly, forcing a series of corners inside the opening three minutes.

At the third time of asking, Grenier picked out Bakary Kone in the box, who headed the ball past Olivier Blondel to restore the hosts' lead.

The visitors pressed for another equaliser, with Franck Tabanou putting a free kick high before pulling a close-range effort wide.

Bafetimbi Gomis tapped in a third for the hosts against the run of play after Lisandro Lopez dispossessed the visitors in midfield.

The win helps Lyon keep the pressure on Marseille, while Toulouse remain 11th in the table.
