Terrier struck four minutes from time to give Lyon all three points.

Martin Terrier's late goal saw Lyon snatch a 1-0 win over Rennes on Friday night to close in on second-placed Lille in Ligue 1.

Moments after Adrien Hunou missed a glorious chance for the hosts, Terrier struck four minutes from time to give Lyon all three points at Roazhon Park.

It was a victory Lyon just about deserved on the balance of play, but a game with plenty of chances had looked like ending goalless.

Nabil Fekir had the best of those chances when his 13th-minute free-kick was pushed onto a post by Tomas Koubek.

Rennes forward Hatem Ben Arfa carried the threat to the club where he began his career with a number of chances, but like his team-mates he could find no way to beat Anthony Lopes.

Hunou should have done just that in the 85th minute when Rennes poured forward on the counter-attack, but he missed the target from six yards.

And it proved costly as Lyon went straight down the other end where Terrier's left-footed shot from close range won it for the visitors.
