Lyon’s Ligue 1 title bid took a huge blow as they suffered a second consecutive defeat – a surprise home loss to Lille.
Coming on the back of last week’s reverse away to lowly AC Ajaccio, the result leaves them six points adrift of PSG who are coasting coasting after poor results for both Lyon and Marseille since the winter break.
Aurelien Chedjou headed the visitors in front after 28 minutes and then doubled their advantage through Florent Balmont seconds before the break, converting Lyon coach Remi Garde’s half-time address into crisis talks.
