PSG see off Lyon
A moment of magic from Lionel Messi helped Paris Saint-Germain to a 1-0 win at Lyon.
Messi finished off a superb team move in the fifth minute to hand PSG a vital three points whilst resigning Lyon to a third-consecutive defeat.
"It was a very good game, we played very well," Neymar told PSG TV. "We won the game even though it was difficult and against a tough opponent. We had to be good defensively and in attacking areas and that’s what enabled us to win this game which was the most important thing.”
Marseille drop first home points
Matteo Guendouzi atoned for his early error as Marseille were held to a 1-1 draw against Rennes at the Orange Velodrome.
Guendouzi put through his own net to gift Rennes the lead (25') but made amends early in the second half by heading his side level (52').
Lorient flying high
Lorient secured their sixth win of the season after a comfortable 3-1 victory at Auxerre.
In-form Dango Ouattara netted to put Les Merlus ahead (15') before Terem Moffi scored his sixth goal of the season (36') and Enzo Le Fée added another three-minutes before the break. Gauthier Hein pulled one back for Auxerre five-minutes after half time.
Double delight for LOSC
LOSC produced two moments of brilliance in front of goal to see off Toulouse 2-1 at the Decathlon Arena.
Jonathan David fired LOSC in front (5') with a piece of individual magic. Then, Adam Ounas finished off Benjamin Andre's delightful pass (53') five minutes after Toulouse equalised through Fares Chaibi. 
"We knew it would be a very difficult match," said Marseille defender Chancel Mbemba "We were poor in the first half and at halftime, the coach asked us to move the ball quicker. We improved a lot in the second half and pushed hard for the equaliser, one point is better than losing."
