Lyon put five past hapless Guingamp

Lyon thrashed struggling Guingamp 5-1 to return to third place in Ligue 1 but Marseille could only manage a home draw.

Rachid Ghezzal gave Lyon an early lead against Guingamp but the Parc Olympique Lyonnais was soon stunned by a Mevlut Erding equaliser.

Lyon were not to be denied however, and Alexandre Lacazette struck either side of Maxwell Cornet's effort before a late own goal from Reynald Lemaitre ensured it was a comfortable night in the end for Bruno Genesio's team.

Guingamp are now without a win in five league games and fall a place to 17th in the table.
