Despite a hat-trick from Lyon's forward Lisandro Lopez, Lille has defeated the seven-time French Ligue 1 champions 4-3 though they were loosing 1-3 at half-time. Lyon missed an important chance to narrow the gap with Ligue 1 leader Bordeaux.

REUTERS - Olympique Lyon failed to capitalise on a Lisandro Lopez hat-trick and missed a chance to narrow the gap with Ligue 1 leaders Girondins Bordeaux when they slumped to a dramatic 4-3 defeat at Lille on Sunday.

Ivory Coast striker Gervinho scored his second goal of the night one minute into stoppage time after being set up by substitute Eden Hazard.

Lyon, who twice blew a two-goal lead, dropped to fourth with 26 points from 15 matches, five behind Bordeaux, 1-0 winners over Paris St Germain on Saturday.

Earlier, a Nicolas Dieuze late goal gave bottom club Grenoble their first victory of the season when they beat Toulouse 1-0 at home.
