Forwards Alexandre Lacazette and Bafetimbi Gomis got a goal each Sunday as Lyon won 2-1 at Nantes to move up to sixth place in the French league.

Lacazette has been in fine form and he opened the scoring in the 40th minute, turning in the rebound after goalkeeper Remy Riou had saved Gomis' effort following Clement Grenier's cross from the right.

Lacazette has 13 league goals this season, including four in the last four games.

Gomis grabbed his ninth of the campaign with a penalty in the 77th after Riou fouled Lacazette, before Serbia forward Filip Djordjevic replied in the 84th and was then sent off three minutes later.
