APR 05, 2014 5:09p ET
Forwards Nolan Roux and Salomon Kalou grabbed a goal each to put Lille 2-1 up before halftime, before Ivory Coast right back Sergie Aurier pulled a goal back for Toulouse in injury time with his sixth league goal of the season.
The win means Lille is provisionally six points clear of Saint-Etienne, which hosts Nice on Sunday.
Seventh-place Bordeaux led 2-0 through forwards Guillaume Hoarau and Diego Rolan, but Rennes earned a point thanks to goals from midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure and winger Romain Alessandrini.
Relegation battlers Sochaux are in 19th place after also throwing away a 2-0 lead.
