Lille OSC had a good dress-up for the return against Ajax in the second round of the Europa League on Sunday with a 1-4 victory over FC Lorient in Ligue 1.
In Russia, Tonny Vilhena made a world goal for FC Krasnodar in the 1-2 home game against PFC Sochi.
Lille took the lead at Lorient halfway through the first half thanks to an own goal from Andrew Gravillon.
Two minutes later, Jérôme Hergault leveled the home team.
Seven minutes before the break, José Fonte gave Lille the lead again from a rebound.
Jonathan Ikone expanded the margin after an hour of play from a nice free kick and substitute Domagoj Bradaric determined the final score in the final phase.
Sven Botman played with the visitors throughout the match.
Thanks to the victory, Lille takes the lead in Ligue 1 from Olympique Lyon, which won 2-3 at Stade Brest on Friday, partly thanks to a goal from Memphis Depay.
The difference between the two teams is three points.
Later in the evening, Paris Saint-Germain can take over second place from Lyon.
Lille will play the return against Ajax in the Johan Cruijff ArenA next Thursday.
Earlier this week, the team from Amsterdam won the first leg in France with 1-2.
What a goal by Tonny Vilhena for Krasnodar!
Fifteen minutes after his raid, he just pops it in!

World goal Vilhena does not benefit Krasnodar
In Russia, Vilhena brought Krasnodar back into the match against Sochi in the final phase via a beautiful goal.
The midfielder shot the ball from about 30 meters in the top right corner.
Despite the goal from Vilhena, Krasnodar went down 1-2 by hits from Anton Zabolotnyi and Joãzinho, who previously scored for Sochi in the second half.
