Memphis Depay contributed with an assist to Olympique Lyon's 1-0 victory at Stade Rennes.
In England, Leicester City ran into a loss of points on Wednesday evening.
Lyon struggled with Rennes for a long time, but in the 74th minute Memphis led in the winning goal.
The Orange international pushed on well and captured the ball in the penalty area of Rennes.
With a sliding, the striker delivered the ball to teammate Houssem Aouar, who scored with an inticker.
The Memphis team could use the victory on character, because Lyon is not in great shape.
Only one of the previous three league matches was won.
Due to the tight home win, Lyon is at least in the lead for a few hours in the Ligue 1. Lille and Paris Saint-Germain can come alongside later on Wednesday.
Those teams will compete against Olympique Marseille and Girondins de Bordeaux respectively.
