Memphis Depay scored twice as Lyon defeated Lens 3-2 to move three points clear at the top of Ligue 1.

There is much speculation about the future of Memphis, who is wanted by Barcelona and Juventus. However, the Dutch attacker could also remain at Lyon and spearhead their title charge.

After 39 minutes, Memphis was played through on goal and calmly slotted Lyon 1-0 in front.

An own goal at the start of the second half made it 2-0 before Memphis added the third with a penalty, which this time was not a Panenka.

Lens made it 3-2 by the end but Lyon held on to move three points clear at the top of the table. Elsewhere, Lille with Sven Botman lost 2-1 at home to Angers, while Mitchel Bakker played the full game as PSG drew 1-1 at Saint-Etienne.
