Furiani, France (SportsNetwork.com) - Lyon bounced back from a disappointing spell to claim all three points at the Stade Armand-Cesari on Sunday, getting a 3-1 win over Bastia.
The visitors came into the affair on the back of a three-game winless run, and things looked to be heading further south when Florian Raspentino's 34th- minute strike put Bastia in front by halftime.
But Lyon responded admirably in the second half as Alexandre Lacazette and Yassine Benzia netted a goal apiece in the span of two minutes before Bafetimbi Gomis wrapped up the contest by tacking on a goal five minutes from time.
Yannick Cahuzac was handed his marching orders in the final stages for a second bookable offense to add insult to injury for Bastia, which sees its four-game unbeaten run come to an end.
Lille slipped four points off the pace of first-place PSG after suffering a 1-0 loss at Bordeaux, allowing Monaco to climb into second place with a 1-0 defeat of 10-man Ajaccio on Sunday.
Also on Sunday, Montpellier and Toulouse scored on opposite sides of halftime to split the points in a 1-1 draw.
