Lens moved to within two points of PSG by extending their 100 per cent league home record to seven games. Seko Fofana saw his 48th-minute spot-kick saved by Maxime Dupe, the third penalty that the Toulouse goalkeeper has kept out this season. But the game turned with Openda's introduction after 56 minutes. The Belgian headed home fellow substitute Florian Sotoca's cross within four minutes of arriving before scoring twice late on to take his season's tally to seven. Niclas Fullkrug's late header saw Werder Bremen return to winning ways by beating Hertha Berlin 1-0. Fullkrug, the Bundesliga's top scorer, claimed his ninth goal of the season with his superb looping effort ending a run of three straight defeats for Werder. Mallorca and Espanyol drew 1-1 in LaLiga after Vedat Muriqi had given the hosts the lead three minutes after the interval. Jose Carlos Lazo equalised after 70 minutes from a difficult angle before Mallorca's Pablo Maffeo was sent off in the final moments.
