Sio put the visitors ahead with a powerful header in the 50th minute and set Cedric Bakambu up for the winning goal with two minutes left.

Lyon, who hit the woodwork three times and recorded only five attempts on target out of 22, needed a 68th-minute penalty kick by Bafetimbi Gomis to find the net.

Lyon have not won in their four last league games and slipped to the third spot with 53 points after Marseille leapfrogged them thanks to a 1-0 win at Nice in the day's early kick-off.
