Dijon remained in the drop zone after its fourth consecutive league defeat, level on points with Caen but with a game in hand. Third-place Lyon is five points behind Lille after a 5-1 rout of visiting Toulouse, which had Yannick Cahuzac sent off late following a second yellow card.
Mario Balotelli stole the spotlight again during fourth-place Marseille's 2-0 home win over Saint-Etienne, which is in fifth position. The controversial Italian international scored the first goal in the 12th minute and took a selfie video celebrating before posting it on Instagram later. Florian Thauvin also converted a 21st-minute penalty.
Elsewhere, Nice defeated Strasbourg 1-0 and Nantes drew at Guingamp 0-0.
