Ligue 1 champions LOSC Lille Métropole fought back from behind to inflict a first defeat of the season on winless Olympique de Marseille, beating their visitors 3-2.
Moussa Sow opened his account for the season (15) to give the hosts the lead before a dramatic 19 minutes of football decided the outcome after the break. Mathieu Valbuena drew OM level 11 minutes after the restart and then gave his side the upper hand with another goal six minutes later, but Aurélien Chedjou equalised for Lille (66) and Sow's penalty 15 minutes from time earned Les Dogues their second win of the campaign.
Paris-Saint Germain FC also came from behind as they clinched a last-gasp victory away to Toulouse FC. Etienne Capoue put Toulouse in front (39), but Kevin Gameiro restored parity (56) before Mevlüt Erdinç's 90th-minute strike gave the visitors the advantage. Jérémy Menez completed the scoring in added time to lift PSG into third.
Elsewhere, Stade Rennais FC held off a spirited SM Caen comeback to win 3-2. The hosts were seemingly cruising after Abdoulrazak Boukari (5), Jires Kembo-Ekoko (41) and Kader Mangane (45) had given them a significant half-time lead, but they needed to hold firm after Caen responded twice around the hour mark. In the day's other game, FC Sochaux-Montbéliard ran out 2-1 winners at home to AS Saint-Étienne courtesy of a first-half Ryad Boudebouz double.
