PARIS (AP) -- French league leader Lyon put pressure on its title rivals as the seven-time champion won 2-0 against struggling Lens for the club's sixth consecutive victory on Saturday.
In-form striker Alexandre Lacazette, the league's top scorer, took his tally to 20 goals from the penalty spot in the 26th, four minutes after Jean-Philippe Gbamin diverted the ball into his own net to put the visitors ahead.
After picking up just three points from its first four matches this season, Hubert Fournier's team has lost only one game since and produced sparkling football to climb to the top of the standings last weekend.
Lyon's fourth away win this season extended its lead over second-place Marseille to four points.
