PARIS (AP) -Lyon took advantage of Paris Saint-Germain's latest home defeat by beating Reims 3-0 on Sunday to move provisionally top of the French league.

An own goal from Reims center half Anthony Weber gave Lyon the lead in the 45th minute, and strikers Bafetimbi Gomis and Lisandro Lopez added a goal each in the second half for the seven-time former champion.

Lyon is two points ahead of PSG, having played one game less. PSG lost its second straight home game on Saturday, slipping to an embarrassing 2-1 defeat to Rennes, which played most of the second half with nine players and a third-choice goalkeeper.

Later Sunday, Marseille could overtake Lyon and move into first place with a win at Bordeaux - where it has not won since 1977.
