Olympique Lyonnais climbed into second place in Ligue 1 after coming from behind to beat Toulouse 3-2 at Le Stadium on Saturday following a dramatic finale featuring three goals in six minutes.

Substitutes Clement Grenier and Nabil Fekir made a big impact after Lyon, now one point ahead of Monaco and two in front of fourth-placed Nice, had fallen behind to defender Marcel Tisserand's 50th-minute opener.

Grenier equalised in the 73rd, five minutes after coming on, with a free-kick from the right that went under goalkeeper Alban Lafont at the near post.

Striker Alexandre Lacazette put the visitors in front for the first time in the 80th minute. Wissam ben Yedder equalised for Toulouse two minutes later but Corentin Tolisso tapped in an 85th-minute winner from Fekir's low cross.
