Paul Le Guen's men have been running away with the title so far this season, and look well on their way for a fourth straight championship this term.
Lyon hold a commanding eight-point lead over Marseille, but l'OM can cut that to five points if they win at the weekend after Lyon's defeat.
Sebastien Mazure was the hero for Caen, as his 71st minute strike was enough to inflict just a second league defeat of the season on Lyon.
Caen have been struggling in and around the drop zone, but their surprise three points give them some breathing space - and must give them confidence for the rest of the campaign.
A stunned Lyon must now pick themselves up for the second leg of their UEFA Champions League tie with Werder Bremen, where they hold a 3-0 advantage.
Le Guen may feel his side have one eye on Europe, as they nearly threw away a three-goal lead last Saturday against St Etienne - only winning 3-2 in the end.
