Lille continued their impressive start to the new season with a 4-0 destruction of Lens at Stadium Lille Metropole de Villeneuve d'Ascq.
Last weekend's success on their travels to Rennes has been followed up with another maximum spoils against Lille, who had Sidi Keita sent off in the 36th minute.
By this time they were already trailing by two goals courtesy of strikes from Mathieu Bodmer and Peter Odemwingie, who went on to have a fine afternoon.
In the second period the pacey front man ran riot as he completed a hat-trick with goals in the 56th and 66th minutes respectively.
In Sunday's other game, Marseille were comfortable winners over struggling Rennes as the ground out a comfortable 2-0 victory.
Mickael Pagis proved the man on the spot in the 38th minute when he broke the deadlock, while Toifilou Maoulida doubled his side's advantage with six minutes remaining.
Marseille's Franck Ribery, the subject of intense transfer speculation, started for his side and was the game's top performer with a virtuoso display.
