Paris Saint-Germain extended their lead at the top of Ligue 1 to 12 points following a 1-0 victory at struggling Toulouse.
Unai Emery's side dominated throughout at Stadium Municipal but they could only get through the home defence once thanks to Neymar's 19th goal in 18 league appearances.
Toulouse held the league leaders until the 68th minute before Angel Di Maria found the Brazilian in the penalty area.
He beat his marker and fired past Alban Lafont for the only goal of the game via a deflection off Issa Diop.
Stevan Jovetic netted twice as Monaco moved up to second with a comprehensive 4-0 win at relegation-threatened Angers.
The reigning champions took the lead after 10 minutes when goalkeeper Ludovic Butelle diverted into his own goal, before the Montenegro striker grabbed his first with a well-timed finish on the half-hour mark.
Jovetic, who had only scored two goals in nine league games before the match, doubled his tally for the season to put Leonardo Jardim's side 3-0 up after the break before centre-back Andrea Raggi rounded off the scoring.
Nice suffered their third successive league defeat following a 3-2 loss at Dijon.
The match burst into action in the final 30 minutes when Julio Tavares broke the deadlock to end a lightning counter-attack for the hosts.
Nice responded with a quickfire double through Pierre Lees Melou and Alassane Plea to move 2-1 ahead with 23 minutes remaining.
But Tavares got his second from the penalty spot to equalise for Olivier Dall'Oglio's side before Kwon Chang-Hoon scored the winner six minutes from time to earn back-to-back wins for just the second time this season.
Bordeaux held onto a 3-2 win against Amiens to extend their winning run to four games in Ligue 1.
Two goals in eight first-half minutes from young defender Jules Kounde and Danish midfielder Lukas Lerager put the hosts in control at the break.
Francois Kamano extended Bordeaux's lead to 3-0 with 12 minutes remaining as they looked to ease to victory, only for John Mendoza and Gael Kakuta to hit back.
Giovanni Sio's first-half goal was enough for Montpellier to earn a 1-0 triumph at basement side Metz, while Guingamp and Caen played out a goalless draw at Stade du Roudourou.
