The ex-Real Madrid striker scored the third, Memphis notched a brace and Fekir-less Lyon continue to show why they are a threat at the top of the Ligue 1 table.

Another goal from former Real Madrid player Mariano Diaz and two from Memphis Depay helped Lyon to a 5-0 over Nice on Sunday to move into second behind Paris Saint-Germain in the Ligue 1 table.

Depay at the double for Lyon

The Dutch winger scored twice at Nice's Allianz Riviera home as Lyon brushed off the absence of captain Nabil Fekir through illness to leapfrog Monaco on goals scored, ahead of the clash between the principality club and PSG later on Sunday.

Former Manchester United player Depay steered in the opener on five minutes, before Maxwel Cornet made it two against a Nice side who are now stuck in the relegation playoff place, having finished third last season.

Lyon's Memphis Depay celebrates scoring their first goal with his fingers in his ears.

Madrid reject Mariano continues to impress

Mariano, a close-season signing from Real Madrid, added the third goal in only the 27th minute, before Depay curled into the corner before half-time to score his 10th goal of the campaign.

Nice centre-back Marlon was sent off with 20 minutes to play, and 18-year-old Myziane Maolida came off the bench to complete the rout, as he did in Lyon's midweek 4-0 Europa League win over Apollon Limassol.
