PARIS (AP) _ Substitute Tulio de Melo’s second-half goal gave Lille a 1-0 win over Lens to retain its four-point lead in the French league.

Lille could not create any clear-cut chance for nearly an hour as Lens played with 10 men behind the ball. Lille coach Rudi Garcia brought off star striker Moussa Sow and Florent Balmont to send on De Melo and Ludovic Obraniak in the 59th minute.

The move paid off as the Brazilian striker flicked home a pass from Obraniak in the 68th for the winning goal.

Lille tops the standings with 41 points, four clear of second-place Paris Saint-Germain, which beat Arles-Avignon 2-1 after two goals from Mevlut Erding.

The Turkey forward chipped past goalkeeper Cyrille Merville in the 17th, before adding a second goal in the 49th from an assist by Ludovic Giuly.
