Marseille fail to build momentum

French champions Olympique de Marseille dropped points again as they could only draw 2-2 at home with AS Monaco FC, after FC Girondins de Bordeaux had lost 2-1 to OGC Nice.

French champions Olympique de Marseille twice had to come from behind to salvage a 2-2 draw at home against AS Monaco FC, after FC Girondins de Bordeaux had earlier slumped to a 2-1 defeat at OGC Nice.

Despite dominating their opponents at the Stade Vélodrome, Marseille geared up for Wednesday's UEFA Champions League meeting with FC Spartak Moskva by dropping points for the fourth time in five outings. Mathieu Valbuena cancelled out Daniel Niculae's opener for the visitors before Adriano Pereira's 80th-minute own goal cut short Nice's celebrations after Park Chu-Young had found the net. OM striker André-Pierre Gignac then had a headed goal ruled out in stoppage time.

The draw lifted Didier Deschamps's men to 13th, with Bordeaux still in the bottom three after suffering their third reverse this term. Eric Mouloungui put the finishing touch on an Anthony Mounier free-kick to set Nice on their way and Habib Bamogo made sure of the outcome four minutes into added time, before Anthony Modeste hit a consolation for the visitors from the penalty spot. The day's other game ended goalless between FC Lorient and Stade Brestois 29.
