Auxerre stalemate keeps Marseille second

Olympique de Marseille failed to return to the Ligue 1 summit after they could only draw 1-1 at home against AJ Auxerre, meaning they trail leaders LOSC Lille Métropole by one point.

Olympique de Marseille spurned the chance to return to the top of the standings in France after being held to a 1-1 draw at home against AJ Auxerre.

Victory would have sent Didier Deschamps' men a point clear of LOSC Lille Métropole with five matches remaining, and they seemed set for the summit when Mathieu Valbuena turned in a deflected André Ayew cross 11 minutes after the interval. OM had their opponents on the back foot for almost the entire encounter, yet they were pegged back with 13 minutes remaining as Jung Jo-Gook found the net after coming off the bench.

Third-placed Olympique Lyonnais experienced disappointment too as they succumbed 2-0 at Toulouse FC, the visitors ending with nine players after Aly Cissokho's late dismissal compounded the loss of Michel Bastos on 64 minutes. Lyon lie seven points shy of Lille, and are holding off fourth-placed Paris Saint-Germain FC courtesy of goal difference alone.

SM Caen hauled themselves out of the bottom three and up to 16th with a 4-0 win at OGC Nice, who had Renato Civelli sent off on the stroke of half-time. The meeting between Montpellier Hérault SC and Stade Brestois 29 finished goalless, meanwhile, with AS Saint-Étienne drawing 1-1 against AS Monaco FC.
