Marseille fire blanks as St-Étienne stunned

Olympique de Marseille's winless streak was extended to four games in all competitions after a stalemate at SC Bastia, while Toulouse FC stunned AS Saint-Étienne.

Olympique de Marseille are without a win in four matches in all competitions after being held to a goalless stalemate at SC Bastia.

Three straight wins at the season's start was reason for excitment amongst OM fans, but Marseille have stuttered of late. Wednesday night's loss to Arsenal FC in the UEFA Champions League followed defeat by AS Monaco and a draw with Toulouse FC, and a trip to Corsica failed to revive their fortunes. Veteran home goalkeeper Mickaël Landreau maintained his fine recent form and a lively Florian Thauvin was kept at bay by his old club; OM could not find a breakthrough.

Toulouse FC pulled off an upset on Friday night, winning 2-1 at high-flying AS Saint-Étienne. Romain Hamouma put Les Verts in front, but two goals in 12 second-half minutes from Martin Braithwaite and Issiaga Sylla turned the game on its head.

Foued Kadir scored twice in the opening 16 minutes as Stade Rennais FC overcame struggling AC Ajaccio; Nolan Roux hit a first-half double as LOSC Lille won 2-0 at FC Sochaux-Montbéliard; and Stade de Reims drew 1-1 with EA Guingamp. Montpellier Hérault SC still seek a second win this term after Évian Thonon Gaillard FC recovered from 2-0 down to draw, with two goals in the final 16 minutes.
