Marseille, Bordeaux, Nantes miss chances to join top three in Ligue 1

15/10/2017

Marseille, Bordeaux and Nantes all missed out on the chance to move into the top three of Ligue 1 after draws on Sunday.

Marseile led twice against Strasbourg, but eventually needed a late Kostas Mitroglou effort to earn a share of the spoils at 3-3.

Dimitri Payet's early opener from Jordan Amavi's cross was cancelled out by Jean-Eudes Aholou and Bakary Kone, having put through his own goal, redeemed himself by heading Strasbourg's second equaliser from a corner.

Dimitri Lienard then put them ahead, but Mitroglou scored in the 88th minute of his league debut, pouncing after Amavi's long-range effort was only parried by goalkeeper Bingourou Kamara.

Earlier, Prejuce Nakoulma put Nantes ahead on the stroke of half-time when he pounced on Leo Dubois' blocked effort, but Malcom fired in his fifth league strike of the season early in the second period to earn Bordeaux a 1-1 draw.

Montpellier won 2-0 against a Nice side struggling to match the achievements of the past two seasons.

Stephane Sessegnon and substitute Isaac Mbenza scored superb long-range goals as the hosts, wearing a special pink kit in support of cancer charities, earned their third league win of the season.
