PARIS -- Lyon missed the chance to move into provisional second place in the French league after drawing 0-0 against a resilient Lille on Saturday.

Lille goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama was made to work, including a stunning injury-time stop from Lyon center-half Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa.

Lyon improved after the interval, with France winger Mathieu Valbuena causing problems from set-pieces.

From one Valbuena corner, Corentin Tolisso headed firmly wide in the 55th.

Moments later, Tolisso tried his luck with a low strike from just outside the penalty area, but Enyeama saved it comfortably.

He made a far more difficult save in the 84th, tipping away Valbuena's curling strike as it headed for the top corner.

He was rescued by his post in the 88th, when defender Rafael met Valbuena's free kick with a glancing header.
