Lyon, France (SportsNetwork.com) - Marseille scored on each side of the interval on Sunday to rally from a two-goal deficit and earn a feisty 2-2 draw with Lyon at the Stade de Gerland.
Marseille entered the match riding a poor run of form in league play having lost two consecutive games and their afternoon started rather poorly as Alexandre Lacazette gave Lyon the lead in the 17th minute.
Two minutes before the intermission, Bafetimbi Gomis made it 2-0 for the home side.
But Marseille got back into the match when Andre-Pierre Gignac made it a 2-1 game with a tally in first half stoppage time. The visitors were then rewarded for their offensive pressure 11 minutes from time when summer signing Florian Thauvin scored the equalizer and the clubs were forced to share the points.
The result sees Marseille fall to sixth in Ligue 1 with 28 points, while Lyon moves into the top 10 on 24 points.
Elsewhere in Ligue 1 on Sunday, Nicolas Maurice-Belay's second-half tally held up as the winner as Bordeaux collected a 2-1 result over Valenciennes at the Stade Chaban-Delmas.
Tongo Hamed Doumbia opened the scoring in the 55th minute for the traveling side, but Jussie fired home a penalty three minutes later to put the sides on level terms.
Eloge Enza Yamissi had an opportunity to put Valenciennes in front in the 66th minute but missed his penalty attempt and Maurice-Belay won it for Bordeaux in the 73rd minute.
In Sunday's final Ligue 1 fixture, Salomon Kalou netted a pair of first-half goals in a span of five minutes as Lille earned a 2-1 victory over Bastia at the Grand Stade Lille Metropole. The hosts fell behind early via a Ludovic Genest goal three minutes in.
But Kalou's pair of quick strikes ensured Lille claimed the points and remained in the top three of France's top flight.
