An improving Marseille side began the game in an impressive fashion and their positive approach soon reaped dividends, as they conjured a third minute opener.
Lively hit-man Peguy Luyindula was the man on target, as he caught the Lyon backline cold to open the scoring.
However, Lyon, who top the table, were soon back on level terms when on 31, Govou steered home his fourth goal of the season to earn a 1-1 draw.
