Ligue 1 round-up: Montpellier hold in-form Lyon
Last Updated: 19/11/17 10:39pm
Third-placed Lyon stretched their unbeaten Ligue 1 run to seven games, although they could only manage a goalless draw at home to Montpellier.
Bruno Genesio's side had hit 12 goals without reply in their last three league games but, with suspended 11-goal top-scorer Nabil Fekir watching from the stands, they were unable to make a breakthrough at the Groupama Stadium.
The stalemate leaves Les Gones three points behind second-placed Monaco and nine adrift of leaders Paris St Germain.
Fourth-placed Marseille needed an injury-time leveller to extend their unbeaten league run to eight games as they snatched a 1-1 draw at Bordeaux.
Morgan Sanson grabbed the dramatic equaliser, drilling home his third goal in his last three league games in the fourth minute of stoppage time following a searching free-kick into the Bordeaux box.
In Sunday's opening game, Ronny Rodelin denied Nice a second straight league win as he scored two minutes into injury time to grab a 1-1 draw for Caen at the Stade Michel d'Ornano.
