An extraordinary save from Yohann Pele prevented Lille from defeating Marseille as they drew 0-0 on Friday.

With six minutes to go Portugal international Eder looked set to give the visitors the lead when he powerfully nodded towards goal from six yards out, but Pele somehow reacted in time to push the ball onto the crossbar.

Lille stopper Vincent Enyeama applauded the save from the other end, even though it meant the spoils were shared.

Bastia remain in the relegation zone following a 1-0 loss at Metz.

The hosts were victims of their own downfall as Gilles Cioni scored an own goal two minutes into the second half to settle the contest.
