On Sunday, Marseille and Lyon were held to a 1-1 draw at the Orange Velodrome. Marseille wanted to improve their league standing following a disappointing 1-1 draw with Nantes in their previous game whilst Lyon were coming off the back of a 3-2 win against Brest. As it stands, Marseille and Lyon currently occupy 7th and 3rd spots in the league, with 39 points and 56 points respectively after 27 matches.

Lyon started the first half well, following Karl Toko Ekambi opening the scoring, 21 minutes in. However, their lead was short lived, with an equalizer from a Arek Milik just before half-time brought Marseille level, which saw the first half end 1-1. Both teams struggled to produce anything meaningful in the second half, leaving the final score at 1-1.

Both teams used all their substitutes. For Marseille, Mickael Cuisance came on for Saif-Eddine Khaoui, while Lyon brought on Rayan Cherki, Bruno Guimaraes, Mattia De Sciglio, Islam Slimani and Sinaly Diomande to replace Karl Toko Ekambi, Houssem Aouar, Maxwel Cornet, Tino Kadewere and Leo Dubois.

The referee booked Boubacar Kamara, Dimitri Payet, Alvaro Gonzalez and Pape Alassane Gueye from Marseille. Lyon had the worst of it though, with Lucas Paqueta, Thiago Mendes and Memphis Depay seeing yellow, and Lucas Paqueta (2 yellow cards) then sent off with a red.

Marseille will next play Lille away, with Lyon facing Rennes at home.
