Marseille and Lille share Ligue 1 spoils
Marseille have had an extra player for an hour but could only manage a 1-1 home draw with defending Ligue 1 champions Lille.
The result left Marseille, who have a game in hand, two points behind second-placed Nice.
Turkey winger Cengiz Under equalised for Marseille with a brilliant curling strike into the right corner after a quick corner from Dimitri Payet in the 75th.
After Marseille goalkeeper Pau Lopez made a fine save from veteran Turkey striker Burak Yilmaz's shot, Dutch defender Sven Botman headed firmly in from the ensuing corner in the 15th minute.
It could have got worse as the alert Lopez kept out Yilmaz's point-blank header from Renato Sanches' cross moments later.
Despite having midfielder Benjamin Andre sent off for a second yellow card in the 32nd, Lille pushed forward and winger Jonathan Bamba drew a fine save from Lopez with a powerful shot.
Earlier on Sunday, Rennes bounced back in style from three straight defeats by routing struggling Bordeaux 6-0 at home to reclaim fourth place.

Striker Gaetan Laborde and winger Martin Terrier each scored to reach 10 league goals apiece this season -- as many as Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.

Laborde struck on the hour before Adrien Truffert scored in the 69th minute and fellow substitute Serhou Guirassy netted twice in the closing stages.
