Toulouse hold Marseille to a draw, Lyon slump at Valenciennes

Latest update : 2009-05-03

Valenciennes staged a huge upset by defeating Lyon, who have ruled unchallenged over the French league for the last seven years. Two goals by Gignac saw Toulouse secure a draw against Marseille, who remain at the top of the table.

REUTERS - Two deflected shots by Mamadou Niang helped Olympique Marseille draw 2-2 with Toulouse to extend their Ligue 1 lead to three points on Saturday.

 

The league's top scorer Andre-Pierre Gignac took his tally this season to 21 goals, twice giving visitors Toulouse the lead after the interval.
 

Marseille have 68 points with four games left, three ahead of second-placed Girondins Bordeaux who host struggling Sochaux on Sunday.

 

Olympique Lyon's hopes of an eighth successive title all but vanished when a double strike by Johan Audel led Valenciennes to a 2-0 home win over the champions.

Third-placed Lyon have 61 points while Toulouse are fifth on 58.
