In a spectacular Ligue 1 game on Sunday, Lyon's Jeremy Toulalan scored an own goal in stoppage time to hand visitors Marseille a 5-5 draw.

REUTERS - Jeremy Toulalan scored an own goal in stoppage time to hand Olympique Marseille a 5-5 draw at Olympique Lyon in a spectacular Ligue 1 game on Sunday after leaders Girondins Bordeaux had slumped to a 2-0 defeat at Lille.

Second-placed Lyon are now one point adrift of Bordeaux, who appeared weary and clueless against Lille and conceded two goals from midfielders Yohan Cabaye and Florent Balmont.

At Lyon's Gerland stadium, the hosts got the better start but were 4-2 down in the second half before a Lisandro Lopez double put them level.

Lyon looked set for victory after Brazilian Michel Bastos netted with one minute remaining, only for Toulalan to score his own goal three minutes into stoppage time.

French internationals Moussa Sissoko and Andre-Pierre Gignac found the back of the net to help Toulouse beat Stade Rennes 3-2.
