Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda pulled off a number of saves to help his side hold on for a 0-0 draw at Lille on Sunday evening, but the result means OM are now nine points behind Ligue 1 leaders PSG.

Marseille saw its slim title hopes diminish as it was held to a goalless draw at Lille in the French League on Sunday.

Lille, which is making a late push for a Champions League spot, had the better chances but could not find its way past a Marseille side which has not conceded a goal in its last four games.

Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda pulled off a number of saves to keep a clean sheet, denying Salomon Kalou, Dimitri Payet and Djibril Sidibe among others.

Marseille is nine points behind leader Paris Saint-Germain.

Lyon reignited its bid for a Champions League spot and moved third with a 3-1 victory over Toulouse.

It is two points ahead of Saint-Etienne and Nice, which cruised to a 3-0 win against relegation-threatened Sochaux.
