(EFE) – Marseille got stuck against Reims (1-1) and fell for the fight for the leadership of Ligue 1 in France held by Lille, on the fifteenth day of the competition.
The second consecutive setback prevented Andre Villas Boas’ team from being one point behind Paris Saint Germain, second, and two points behind first place.
The Marseilles team is now four from the top, who could not win at the Velodrome stadium against a rival threatened by relegation but who prolonged their improvement.
Reims, who are three points away from Lorient, which marks the places towards Ligue 2, held on to the income they obtained in the twentieth minute with the own goal of the Japanese Yuto Nagatomo.
Marseille did not take advantage of the momentum brought by the draw near the break, signed by Florian Thauvin on a pass from Argentine Dario Benedetto.
Davi Guion’s team defended the point they had in their hand and thwarted every local threat, which has only achieved a draw in the last two games.
