Lyon 2-2 Marseille

Marseille"s French midfielder Florian Thauvin

A late Florian Thauvin strike completed a stirring Marseille comeback at Lyon to earn sporting director Jose Anigo his first point since taking temporary charge of the Stade Velodrome outfit.

First-half goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Bafetimbi Gomis gave the hosts a 2-0 lead after 43 minutes.

Andre-Pierre Gignac pulled Marseille back into the match just before half-time before Thauvin's equaliser with 11 minutes remaining.

Marseille drop to sixth in Ligue 1.

Sporting director Anigo was put in charge for four games, starting with Wednesday's Champions League defeat to Borussia Dortmund, after Elie Baup was fired.

Baup led the club to second place in Ligue 1 and a Champions League spot last season.

They are now 15 points behind leaders Paris St-Germain, while Remi Garde's Lyon remain in the top 10 after an unbeaten four-match run.
