Marseille maintain perfect start

BY foxsports • September 24, 2012

Marseille maintained their 100% start to the Ligue 1 season on Sunday with a 1-0 victory over Evian at the Stade Velodrome.

Morgan Amalfitano netted the game's only goal 12 minutes before half-time to extend OM's winning run to six matches and ensure they remain at the top of the standings.

A stunning late equaliser from Lisandro Lopez maintained Lyon's unbeaten start to the season as Les Gones snatched a 1-1 draw at struggling Lille.

Nolan Roux's seventh-minute opener looked like it would be enough to earn LOSC only their second win in the league this term, but Lisandro had the last word with his 80th-minute rocket ensuring the visitors finished the weekend four points adrift of leaders Marseille.

Chahir Belghazouani rescued a last-gasp 2-2 draw for Ajaccio although opponents Bordeaux remain unbeaten in all competitions.

Home coach Francis Gillot thought Yoan Gouffran had earned him a second league win of the season with a second-half header after Ricardo Faty had cancelled out Henrique's opener for Les Girondins.

But Ajaccio earned their first away point since the opening day thanks to Belghazouani's late finish.
