Big guns misfire as Marseille draw with Lyon

MONTPELLIER: Struggling giants Marseille failed to get a shot on target in a tense 0-0 draw with Lyon, whose team bus was stoned ahead of the bitter Ligue 1 clash on Sunday.

Potential new Marseille owner, American tycoon Frank McCourt was at the Velodrome alongside club president Margarita Louis-Dreyfus where the under fi nanced side failed to impress. As the tension mounted Marseille striker Bafetimbi Gomis missed an injury time sitter against his former club leaving coach Franck Passi holding his head in his hands.

Marseille are now two points off the bottom of Ligue 1 while last season’s runners-up Lyon are in seventh, six points off leaders Monaco.
