Marseille extended their unbeaten match to five matches against Montpellier Hérault SC on Saturday but failed to make it to four consecutive league victories as they were considered a 1: 1 draw at Stade Orange Vélodrome.
It was a point that came at a high price when Dimitri Payet and Boubacar Kamara both sent in an added time, and defender Alvaro Gonzalez, who has been impressive since his summer arrival from Villarreal, is now on the sideline about five weeks early in Week 6.
"We played well. We understood the goal, but Montpellier is a tough team to beat," admitted OM boss Andre Villas-Boas, who bounced off Bouna Sarr's early home goal thanks to Valère Germain's equalizer 15 minutes later.
"We had won the game but Montpellier defended well. There was less play after leveling. There was no final pass, a shot that would have won it for us ... This result is a setback. We have to keep working."
"A little bit upset because we wanted to win absolutely at all costs. We knew we would win by top of the table," added Germain, who scored his second league goal in as many games.
It may have been a setback, but OM is keeping in touch with the early-season accelerators at the top of the table and is hoping to add three more points to their table as they head to Stade Gaston Gérard, where they have each been defeated. on their four flights.
Dijon - like AS Monaco - is the only team that has won the game this season and remains on the table with just one name. They scored their first goal of the open game on Saturday with a 2-1 loss to OGC Nice, but couldn't keep up as the hosts lost to Stéphane Jobard's men in five innings.
"We could have gotten something from it. We passed the equalizer very quickly. We came out solid in the second half but passed right away," explained Bruno Manga, who saw Kasper Dolberg canceling Julio Tavarese's opener before Youcef. Atal struck two minutes into the second half. "We tried to make the effort, even if at times we were a little technical. We lost the match, it hurts."
Only last season Dijon avoided a run-off with play-offs. Unfortunately, of the eight teams that have only scored points after six games in 2001, only two have been able to avoid falling.
"We made some terrible defenses. We gave them the weapons they needed to beat us. We didn't put Nice in enough doubt," Jobard, who has lost 11 of Ligue 1's last 21 home games, admitted, but did. select the first point of their season with a goal-less draw against Nîmes Olympique on the final pitch of their pitch. "We need a win to start the season, we hope it starts against Marseille."Dijon: Gomis; Alphonse, Ecuele Manga, Aguerd, Mendyl; Balmont, Ndong; Mavididi, Pereira, Chouiar (or Baldé); Tavares (c)
