Saint-Etienne misses chance to pressure Marseille
PARIS (AP) -Saint-Etienne missed the chance to provisionally move above Marseille into third place when it drew 2-2 at relegation battler Troyes in the French league on Saturday.
Fourth-place Saint-Etienne twice took the lead through strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Brandao, but 19th-place Troyes earned a point thanks to goals from midfielders Julien Faussurier and Benjamin Nivet.
On Friday, substitute Kevin Gameiro's late winner was enough to give Paris Saint-Germain a 1-0 home win against defending champion Montpellier and send it provisionally eight points of second-place Lyon. Lyon hosts 18th-place Sochaux on Sunday.
Later Saturday, it was: Ajaccio vs. Toulouse; Bordeaux vs. Lorient; Evian vs. Reims; Rennes vs. Nancy, and Valenciennes vs. Bastia.
In Sunday's other games, third-place Marseille travels to fierce southern rival Nice and Brest faces Lille.
