Marseille shocked at home in Ligue 1

Second-placed Marseille have suffered a surprise 2-0 home defeat to Clermont, missing the chance to close the gap on Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

Mohamed Bayo opened the scoring in the 13th minute, his 10th goal of the season, and substitute Jim Allevinah doubled the visitors' advantage at Stade Velodrome in the 84th to move them up to 27 points and 15th on the ladder.

Marseille remain on 45 points, 13 behind PSG.

I think we need to change something about our attitude, because it's a question of mentality," Marseille goalkeeper Pau Lopez said.

We need to change now because we're entering the most important moment of the season.

Second spot seals automatic entry into the Champions League next season, but Marseille's defeat leaves them just one point ahead of third-placed Nice who beat Angers 1-0 thanks to Justin Kluivert's fifth goal of the season.

Fourth-placed Strasbourg were held to a 2-2 draw at St Etienne.

Ryad Boudebouz gave the hosts a fourth-minute lead before Habib Diallo and Lucas Perrin put Strasbourg ahead. But Wahbi Khazri levelled matters before the break.

Elsewhere, Montpellier won 1-0 at Lorient, Reims and Brest drew 1-1, and Rennes beat Troyes 4-1.

Bordeaux drew with 10-man Monaco in David Guion's first game in charge of the struggling six-time champions.

Remi Oudin gave Guion the perfect start but Monaco, who had Aurelien Tchouameni sent off for a second bookable offence after 34 minutes, equalised midway through the second half when home defender Marcelo turned the ball into his own net.

The result dropped Bordeaux to the foot of the table on 21 points, behind Metz, Lorient and Troyes on goal difference, while Monaco stay sixth.
