Mitroglou rescues Marseille

Greece striker Kostas Mitroglou netted a late equaliser on his first Marseille start to salvage a point in Sunday’s 3-3 draw at Strasbourg as Steve Mandanda made a club record 453rd appearance.


Dimitri Payet gave Marseille the lead on five minutes, but Jean Eudes Aholou’s deflected shot pulled Strasbourg level before Morgan Sanson’s cross made it 2-1 to the visitors just after the break.


Nice slumped to a second successive defeat as they lost 2-0 at Montpellier after Mario Balotelli and Alassane Plea failed to convert a string of chances in a frustrating first half.
