OM rocketed into second after a 2-1 win over the OL of ex-coach Rudi Garcia, but PSG, 2-1 winners in Brest, remain eight points clear at the top. Sainté's hot streak continued and Rennes roared back into the top half of the table.
OM coach André Villas-Boas hailed his players' performance to beat Lyon 2-1 despite being a man down in Sunday's Olympico; disappointed opposite number Rudi Garcia said his side will take the loss as a learning experience.
Two of Ligue 1 Conforama's most experienced coaches face off when Claude Puel's resurgent Sainté side take on the iron defence of Christian Gourcuff's Nantes side at the Stade dela Beaujoire on Sunday. Key stats!
Dijon FCO pulled themselves off the foot of the table with a stunning 2-1 win over leaders PSG; Marseille bounced back from a rough week by rocketing to fourth place with a 2-1 win over LOSC; and Memphis Depay starred for Lyon once again.
