Marseille blows 2-goal lead at Bastia in coach Marcelo Bielsa's French league debut
PARIS - Argentine coach Marcelo Bielsa got a close-up glimpse of the defensive work awaiting him at Marseille, which blew a two-goal lead to draw 3-3 at Bastia in the French league on Saturday.
Andre-Pierre Gignac scored twice to give Marseille a 3-1 lead but Bastia midfielder Christopher Maboulou also netted twice to salvage a point for the hosts.
Bielsa replaced French coach Jose Anigo in May to help revive Marseille's fortunes. Marseille was the runner-up in 2013 but finished sixth last season, missing out on a European spot.
Also Saturday, it was: Lille 0, Metz 0; Guingamp 0, Saint-Etienne 2; Montpellier 0, Bordeaux 1; Nantes 1, Lens 0; Nice 3, Toulouse 2; and Evian 0, Caen 3.
