RENNES, France -- Marseille ended a five-match losing streak in all competitions by drawing 1-1 with Rennes in the French league on Saturday.
Rennes striker Nelson Oliveira pounced on a miscued clearance from Marseille fullback Jeremy Morel to fire home a powerful strike from the edge of the box in the ninth minute for his seventh goal this season.
But Marseille forward Jordan Ayew levelled by converting a low cross from Kassim Abdallah in the 16th.
Marseille provisionally climbed to fifth place, five points behind third-place Lille.
Later Saturday, it's: Ajaccio vs. Valenciennes; Evian vs. Toulouse; Lyon vs. Guingamp; Reims vs. Bastia; and Sochaux vs. Saint-Etienne.
On Sunday, second-place Monaco visits Lille, Montpellier hosts Nantes and Nice faces Bordeaux.
Paris Saint-Germain consolidated its lead atop the league by routing Lorient 4-0 on Friday.
