Marseille 1 – Bordeaux 0 (Ligue 1, February 8, 2009) Both sides spurned a series of chances to score in the first half (highlights here). Marseille’s opener came in unexpected fashion as Marouane Chamakh, standing alone in front of his keeper, inexplicably headed from a corner past the stunned Rame and into the net.
Nice 1 – Lyon 3 (Ligue 1, February 8, 2009) Jean Makoun and Karim Benzema put Lyon 2-up after 27 minutes. Apam gave Nice a lifeline on the stroke of halftime but Makoun’s second after the break sealed the win.
Grenoble 0 – Valenciennes 0 (Ligue 1, February 8, 2009) Valenciennes remain rooted in the relegation zone but it was not for the lack of trying as they created several chances in a goalless draw at Grenoble.
