Marseille 1 – Lyon 3 (Ligue 1, May 17, 2009) (Longer highlights here.) OM had the better of the opening, but they fell behind to a Karim Benzema penalty on the half hour. Marseille were left stunned just before halftime when Benzema grabbed his second of the game, slipping the ball beyond Steve Mandanda at the near post. Sylvain Wiltord gave the hosts a lifeline in the 81st minute when he turned the ball home from Niangâ€™s centre. But Lyon grabbed a late third, Juninhoâ€™s long-range free-kick took a bounce to deceive Mandanda.
Nantes 1 – Rennes 1 (Ligue 1, May 17, 2009) Second-bottom Nantes took the lead against Rennes just before the break when Mamadou Bagayoko ran through to confidently slot in the opener. Moussa Sow equalised for Rennes after a neat piece of close control in the 83rd minute.
Lille 1 – Nice 1 (Ligue 1, May 17, 2009) Anthony Modeste slid Nice into the lead at Lille, but LIlle rarely lose at home and it was no surprise when Yohan Cabaye eventually levelled 20 minutes from time.
