Marseille's miserable start to the season continued with a 2-1 home defeat Sunday to newly promoted Angers. Marseille's players were booed off the pitch at halftime and at the end of its third defeat of the season. Angers went ahead in the 38th minute after Remy Cabella fouled Arnold Bouka Moutou and Thomas Mangani fired the penalty down the middle. Marseille forced two good saves from visiting goalkeeper Ludovic Butelle immediately after the break, but Angers doubled its advantage in the 70th when Romain Thomas headed in Billy Ketkeophomphone's free kick. Michy Batshuayi pulled one back for Marseille from the penalty spot after Fode Dore was harshly adjudged to have brought down Lucas Ocampos. Saint-Etienne hosts Nice later looking to close the gap to leader Paris Saint-German to one point.
