Nice stay fourth in Ligue 1 with a 1-1 draw with Lorient at home.

High-flying Nice have been held to a 1-1 draw by Lorient at home in Ligue 1.

Both goals at Stade Municipal du Ray on Saturday came in the final 15 minutes, as neither side failed to take their chances until then.

Lorient broke the deadlock on 75 minutes thanks to Lucas Mareque, who slotted home after receiving a headed pass from Jeremie Aliadiere.

The visitors' lead lasted just seven minutes, as Valentin Eysseric latched on to Jeremy Pied's ball and shot in from close range.

The result leaves Claude Puel's side fourth in the league table with 39 points from 24 matches, just three points off the final Champions League spot.
