However, it was a good afternoon for Saint-Etienne, who came from behind to beat Reims 3-1 at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard and are so far the only side to have won their opening games of the new Ligue 1 campaign.A crowd of 53,000, including UEFA president Michel Platini, watched an OM looking to claim victory after throwing away a two-goal lead to draw 3-3 in Bastia last weekend.As Marseille pushed forward in search of an equalizer, Bielsa took off Brice Dja Djedje and sent on an extra forward in Michy Batshuayi, but they were hit on the break as Mounier's low cross was converted by Morgan Sanson in the 68th minute.
