Nantes manager Claudio Ranieri suffered a second straight defeat on his return to Ligue 1 as the Italian's injury-ravaged team were beaten 1-0 at home by a late Marseille goal.

Lucas Ocampos, back from loan spells at Genoa and AC Milan, scored the only goal three minutes from time to hand Marseille their second victory of the season.

Ranieri, back in France after coaching Greece and taking Leicester City to a surprise Premier League title in 2016, had very few options as within the space of 20 minutes, he lost three players to injuries. Samuel Moutoussamy, Valentin Rong+ier and Yacine Bammou all had to come off in the first half.
