Soccer-Super sub Radonjic salvages a point for Marseille

PARIS, Dec 14 (Reuters) - Olympique de Marseille substitute Nemanja Radonjic struck again to salvage a 1-1 Ligue 1 draw at Metz on Saturday but even his late intervention failed to prevent the end of his side’s six-game winning streak.

Serbian midfielder Radonjic scored his fourth goal in five games — all after coming off the bench — to cancel out Opa Nguette’s opener.

OM Substitute keeper Yohann Pele, who replaced the injured Steve Mandanda in the first half, saved a penalty after the break to maintain his team’s hopes in a balanced encounter

It put second-placed OM on 35 points from 18 matches, four behind leaders Paris St Germain, who have two games in hand.

Lille are third on 31 points after beating Montpellier 2-1 at home on Friday.

Metz, who have not won in their last eight league matches, are now 17th in the table with 16 points from 18 games. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Ian Chadband)
