Soccer-Radonjic strikes late as Marseille narrow gap on leaders PSG

PARIS, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Olympique de Marseille’s Nemanja Radonjic struck in the last minute for a 2-1 home win against Brest as they moved within five points of Ligue 1 leaders Paris St Germain on Friday.

Second-half substitute Radonjic found the top corner a minute after Irvin Cardona had cancelled out Bouna Sarr’s second-half opener to put second-placed OM on 28 points from 15 games ahead of PSG’s trip to AS Monaco on Sunday.

The hosts could have won by a bigger margin but Dimitri Payet and Valentin Rongier hit the woodwork in a lively encounter at the Stade Velodrome.

Marseille, who have now won their last four league games, lead third-placed Angers, who have a game in hand and who they will face on Tuesday, by four points. (Reporting by Julien Pretot; Editing by Ken Ferris)
