Swiss Super League
Young Boys missed the chance to go three points clear at the top of the Super League standings after being held to a goalless draw at St Gallen - although they did at least manage to end a run of three successive defeats.
The Berne-based side, having started the season with five consecutive victories, had been beaten by Grasshoppers, Basle and Lucerne in their previous three matches but they stopped the rot at AFG Arena, even if they were unable to get back to winning ways.
The result leaves Young Boys a point clear of defending champions Basle, who play Thun on Wednesday, while St Gallen remain four points behind in fifth.
French Ligue 1
Marseille ended a run of four games without a win as they hung on to see off St Etienne 2-1 in Ligue 1.
All three goals came in the space of 11 first-half minutes, with Benjamin Mendy and Giannelli Imbula giving Marseille an early 2-0 lead before Faouzi Ghoulam pulled one back from the penalty spot in the 32nd minute.
Given Marseille's recent frustrations, nerves set in as they missed a series of chances to kill the game off, but they did enough to take three points which put them level with leaders Monaco, at least until Wednesday evening.
In Tuesday night's other game, Evian's three-match unbeaten run came to an end as Lille claimed a conformable 3-0 win at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
Salomon Kalou put the home side ahead after 13 minutes and Evian goalkeeper Jesper Hansen doubled that lead with an own-goal just after the half-hour.
Substitute Ronny Rodelin had only been on the pitch two minutes when he bagged a third with 18 minutes remaining as Lille claimed a second consecutive win.
David Elm scored a 76th-minute winner to earn Kalmar a 2-1 victory at Osters in the Allsvenska.
Elm's goal came seven minutes after Osters had drawn level, Manz Karlsson's strike for the visitors cancelling out Ismael Silva's second-minute opener for Kalmar.
Kalmar climbed up to fifth spot with the win, while Osters remain just a point above the bottom three after suffering a third successive loss.
