A goal two minutes from time by Anthony Modeste saw Bordeaux claim a point with a 1-1 draw from this Ligue 1 clash in which Marseille played for 57 minutes with ten men.
The visitors went ahead after just 12 minutes through Lucho Gonzalez before Edouard Cisse was sent off 12 minutes from the break for a dangerous tackle on Jaroslav Plasil.
It appeared the southern France side would hold out for all three points but after 88 minutes Modeste powered home a header to equalise and give Bordeaux their first home point of the season.
Paris St Germain's defensive frailties resurfaced once more as they crashed to a 3-1 defeat at Sochaux on Sunday.
PSG boss Antoine Kombouare demanded an improvement from his backline before the game after watching them lose to Bordeaux last weekend and concede four in the Europa League to Maccabi Tel Aviv on Thursday night.
But again they looked shaky as Sochaux effectively won the game before half-time with three goals. The visitors pulled one back at the start of the second period but any thoughts of a comeback had long since evaporated before Jeremy Clement was sent off late on.
Daniel Niculae's stunning volley set AS Monaco on their way to a 2-0 victory over Auxerre at the Stade Louis II.
Niculae struck six minutes into the second half after Vincent Muratori had dribbled past Adama Coulibaly and set him up. Eight minutes later it was 2-0 after Dieumerci Mbokani had beaten Coulibaly and delivered an inviting cross which Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang converted from close range.
A second-half equaliser by Eden Hazard was enough to see Lille claim a 1-1 draw with Nice - their fourth draw in as many games in Ligue 1. Hazard levelled midway through the second half after Emerse Fa had given the visitors the lead 12 minutes before half-time with a penalty.
