Marseille started the game with cool composure by two goals from goalkeeper Steve Mandanda who was playing as a midfielder. Later Toulon replied with three goals thus taking the lead.
In the second half, Marseille came back with three goals thus winning back the lead.
Delon Armitage however pulled back a few conversions to put Toulon up ahead yet again, but eventually it was Marseille who secured a 31-31 draw late on.
