Bafetimbi Gomis' second-half strike was enough to earn OM a 1-0 win.

Lyon 3 - 3 Nice

Mario Balotelli's Nice finished the campaign in third spot, despite drawing 3-3 with Olympique Lyon in their final game of the season.

A brace from Alexandre Lacazette and an own goal from Maxime Le Marchand cancelled out Anastasios Donis's brace, but Nice snatched an equaliser in stoppage time through Jean Seri.
