PARIS (AP) Marseille coach Marcelo Bielsa is feeling "a lot of shame" after four straight defeats plunged the club into freefall.

The 5-3 loss to Lorient at Stade Velodrome on Friday night was the first time since 1980 that Marseille has conceded so many goals at home.

Still in the title race only three weeks ago, Marseille is now in serious danger of missing out on the Champions League and even under pressure to secure a Europa League spot, with Saint-Etienne, Bordeaux and Montpellier pushing hard.
