Rafael helps Lyon to 1-1 draw with Monaco in French league

MONACO (AP) -- Rafael scored a late equalizer to give Lyon a 1-1 draw against 10-man Monaco on Friday in the French league.

Mario Pasalic put the hosts ahead in the 39th minute before former Manchester United defender Rafael scored with six minutes left.

Monaco dropped to 10 men in the 65th when its 21-year-old Brazilian defender Wallace was sent off.

Lyon is provisionally fifth with 16 points from 10 matches -- two points ahead of mid-table Monaco.

Earlier Friday, Paris Saint-Germain winger Angel Di Maria was left out of the squad for Saturday's French league game at Bastia.

The three-time defending champions did not give any reason for Di Maria's absence.

PSG has a five-point lead over second-place Angers.
