Bedoya scores again, beard-less Howard excels

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Alejandro Bedoya scored his second goal of the week to give Nantes a 1-0 win at Marseille in the French Ligue 1. Having shaved his beard, Tim Howard made several big saves to keep Everton in its English Premier League match at first-place Arsenal, which it tied, 1-1. John Brooks made his first start for Hertha Berlin in almost three months in its 2-0 win at Eintracht Braunschweig in a battle of promoted teams.

Nantes' victory moved the Canaries into fourth place, ahead of OM but behind the big three, Paris St. Germain, Lille and Monaco. The result prompted Marseille to fire its coach, Elie Baup.

Despite Everton's edge in play, it was Arsenal that had the best chances in the first half, but Howard stopped shots by Aaron Ramsey from close range and Olivier Giroud.
