Montpellier defender Mathieu Deplagne appealed for help after losing a tooth on the pitch during his side’s victory over Marseille.

Deplagne, 25, was hurt late in Friday’s Ligue 1 game and was substituted.

After the match, he was joined by some of Montpellier’s backroom staff to search for the missing tooth but their efforts were in vain.

“Mathieu lost a tooth and we went to look for it, but we couldn’t find it,” Montpellier boss Frederic Hantz said.

Algeria international Ryad Boudebouz scored twice to give Montpellier a 2-0 lead at half-time.

An own goal by keeper Laurent Pionnier reduced the deficit before Steve Mounie sealed the points for the hosts.

Montpellier moved to 12th in the table, level on points with 10th-placed Marseille, who have won once in five Ligue 1 games.

Marseille’s team included winger Florian Thauvin, who is on loan from Newcastle United, and on-loan Tottenham forward Clinton N’Jie.
