MONACO — Monaco striker Dimitar Berbatov salvaged a 1-1 draw with Lille in the French league on Saturday after Radamel Falcao was left out of the team's squad amid speculation about his future.

Lille striker Nolan Roux opened the scoring with a half-volley in the 18th minute, but Berbatov equalized from close range in the 61st.

Falcao watched the game from the stands in a black suit, white shirt and red tie. The Colombia striker scored the lone goal in the 1-0 victory over Nantes last weekend but has been linked with a move to Real Madrid, Manchester City or Juventus in the final days of the transfer window.

Lille played without Ivory Coast forward Salomon Kalou, who is courted by German clubs.
