Marseille, France (SportsNetwork.com) - Marseille moved back to the top of the Ligue 1 table on Sunday thanks to a comfortable 3-1 win over Bordeaux at the Stade Velodrome.
Marseille had been knocked back to second place at the start of the weekend courtesy of a 3-2 win over Metz by Paris Saint-Germain on Friday, but coming off a 2-0 loss to PSG before the international break, the club was eager to get off to a good start.
But that positive start didn't quite come about as Bordeaux grabbed the game's opening salvo in the 55th minute.
Despite going down a goal, Marseille rallied to equalize five minutes later through a goal from Mario Lemina and Andre-Pierre Gignac gave his club the lead in the 85th minute with his league leading 11th goal of the campaign.
Marseille then put the result away in the 90th minute when Michy Batshuayi scored his first goal of the season to wrap up all three points.
The result lifts Marseille to 31 points, one clear of PSG at the top of Ligue 1, while Bordeaux drops to fifth place on 24 points from 14 matches played.
Also in France on Sunday, Anthony Mounier and Souleymane Camara scored on either side of the intermission to lift Montpellier to a 2-0 win over Toulouse, while Sunday's final fixture saw Saint Etienne and Nantes play to a scoreless draw.
