2017-18 French Ligue 1, Regular Season
  • Dimitri Payet (55' PEN)
  • Florian Thauvin (74')

Caen 0-2 Marseille

Florian Thauvin captured the limelight once more as Marseille won 2-0 at Caen in Ligue 1.
Last week against Rennes the former Newcastle man scored one goal, made another, missed a penalty and hit the crossbar from 50 yards.
And this time around he clinched OM's win when his first effort from 25 yards was blocked back to him and he curled home a beautiful follow-up from the edge of the 'D'.
Caen's Ivan Santini had a goal disallowed for offside in a first half otherwise light on goalmouth action but featuring three bookings.
Marseille took the lead 10 minutes after half-time through Dimitri Payet's penalty, after Bouna Sarr was clumsily chopped down by Vincent Bessat.
Thauvin then made sure of the points in style as Marseille returned to second place in the table ahead of Lyon's clash with runaway leaders Paris St Germain on Sunday.
