Arkadiusz Milik scored a hat trick as Marseille came from two goals down to beat Angers 5-2 on Friday and move into second place in Ligue 1.

Angers went into a 2-0 lead after 11 minutes with goals from Angelo Fulgini and Nabil Bentaleb, who signed last month from Schalke 04, but Marseille were level by the 21st minute after Milik and Gerson were on target.

The Poland striker, who had scored one league goal this season before Friday's match, then put the home team ahead in the 70th minute and completed his hat trick eight minutes later.

Cengiz Under scored Marseille's fifth in the final five minutes.

Marseille advanced to 43 points, which is 10 behind leaders Paris Saint-Germain, who are away at champions Lille on Sunday.
