Olympique Marseille remain second in the French Ligue 1 Overall table after defeating AS Monaco at home, but they are just one point away from Paris Saint-Germain indeed with one less match, so they still have a hope to salvage their UEFA Champions League failure.

The team from Marseille have won the last seven matches and have not been defeated in nine matches at the Ligue 1, although they did lose two of their last three matches at the UEFA Champions League: 0-2 to Porto and 3-0 to Manchester City, and they were eliminated with just 3 points.

Marseille scored very quickly, with the 1-0 scored by Florian Thauvin (FRA) at minute 5 and Darío Benedeto (ARG) with the second at 13′. AS Monaco tried to get close in a good match but could only score by a late 80-minute mark penalty by Wissam Ben Yeder (FRA).
