Olympique de Marseille kept the good start to the season and won once again in the French Championship. With a goal by Gerson, Croatian Igor Tudor’s team beat Auxerre 2-0 this Saturday, away from home, and took the lead in the tournament. Now, the team dries PSG, who face Nantes.
The ex-Flamengo midfielder opened the scoring for Marseille after just seven minutes of play. He took advantage of a kick rebound on Ünder’s beam and, at first, sent a plate with his left-handed to the goal. It was Gerson’s first goal of the season.

Olympique’s second goal came from Sánchez’s feet. In the 38th minute of the second half, he received in the middle of Guendouzi’s area and only supported the nets. He was the Chilean’s third with the French team’s shirt in five games.
Marseille reaches 16 points in six games and takes the lead in Ligue 1. PSG and Lens can still reach it in the score if they win in the round, and Paris would be at the top for having better goal difference. Auxerre are ninth with seven points.
Olympique returns to the field this Wednesday, in London, against Tottenham, in the opening of Group D of the Champions.
