Marseille is now in the second position on the Ligue 1 table after enjoying a promoting win against Guingamp on Sunday at the Stade Velodrome.
Dimitry Payet had scored a wonderful left volley from a long distance in the second half game.
There were also other two goals from another Florin Thauvin, Payet’s fellow France international that was part of the squad that won the World Cup. An injury had kept Payet from the moments of the World Cup, but his goal made the spectacle of the game.
Marseille had started off dull in the game against a team that boasted of a strong defense initially. Although the situation later changed with some technical modifications the manager of Marseille Rudi Garcia made on his side.
Payet had confessed that the players received a bit of scolding from the manager in the locker room and everybody sat up.
“We got kicked in the butt at halftime and we woke up,” Payet said, according to Mail Online.
