Marseille went back up to second place in Ligue 1 when a penalty from France international Andre-Pierre Gignac gave them a 1-0 win over Evian.

Gignac's second-half spot-kick, after Dimitri Payet was fouled by Cedric Barbosa, was enough to give Marseille an 11th successive home league win.

Payet volleyed against the bar and Alaixys Romao shot over late on as the hosts went close to adding a second.

Marseille are now one point behind Lyon, who go to Monaco on Sunday.
