Michy Batshuayi scored Marseille's third goal with a minute left

Marseille struck twice in the closing five minutes to overcome Bordeaux and return to the top of Ligue 1.

Marcelo Bielsa's side lost top spot when Paris St-Germain won on Friday and fell behind to Thomas Toure's finish.

But Mario Lemina nodded Marseille level on the hour and Andre-Pierre Gignac thrilled the Stade Velodrome with another header five minutes from time.

Michy Batshuayi tapped in with a minute to play to seal a sixth straight home win in a thrilling finale.

His simple finish sparked relief - as if Toure and Wahbi Khazri had shown more composure with chances when the score was at 1-1, Bordeaux could have snatched a first win at Marseille since 2008.

Ginac's 11th league goal of the season punished their poor finishing and Bordeaux slipped to fifth in the league behind Nantes, who drew 0-0 with St-Etienne earlier in the day.
