Rudi Garcia's men came from behind to claim all three points in a difficult encounter

A good week continued for Marseille in a nervy comeback win against ESTAC Troyes on Sunday. Two late goals saw OM claim three points and stay in touch for a podium place.

After the euphoria on Thursday against RB Leipzig, Rudi Garcia made a few changes. In came Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, Clinton Njie and Valere Germain with all three benched for Thursday.

And whatever mental state OM came with to Troyes, it had an adverse effect. After just 37 seconds, Samuel Grandsir delivered a looping header into Yohann Pele’s top corner to give the hosts a shock lead.

Since OM had also conceded early on Thursday before mounting an incredible comeback, not many were concerned. And their patience was rewarded 10 minutes later as Clinton Njie hauled OM level.

OM struggled in the first half against a stubborn Troyes side, and the hosts reclaimed the lead just after the break as veteran Benjamin Nivet made it 2-1.

With Lyon winning comfortably, the onus was on OM to win to keep in touch with their rivals for 3rd. And despite a contentious penalty call not whistled on Florian Thauvin - which saw Rudi Garcia sent to the stands - OM stepped on the gas in the final stages.

Kostas Mitroglou equalised from the bench, picking up a pass from Dimitri Payet and turning his defender expertly before striking past Zelazny on 75 minutes.

And with 4 minutes to go, Florian Thauvin claimed the points for OM with a neat volley from Jordan Amavi’s cross that sailed into the goal.

OM held on through nervy moments to claim the 19th Ligue 1 win of the season. We remain 4th, but level on points with Lyon as the race for third continues.
