Marseille on Wednesday went top of Ligue 1 table for the first time in five months

Marseille dominated the 77th "clasico" of history by beating (3-0) logically a team of Paris SG never in the game sees Montpellier and escape only at the top of Ligue 1 on Sunday at the close the 15th day.

Immersed in doubt and on the verge of a nervous breakdown before the meeting, Marseille, dating back to 9th place at 9 points in the PSG, have reacted in the best way possible after their defeat in Wednesday's Champions League.

Adding style to the determination, they have a team fold unrecognizable Paris, where Pastore still disappointed.

Between two clubs plagued by internal tensions, the "clasico" has many implications.

For OM, after two defeats in the league and Champions League, it was to regain confidence and resume his way forward to get closer to the top of the table. But the ouster this week of Andre-Pierre Gignac for a violent reaction to his coach was not likely to provide peace of mind.

For its part, the PSG, which was a draw in Bordeaux (1-1) and a home defeat (0-1) against Nancy, had an obligation to take back to the height of the new leader Montpellier.

OM, where Lucho and MBIA were tenured, instead of up and Cheyrou Valbuena, left the game to the Parisians, who combined well. But on their first foray, partners Steve Mandanda would calm the ardor of Paris.

Loïc Rémy, on receipt of a pinpoint, served from the right by the Spanish defender Azpilicueta, slammed a superb head past goalkeeper Sirigu, along its left post (1-0, 9). Remy, no marking, and took advantage of the great kindness of the defense of Paris to put the OM in an ideal position. He scored at the same time the 100th goal against Marseille's arch rival Paris since the first "Clasico" played in 1971.

Author of his seventh goal of the season, Remy had unfortunately left very quickly its partners. Wanting to play a ball head, he fell ill on the ankle and even if it took up the game, should give way in the 31st minute to Jordan Ayew.

Opposite, the Parisians multiplied the wrong choices and approximations, with a misguided and Pastore playing inconvenience.

However, Sissoko would have equalized in the 35th when his shot hit the post was left Mandanda before spinning in front of the line.

The referee whistled the pause while the game became rough and more hooked.

In the second half, despite the efforts of Gameiro, Nene Lead or the Parisians rarely managed to put the defense in trouble Marseilles.

And the hour is the OM who sheltered him, thanks to Morgan Amalfitano. The former Lorient was served in the axis by Ayew and without control, wrong Sirigu a crossfire (2-0, 65).

Stunned, the Parisians would not get up, new Erding and Bodmer in place of Gameiro and Bodmer did not alter the scenario. Unbeaten this season outside the Paris SG then headed to his first defeat, leaving out a leader's chair he had occupied since the 8th day.

OM and drove the point home even when Andre Ayew took over the head center Amalfitano. The ball passed between the legs of Ceara, and the unfortunate Sirigu could only parry the ball, but behind the line (3-0, 83).AFP
