Marseille beats Dijon 2-0 to end losing streak

PARIS (AP) – Marseille beat Dijon 2-0 at home on Sunday to finally get back to winning ways after losing the last four games.

Marseille lost twice in the league and twice in the Europa League to Lazio, tumbling out of the European competition at the group stage this week after reaching last year’s final.

After conceding 10 goals in those four games, Marseille finally kept a clean sheet this time.

Center half Adil Rami was involved in both goals. In first-half injury time, Dimitri Payet’s corner was headed on by Rami and winger Lucas Ocampos sent the ball in at the back post.

Payet’s cross led to the second goal in the 85th minute, headed in from close range by Rami following a scramble in the penalty area.

Marseille moved above Nice into sixth place.

Also Sunday, imposing striker Emiliano Sala moved to the top of the scoring charts with 11 goals as midtable Nantes drew 1-1 at Rennes.

Later, runaway leader Paris Saint-Germain was looking for its 13th straight league win at struggling Monaco.
