Mamadou Niang scored a brace as Marseille completed the double over champions-elect Lyon with a 3-1 victory to maintain their push for the final Champions League spot in Ligue 1.

The Senegal forward and Djibril Cisse scored within the space of two minutes around the half-hour mark to set OM on their way before Lorik Cana´s own goal brought Lyon back into it.

But Niang re-established the two-goal gap at the start of the second half and the hosts held out to return to within three points of third-placed Nancy.
