94th minute winner keeps Marseille’s Ligue 1 title hopes alive.
90′ [1 – 0] R. Fanni
Rod Fanni’s 94th-minute goal kept Marseille’s Ligue 1 title challenge alive with a hard-earned victory over Valenciennes at the Stade Velodrome.
Starting the weekend eight points adrift of leaders Paris St Germain, Marseille knew they could not afford another slip after a disappointing run of form since the winter break.
And just when it seemed they would be frustrated again, Fanni beat his man to fire a low shot into the goal and relieve the pressure.
The win sends Marseille into second place – at least until Lyon face a tricky trip to Bordeaux tomorrow.
