Paris (France) (AFP) – Florian Thauvin struck a late winner as Marseille twice came from behind to beat struggling Troyes 3-2 in Ligue 1 on Sunday and stay in the hunt for a Champions League place.

Marseille were reeling after Samuel Grandsir headed Troyes ahead with just 37 seconds gone at the Stade de l’Aube, but Clinton Njie’s scuffed effort soon pulled the visitors level.

Paris (AFP) – Brittany side Lorient’s stay in France’s Ligue 1 came to an end after 11 years on Sunday as they lost a play-off against second-tier Troyes.

The 0-0 draw at Lorient’s Stade du Moustoir was not enough for them to overturn a 2-1 defeat in the first leg on Thursday, meaning Troyes are promoted back to the top flight after a one-year absence.
