Marseille secures victory over Lyon in rescheduled match following bus attack

The latest victory secured by Marseille in Ligue 1 has once again highlighted the impressive performance of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. With one goal and two assists, Aubameyang played a pivotal role in Marseille’s 3-0 defeat of Lyon, marking their third consecutive win in all competitions. The rescheduled match, which was initially postponed due to violence, was played in a fervent yet peaceful atmosphere. The win has brought new hope to both Marseille and Lyon, two historically successful French clubs, as they seek to improve their standing in the league.

Aubameyang Leads Marseille to 3-0 Win over Lyon

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the star of the show as Marseille secured a third consecutive victory by defeating last-place Lyon 3-0 in Ligue 1 action on Wednesday. Aubameyang contributed a goal and two assists in the dominating performance.

Marseille quickly took control of the rescheduled game at the Stade Velodrome, putting Lyon under pressure from the start. The match took place in a fervent but peaceful atmosphere, with Lyon fans not allowed to travel to the game.

Portuguese striker Vitinha opened the scoring for Marseille in the 20th minute, followed by Michael Amir Murillo adding a second goal just four minutes later, both from Aubameyang’s contributions. Aubameyang then wrapped up the victory with his own goal in the 54th minute, capping off an impressive performance.

Aubameyang’s standout showing comes after a mediocre start since joining this summer, with a hat trick against Ajax in the Europa League last week and another goal against Rennes over the weekend.

The win moved Marseille to eighth place in the standings, while Lyon sits at the bottom of the league with just one win and nine losses in 14 matches. Both clubs, traditionally successful in French football, have struggled this season.
