/ 0

In the absence of the Nigerian, the Phocaeans halted the impressive streak of Paulo Sousa’s men at Stade Velodrome

Samuel Kalu was missing in action as Bordeaux bowed 3-1 to Olympique Marseille in Sunday’s French topflight encounter.

Despite going up at half-time, the Girondins got deflated by a resurgent Phocaens in the second half at Stade Velodrome.

After a dreary start to the game, Yacine Adli put the visitors ahead in the 31st minute after profiting from a one-two passing moves from Nicolas de Preville and Josh Maja to rifle past Steve Mandanda.

However, Marseille woke from their slumber in the second-half to secure maximum points thanks to AllinFootballs from Jordan Amavi, Morgan Sanson and Nemanja Radonjic.

Maja, who got his first career hat-trick against Nimes saw every minute of action but could not prevent Paulo Sousa’s side from surrendering their five-match unbeaten run.
