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.
