Marseille maintain their winning start to the season in Ligue 1

Andre-Pierre Gignac

An early Andre-Pierre Gignac goal helped Marseille to a 2-0 home win over Evian on Saturday, making it two victories out of two at the start of the Ligue 1 season.

France striker Gignac raced onto a through ball to fire home on 16 minutes for his second goal of the campaign.

Last season's runners-up doubled their lead on 67 minutes through new signing Dimitri Payet's curling finish.

Evian were denied by goalkeeper Steve Mandanda as they wait for a first win.

Payet, who signed from Lille this summer, has enjoyed a good start to life at Marseille having scored twice in last week's 3-1 win at Guingamp.

Marseille are second in the table, behind Lyon, who delivered an impressive attacking performance to win 3-1 at Sochaux on Friday.
