Olympique Marseille geared up for their midweek Champions League clash at Chelsea with a 2-1 home win over Sochaux on Saturday.

A superb Taye Taiwo goal and a clinical finish by Lucho Gonzalez were enough for the Ligue 1 champions although Nicolas Maurice-Belay reduced the arrears for Sochaux 15 minutes from time.

Marseille, who travel to Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, moved up to fifth, four points adrift of leaders Stade Rennes, 2-1 winners at Nice.

Later on Saturday second-placed St Etienne travel to Olympique Lyon who are struggling in 18th place.
