Payet inspires Marseille to first-leg win over Salzburg

Florian Thauvin

Dimitri Payet set up both goals as Marseille beat Austria’s RB Salzburg 2-0 in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final at Stade Velodrome.

The Ligue 1 side have won eight of their nine games at home in this season’s competition.

Florian Thauvin headed their opener from ex-West Ham forward Payet’s free-kick and Cameron winger Clinton Njie doubled the lead from a Payet pass.

Fredrik Gulbrandsen hit the post for the Austrian Bundesliga leaders.
