Ligue 1: Ribery runs riot in Marseille rout

PARIS, Sept 10 (Reuters) - Franck Ribery produced an outstanding performance as Olympique Marseille claimed back the top spot in the Ligue 1 with a 3-1 victory at arch-rivals Paris St Germain on Sunday.

The French international, who looks set to take over from Zinedine Zidane in the playmaker's role with Les Bleus, set up a goal in a flawless display by the visitors.

'We are very happy, especially for the fans because there is such a rivalry between them and the Parisians,' said Ribery.

'We scored three goals in Paris, we have shown we could do something interesting this season,' he added.

Zidane himself, who was watching in the stands, told French channel Canal Plus he was impressed with Ribery.

'Franck made the difference tonight thanks to his acceleration qualities.'

Marseille, who now have 13 points from five matches, lead Olympique Lyon on goal difference.

The five-times champions perfectly prepared for their Champions League opener against Real Madrid next week with a clinical 2-0 win over Troyes.

At the Parc des Princes, Marseille were the first in action with Ribery a constant threat for the Paris defence.

After eight minutes referee Stephane Bre awarded a penalty for a slight foul by Mario Yepes on Marseille striker Mamadou Niang, who opened the scoring from the spot.

Bre also awarded a penalty kick to the Parisians 14 minutes later after it appeared that Niang had pulled Sammy Traore's shirt in the box.

Portugal striker Pauleta converted to level the match.

Midway through the second half, Niang was brought down in the box by Yepes after being set up by Ribery.

Samir Nasri, a French under-21 international, took the resulting penalty only for Mickael Landreau to save but the 19-year-old midfielder followed up to score in the empty goal.

One minute from time, Ribery outpaced the whole Parisian defence before crossing for Mickael Pagis, who wrapped up Marseille's win.

Earlier on Sunday, 10-man Toulouse fought to a last gasp 2-2 home draw against Nancy.

Midfielder Laurent Battles, who had opened the scoring after 12 minutes, was sent off on 58 minutes.

Nancy, who had equalised through Kim five minutes earlier, went ahead courtesy of a Gaston Crubelo goal on 63 minutes only for Jean-Louis Akpa to grab one point for Toulouse three minutes into stoppage time.

On Saturday, five-times champions Lyon had seized the top spot against Troyes.
