​Marseille record biggest win in 70 years in Coupe de France humiliation

Marseille recorded their biggest victory in 70 years as they destroyed Bourg-en-Bresse 9-0 in the Coupe de France on Tuesday.

Kostas Mitroglou and Lucas Ocampos both netted hat-tricks, with Luiz Gustavo, Dimitri Payet and Clinton N’Jie also on the scoresheet in the remarkable triumph.

It was the first time Marseille had won by a nine-goal margin since they beat Chambery 10-1 in the same competition in 1948.

Amazingly, their nine goals came from only 10 shots on target.

Marseille led 4-0 after only 20 minutes, with Luiz Gustavo, Payet, Ocampos and Mitroglou all scoring.

Mitroglou got his second before the break and Ocampos did likewise three minutes into the second half, before he completed his hat-trick in the 71st minute.
