Marseille must use home advantage, says Gignac

Andre-Pierre-Gignac-360x270Olympique Marseille could be top of Ligue 1 if they had not collapsed in their last two home games, striker Andre-Pierre Gignac said, warning his team mates that they could not afford any more home losses.

Third-placed Marseille, tied on 35 points with leaders Paris St Germain, host eighth-ranked St Etienne on Sunday having won one of their last five home league games.

While they have the French league’s best away record with seven victories from 10 games, including the last three, they were thrashed 4-1 by Olympique Lyon and 3-0 by Lorient in their last two home encounters.

“We should have more points. We collapsed in some games. I can’t explain that,” Gignac, who scored a superb goal to earn his side a 1-0 win at Toulouse last weekend, told the club website (www.om.net).
