Struggling for form and a place in the team all season long, Mitroglou has found it tough going during his debut campaign with Marseille. Amazingly, before this match, the 29-year old had not scored in Ligue 1 for 89 days. 

Mitroglou was introduced as a substitute after 69 minutes against Metz, getting on the scoresheet just 360 seconds later. Dimitri Payet escaped the Metz defence, decided to feed the onrushing Mitroglou, and the latter calmly slotted the ball into the empty net. The Greek now has two goals in this Ligue 1 season, while Marseille are second in the table behind PSG.
