Mitroglou strikes again in Marseille loss
Greek hitman Kostas Mitroglou scored in the second consecutive Ligue 1 match for Marseille, as his club dropped a dramatic 2:3 home defeat to rivals Lyon.
Having fully recovered from an injury which kept him on the sidelines for the majority of February, the 29-year old Mitroglou has returned with a vengeance. With 84 minutes on the clock and Marseille losing 1:2, Mitroglou climbed highest to nod the ball over the flailing goalkeeper after it had taken a lucky ricochet off a Lyon defender. Mitroglou had been introduced as a substitute midway through the second half and received a yellow card in the final minutes.
However, despite Mitroglou seemingly saving a point for Marseille, the hosts conceded in the dying seconds to drop a 2:3 home loss to Lyon. At the moment, Marseille occupy third place in the Ligue 1 table, trailing leaders PSG by 24 points. Mitroglou possesses five league goals in the season.
