In a stunning display of skill and agility, striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang led Olympique de Marseille to a 2-0 triumph over Nantes at the Stade Vélodrome, marking their fifth consecutive win and propelling them to seventh place in the league standings.

Under the guidance of newly appointed Coach Jean-Louis Gasset, Marseille has seen a remarkable turnaround, securing victories in all five matches since his leadership began last month and netting a total of 18 goals during this period.

Aubameyang, known for his celebratory somersaults after scoring, has been in exceptional form, contributing significantly to Marseille's success. The esteemed forward, who previously played for Arsenal and Barcelona, has found the back of the net eight times under Gasset's management.

The match highlights included Aubameyang's opening goal in the 17th minute, following a precise cross from Senegalese winger Ismaïla Sarr. The duo collaborated once more for Aubameyang's second goal in the 79th minute, where he outmaneuvered goalkeeper Alban Lafont on his second attempt.

As Olympique Marseille's leading scorer with 23 goals, including 11 in league play, Aubameyang's remarkable performance positions him and his team in an advantageous spot as they prepare to face their arch-rivals, PSG, on March 31.
