Marseille crashed out of the French Cup to semi-professional fourth-tier side Canet Roussillon as the minnows stunned the Ligue 1 side with a 2-1 victory in the last-32 on Sunday.
Stand-in Marseille coach Nasser Larguet named a strong side but Jeremy Posteraro opened the scoring in the 21st minute for the hosts, before Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik restored parity seven minutes before the interval.
However, Yohan Bai scored the winner in the 71st minute when breaking into the box and lifting the ball over the goalkeeper, and the final whistle was greeted with wild celebrations.
