Marseille record 14-year first in Ligue 1 after seeing off struggling Strasbourg

Marseille became the first team to win a Ligue 1 match with just one shot since 2006-07, following their 1-0 victory over Strasbourg.

Morgan Sanson's goal with 18 minutes remaining was all that separated Marseille and struggling hosts Strasbourg on Friday.

Marseille scraped past Strasbourg, becoming the first Ligue 1 side to prevail despite only managing one shot since Opta started analysing the competition 14 years ago.

Strasbourg tallied nine shots throughout the 90 minutes, with two on target.

After back-to-back Champions League losses, Marseille returned to winning ways to move fourth in Ligue 1, three points behind leaders and titleholders Paris Saint-Germain.

Marseille have won three consecutive Ligue 1 matches, while Andre Villas-Boas' side are unbeaten in six games.
