Marseille kept pace with Monaco in Le Championnat thanks to a comfortable win over Bastia.

The Corsicans made the trip to Stade Velodrome looking to cause an upset but they never recovered from a two-goal blast early in the first half.

Didier Drogba, fresh from his midweek hat-trick in the Champions League, skipped clear before rounding Nicolas Penneteau to score the opener.

Steve Marlet then headed a second on 19 minutes as Marseille assumed control.

Frederic Nee brought Bastia back into the game with a fine goal on 49 minutes, but this only acted as a spur to l'OM who restored their two-goal cushion when Rudolf Skacel converted following good play from Marlet on 65 minutes.
