    Time:90'
    • MSK Zilina
    • Olympique Marseille
    • 90+2' PEEEP! PEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!!!!!!!! Marseille record a stunning away win in which Andre-Pierre Gignac's hat-trick was the highlight. MSK Zilina were simply awful and they will want to forget tonight's game as quickly as possible.
    • 90+1' Cheyrou overhits a corner to the far post.
    • 90' There will be at least two minutes of additional time.
    • 89' Final minutes until MSK's nightmare is over.
    • 86' MSK HIT THE BAR!!!! It really isn't their night. Slack play from Marseille gives the ball to Zosak. He feeds Majtan inside the penalty area. Mandanda rushes out and Majtan fires towards goal but the ball thunders off the crossbar and out to safety.
    • 85' Into the last five minutes and Marseille are at the same tempo they were at the start. That's quite a shift.
    • 83' Taiwo crosses from the left. Dubravka has to dive full-length to tip it behind as it threatens to drop into the far corner.
    • 81' Gergel wanders offside and the move breaks down.
    • 80' Final 10 minutes. Corner for Marseille but it's cleared. MSK try to break.
    • 77' Marseille nearly grab number eight but a combination of luck and poor finishing denies them. Andre Ayew broke from the left-back position and charged forward. He fed Brandao who tried to cross for Remy. He overhit it. Remy chased it, kept it inside the area but was followed by Dubravka. Remy chipped goalwards where Ayew headed towards goal only for Pecalka to head off the line.
    • 76' SUB FOR MSK: Majtan replaces Ceesay
    • 75' Marseille are continuing to come forward. MSK's misery isn't complete just yet.
    • 73' Marseille's seven-goal haul away from home is another Champions League record.
    • 72' Marseille force a corner on the left. It's cleared.
    • 71' Collective relief for MSK as Gignac leaves the fray. But the damage has been done.
    • 70' SUB FOR MARSEILLE: Brandao replaces Gignac
    • 69' Marseille need Chelsea to be doing them a favour in London against Spartak Moscow. Follow the game here.
    • 68' MSK have a corner but Marseille clear and break. But after Remy's cute turn his shot is blocked and cleared away.
    • 66' Marseille stroke the ball around with ease and their fans are the only noise yuo can hear. It really has been men against boys.
    • 65' I'm bitterly disappointed I don't have my boots with me at the stadium tonight. Surely I could have got a game for Marseille...surely?
    • 64' I think it's fair to point out this result is doing Marseille's goal difference no harm at all.
    • 62' GOAL FOR MARSEILLE!!! Gonzalez plays a one-two with Remy. The midfielder runs into the box, controls on his chest and then rifles the ball into the net through Dubravka. Wowzers.
    • 62' SUBS FOR MARSEILLE: Andre Ayew replaces Valbuena; Taiwo replaces Heinze
    • 60' 30 minutes left. Any guesses on the final score?
    • 59' SUB FOR MSK: Gergel replaces Vladavic
    • 57' It's training ground stuff now from Marseille. If they wish - and they might - we could be in for more goals and more records.
    • 55' The final 40 minutes of this game could last a lifetime for MSK.
    • 53' GOAL FOR MARSEILLE!!! HAT-TRICK FOR GIGNAC!!! How many more?? Azpilicueta is left totally free on the right. He puts it onto Gignac's head six yards out who bravely heads into the top corner.
    • 50' GOAL FOR MARSEILLE!!! High five!!! Did I say sit back?! Not a bit of it. Remy plays in Valbuena down the left hand side beating the offside trap with ease. The little winger makes for the byline then chips it up to the far post where Lucho Gonzalez is waiting four yards out to head into an empty net.
    • 49' MSK are certainly playing at a higher tempo. In fact, it's far to say that Marseille are just sitting back and looking to play out time.
    • 47' Marseille's 4-0 half-time lead is the largest advantage in Champions League history.
    • 47' MSK are surely playing for pride now.
    • 45' The second-half is off and underway.
    • 20.32 HALF-TIME: MSK 0 - 4 MARSEILLE (Gignac 12, 21; Heinze 24; Remy 36)
    • 45'+1 The referee blows his whistle for half-time and boos ring out as the players leave the pitch.
    • 45' There will be a minimum of one minute of added time.
    • 45' CAUTION: Pecalka of MSK for a foul on Gignac.
    • 44' Just a couple of minutes left...
    • 42' MSK get a corner on the right after their best piece of play of the half. Leitner takes and it's cleared.
    • 40' MSK are a beaten side and a few niggling fouls are beginning to creep in. Babatounde piles into the back of Gonzalez. Needless.
    • 39' Despite the score Marseille still look hungry and the final four minutes of the half could be more of the same for MSK.
    • 35' GOAL FOR MARSEILLE!!! Four-midable!!! Loic Remy gets in on the act with a clinical right-foot finish from Heinze's ranging left-wing pass. Game over.
    • 33' Gignac has a chance to grab a first-half hat-trick but he shanks a volley from Azpilicueta's pass well over the bar.
    • 32' SUB FOR MSK: Zosak replaces Vittor
    • 31' Wonderful play from Remy. He turns the MSK defence inside out then flashes a shot at the far post from the right of the area which Dubravka does well to get a hand to. The corner is cleared.
    • 30' 15 minutes to the break and MSK really need to get something. If Marseille were to grab a fourth then this game - if it wasn't already - will be over.
    • 28' At last. MSK show some fight. Ceesay gets down the right and gets the corner from M'bia Etoundi's block. The corner is headed harmlessly over.
    • 26' Strange scenes now. Home fans appear to be setting off fireworks over the pitch and the Marseille players aren't happy about it but the officials don't seem too bothered.
    • 25' I actually fear for MSK. I've seen Marseille blast seven past FC Zurich and they don't look like giving up just yet.
    • 23' GOAL FOR MARSEILLE!!!! What a header!! Cheyrou clips in the corner and Heinze leaps at the near post. He makes a superb connection and flicks his effort into the far corner for a sublime finish. This could get messy for MSK.
    • 23' Remy dances through the MSK defence on the right of the penalty area but the ball is deflected clear for a corner on the right.....
    • 20' GOAL FOR MARSEILLE!!!! Gignac gets his second!!! Kabore plays a simple ball down the middle and inside Sourek. The defender fails to clear the danger and Gignac clips the ball past Dubravka from 15 yards for an easy goal.
    • 17' A bit more composed from MSK now but Angelovic can't make anything of his forward pass.
    • 16' Marseille are knocking the ball around like they own the place. Cheyrou and Kabore are running things and Remy is looking very sharp indeed.
    • 15' MSK get their first corner and Mandanda clears under pressure.
    • 14' MSK need something and quickly. Marseille are rampant and it's that man Gignac who is leading the charge.
    • 12' GOAL FOR MARSEILLE!!!! Easy. As. You. Like. Cheyrou flashed in the free-kick. Gignac got across his marker and got the slightest of touches from six yards out to help the ball into the far corner.
    • 10' Vittor fouls one-time Stoke City target Loic Remy and Marseille have a free-kick 35 yards out on the right...
    • 9' Already Marseille have pushed right up to the halfway line. They may even have already gone to a back three. Cheyrou lashes a shot wide from 20 yards.
    • 8' Valbuena with lovely skill 35 yards out. He rolls Babatounde as if he wasn't there but he shot lacks power and Dubravka saves with ease.
    • 6' MSK are having a nightmare at the moment. If Marseille can nab an early goal it might become a case of how many? As it stands it's very open but MSK look vunerable.
    • 4' First chance of the game and it's Valbuena of Marseille with it. He started the move down the right and played Azpilicueta down the wing to the touchline. His cross wasn't cleared properly and Valbuena lashed a half-volley that just fizzed over the crossbar. Great technique.
    • 4' MSK come forward but the ball trundles through to the very-handy-indeed Steve Mandanda.
    • 2' MSK look a little rattled. Marseille are enjoying lots of early touches. Gignac wins a throw down the left and then forces the game's first corner...Gonzalez takes it...Heinze attacks it but it flys over from his near post header.
    • 2' Valbuena is taken out by Angelovic and Marseille have an early free-kick. It's cleared.
    • 1' We're off with Marseille kicking from right to left. Marseille win an early throw on the left. Heinze takes but Gonzalez can make nothing of it.
    • 19.42 But let's not forget MSK, Vladavic and Vittor are a handful for any team and Diawara will have his hands full this evening.
    • 19.41 It'll be worth watching Andre-Pierre Gignac of Marseille tonight. The much-maligned striker has a lot to prove and tonight is the kind of game where he needs to make himself known.
    • 19.38 Almost time for the off and in typical Slovakian style the chap with the loud speaker is getting the home fans into a frenzy. Great scenes.
    • 19.24 There is another game going on in Group F tonight. Chelsea entertain Spartak Moscow and you can get the latest here.
    • 19.15 Marseille claimed victory in the first encounter between these two teams in Matchday 3. Souleymane Diawara's goal early in the second half settled the match.
    • 19.11 It's a case of now-or-never for both sides tonight as defeat for either team will all but end their hopes of progressing in the competition.
    • 19.09 Referee: Stefan Johannesson (Sweden)
