Gignac was influential as Marseille overcame relegation strugglers FC Metz to kick-off the French football weekend. He scored twice as Marcelo Bielsa’s side leap-frogged AS Saint-Etienne to move up to fourth in the Ligue 1 table.

The international’s first effort—his 100th in the French top flight—came from close range after Grenats keeper Anthony Mfa Mezui spilled the ball.

His second was a finish of pure class, as he chipped the ball over the onrushing keeper after finding himself one-on-one with the Gabonese international.

Following the match, current SC Bastia striker and ex-Liverpool man Cisse took to Twitter to congratulate his former France teammate.

“Bravo my brother,” Cisse began, writing on his @DjibrilCisse account, “[for] passing the mark of 100 goals in Ligue 1.

“[I tip my] hat.”

To date, 33-year-old Cisse is four goals behind Gignac—stuck on 96 goals in Ligue 1, having failed to score in six substitute appearances for the Corsicans this season.
