Gignac had a first-half brace during Marseille's French Cup match against Grenoble on Sunday, but the Ligue 1 leaders fell in penalties.

Gignac has been in excellent form this season, as his 12 Ligue 1 goals in 19 appearances rank him behind only Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette (17). If there is a little concern, it's that 10 of Gignac's league goals came before November.
