Diabate scored in the 70th and 89th minutes of Saturday's 4-1 win over Sochaux.

Diabate was also partially responsible for a third goal as he was hauled down in the box by Sochaux goalkeeper Simon Pouplin, which led to Henri Saivet's successful penalty try in the 21st minute. The Malian striker now has four goals in his last four Ligue 1 matches, taking 19 shots over that span. He'll look to keep it going against Lyon on October 20 after the international break.
