Bottom of the league Nantes prevented Marseille going top on Sunday with a stunning 2-1 victory.
Georges Eo took the reins for his first game in charge of Les Canaris since Serge Le Dizet was fired earlier in the week.
The Ligue 1 strugglers were ahead on 38 minutes through Dimitrie Payet's (pictured) strike, before Guillaume Norbert (48) doubled the lead soon after the restart.
Mamadou Niang pulled one back for the visitors after the home side had Mauro Cetto sent off for two bookable offences, but they were not to be denied a remarkable triumph on the night.
Nantes have now moved level with Rennes in 15th position, while l'OM remain second.
Lens meanwhile moved up to third in Ligue 1 with their victory over Monaco.
There was only one goal in it at The Felix Bollaert, which arrived after just five minutes.
Referee Tony Chapron awarded a penalty to the home side and Brazilian Ferreyra Jussie stepped up to rifle the ball home.
While the win elevates Lens up the table, the defeat sees the Principality outfit drop into the relegation zone as their desperate season continues.
