Patrick Vieira's Nice slumped to a fourth defeat in five home league games this season as Morgan Sanson's first-half strike fired Marseille to a 1-0 win in Ligue 1 on Sunday.
It was a laboured performance from Nice, who sit 14th in the table and only two points above the relegation play-off spot, eight points adrift of fourth-placed Marseille.
Vieira may need a good run of results if he is to keep his job long enough to take on former Arsenal and France team-mate Thierry Henry when his side visit Monaco on December 8.
For Marseille, all eyes will now be on next Sunday's clash with arch-rivals and runaway league leaders Paris Saint-Germain at the Velodrome.
Earlier on Sunday, Montpellier moved into third as goals from Gaetan Laborde and Andy Delort sealed a 2-0 win over Bordeaux, while Saint-Etienne drew 1-1 against Rennes.
