The kickoff was delayed by 15 minutes after the players were affected in their warmup by tear gas used by the police during a fight between opposing fans outside of the stadium.

OM were quick off the mark, however, as Payet beat Stephane Ruffier from just inside the box.

Radonjic put the result beyond doubt five minutes from fulltime with a low angled shot.

St Etienne are 15th on 28 points.
