The Nigerian international who was making his first appearance for Nice after his move from Lorient had a decent performance.
Sofiane Diop netted the opening goal in the 36th minute before Gaetan Laborde made it 2-0 with a beautiful finish for Nice.
Malinowski reduced the tally to 2-1 when he scored in the 60th minute to give the team hope of a comeback. However, Billal Brahimi scored for Nice to take the game beyond Marseille’s reach.
The Nigerian star was later substituted in the 73rd minute for Barkley after an impressive display.
