Marseille earned a club record-equaling eighth consecutive league win Sunday, beating Toulouse 2-0 at the Stade Velodrome to move seven points clear at the top of Ligue 1 .First-half goals from Nicolas Nkoulou and the in-form Andre-Pierre Gignac proved enough for Marcelo Bielsa's side to take all three points as OM matched their previous record for consecutive league victories set in 1937 and in 1998 .OM, who have won every game since starting the campaign with a draw and a defeat, are seven points above reigning champions Paris Saint-Germain and Bordeaux, who were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Caen Sunday afternoon.Caen equalized 13 minutes from the end when substitute Herve Bazile shaped to cross from the left and wrong-footed goalkeeper Cedric Carrasso, who had come off his line, before rolling the ball into the gaping goal.
