OM ruined everything again

Saved by its posts in the first period then at 11 against 10 in the second, OM were unable to score against FC Metz and are content with a draw (0-0), Sunday noon at the Stade Vélodrome.

Another melting Vélodrome, more frustration … Only two and a half days after its intense Europa League shock against Lazio (2-2), Thursday evening, theIF, opposed to FC Metz this Sunday noon, did not manage to win a 7th victory in 13 days of Ligue 1 (0-0). A bad operation for the Ciel et Blancs, who are in 4th place in the standings, with one point less than RC Lens, 2nd.

For the occasion, Jorge Sampaoli (suspended and absent from the sidelines) relaunched Steve Mandanda in goals, after 13 matches as a lining for Pau Lopez, and the 2018 world champion was saved twice by his posts in the first period, each time on strikes from Thomas Delaine (6th and 33rd)!

Luis Henrique and Milik miss each other

OM took a little time to be dangerous and for good reason, Mattéo Guendouzi played 6 in the absence of Boubacar Kamara and the usual “substitutes” Pol Lirola, Gerson and Luis Henrique have not been good. The Spanish side came out at half-time, Gerson lacked genius in the game and the young Brazilian winger notably spoiled two great opportunities (29th, 48th). Catastrophic…

But the executives of the OM have also failed. While Dimitri Payet shaken the bar (23rd), Arkadiusz Milik then missed a great opportunity (30th). The Garnets found themselves at 10 in the 56th minute, after a kick from Jemerson on the knee of Payet, but the Marseillais again stumbled on Alexandre Oukidja, despite the good entry of Konrad de la Fuente on the left and opportunities for Milik (80th) and Cengiz Ünder (81st).

The 9 minutes of additional time (the Messins having regularly gained time) did not change anything and OM lost a lot of ground in the race for the podium. The Marseille team will resume Ligue 1 with an Olympico against Lyon, in two weeks at Groupama Stadium …
