Physically dulled before the international break, Olympique de Marseille resumed with a big success in Angers (0-3) which allows them to temporarily regain the lead in Ligue 1.
We had left theOlympic Marseille on a difficult week, with players sticking out their tongues, coming out of a pitiful defeat against Frankfurt (0-1) and a slow draw against Rennes (1-1).

Two weeks later, after the international break, the Olympians resumed with a precious success on the field of Angers (0-3) this Friday evening, at the start of the 9th day of Ligue 1. But in the absence of Nuno Tavares (suspended), and with Dimitri Payet holder at the expense of Alexis Sanchez in particular (on the bench, spared), Igor Tudor’s men had a lot of trouble getting the machine back on the road.
The first half hour was very ordinary, with a lot of waste for the Phocaeans, and plenty of opportunities for Angers, for Sofiane Boufal (15th), Nabil Bentaleb (18th) or even Adrien Hunou (34th). But OM were liberated by a superb goal from Jonathan Clauss. The former Lensois, who is however one of the players who had to leave for the selection, had a great match in an unusual position as a left piston. His personal achievement put OM on the right track (0-1, 35th).
Clauss decisive on the three goals!
Returning from the locker room, Clauss continued his festival with two assists for Luis Suarez (0-2, 50th) and Gerson (0-3, 59th). And the match was thus folded, despite the good will of the Angevins, who remained on their side on two consecutive successes.

For OM, we should also note the first entry this season of Bamba Dieng (85th), who almost scored at the end of the game (90th). For the young Senegalese as for his club, which temporarily takes the lead in Ligue 1 and remains undefeated in the league (7 wins, 2 draws), this may be the start of a new positive spiral. In any case, it is ideal before a month of October which promises to be particularly busy, and which will begin with an important meeting against Sporting in the Champions League on Tuesday.
