Zapping Our Mondial Bayern: an ultra favorite for the final victory?
We were promised a great match! We were not disappointed! OM and RC Lens have surrendered one after the other! The first thirty minutes were Lensoises while the Artésiens led 2-0. However, this Olympique de Marseille has resources and came back in a quarter of an hour thanks to a double from Dimitri Payet. The two teams then returned tied for the locker room (2-2).
The second act, which promised to be hot, was! And it was the Marseillais who were attacking and putting pressure on the cages of Jean-Louis Leca. Ünder (56th), Dieng (56th), Lirola (57th) all missed immense opportunities. Failures that allowed the Lensois to regain hope while Kalimuendo (59th) and Saïd (68th) stood out. However, unlike the Olympians, Lens would eventually materialize while the same Saïd put the visitors ahead of the score (71st). Jorge Sampaoli’s men subsequently struggled to get back into it. Stunned, they could even have conceded a fourth goal if Pau Lopez had not interposed in front of Florian Sotoca (81st).
This setback is the first conceded by OM this season but this defeat is also Jorge Sampaoli’s first at the Vélodrome. As a consequence of the standings, it was Lens which dispossessed Marseille of second place. The Marseille club is now 3rd.
What a game ! Olympique de Marseille lost for the first time this season against Racing Club de Lens (2-3). Led 2-0 and then finally back to 2-2, OM finally cracked and lost their second place to their opponents in the evening.
