A referee subject to controversy for OM-PSG


The Professional Football League (LFP) has lifted the veil on the referees appointed to officiate this weekend as part of the 11th day of Ligue 1. With OM-PSG on the menu in particular.

A Classic, necessarily, an experienced referee. For the shock IFPSG which is announced on Sunday evening on behalf of the 11e lifting of Ligue 1, the LFP has decided to entrust the management of the game to Benoît Bastien. The person concerned will then officiate for the seventh time in his career in such a poster. His record until then being six Parisian victories.

Beyond this statistic which certainly is not surprising in view of the history between the two clubs over the past ten years, the Marseillais will certainly apprehend this designation for other reasons. This season, Benoît Bastien is not to bring back good memories at OM since he was at the whistle of the match at the Allianz-Riviera, against Nice, on August 22. With the chaotic scenario that we know.

Benoît Bastien, for OM, these are also two very controversial decisions that marked the spirits: a goal from Mitroglou invalidated against PSG in 2018; another refused to Ocampos three years earlier against OL. Each time after very contentious actions, not to mention obvious arbitration errors. Last season, he also refereed the debates between Marseille and Paris at the Vélodrome. With the key a 0-2 victory for PSG, and an expulsion of Payet at the end of the game.
