Stunning, the Marseillais make the hole! – Debrief and NOTES of the players (OM 3-2 FCN) – Maxifoot

Winner of FC Nantes (3-2) after being behind twice, Olympique de Marseille carried out an excellent operation this Wednesday in Ligue 1 by consolidating their place as runner-up with 6 points ahead of their pursuers.Payet carried OM with a double from the penalty spot. After scoring twice, Olympique de Marseille showed character by overthrowing FC Nantes (3-2) on Wednesday during the 33rd day of Ligue 1. Beyond temporarily delaying the coronation of PSG, this hard-fought success above all allows the Marseille club to carry out an excellent operation by taking a 6-point lead over its competitors in second place in the standings. Girotto weighs down the atmosphere After a first alert in the Marseille area with Geubbels who was too short to take a cross, OM replied with a free kick from Payet deflected fingertips by Lafont. Over the minutes, the Marseille possession turned into real pressure on the opposing goal. Launched in the back of the defence, Harit had a goal ball but, hampered by Coco, the Moroccan lost his duel against Lafont, then Lirola’s cross passed in front of the goal without finding a taker… Compact, the Nantes block was not far from cracking. And yet, totally against the course of the game, the Canaries took the lead on a header from Girotto, completely lonely from a corner (0-1, 26th). Payet gallise, Nantes takes the lead! From then on, Jorge Sampaoli’s men increased their pressure. If Bakambu missed the equalizing ball on a shot that was not straight enough, Kamara ended up getting a penalty for an obvious mistake by Pallois. Payet was responsible for transforming it to equalize (1-1, 39th). Except that OM were absolutely not calm afterwards and Coco immediately put the visitors back in the lead with a volley on a badly cleared ball (1-2, 41st). A real blow to the head of the Marseillais, who were nevertheless convincing in the game but less effective… the equalizer (2-2, 55th). Determined to win, OM pushed on and, after failures from Bakambu then Milik, entered the game for their big comeback and defeated by Lafont, Harit ended up breaking through the opposing wall, without celebrating his goal against his training club ( 3-2, 75th). If Lopez had to intervene in two stages against Bukari to preserve the advantage, OM won a deserved success against Nantes reduced to ten in the last moments after the expulsion of Coco. Score of the match: 7/10 With 5 goals scored, the Stade Vlodrome was treated to a show! Even if the Marseille defense made two big mistakes and even if the two Nantes penalties were avoidable, we witnessed an open and pleasant game played at a good pace in a good atmosphere. found in full surface, Girotto, totally lonely, who took over with a powerful left header from Lopez (0-1, 26th). – On the right side of the surface, Pallois intervened late and struck Kamara’s foot. Logical penalty. Payet transforms him into a force low to the ground despite a Lafont starting from the right side (1-1, 39th). who resumes powerfully with a half-volley which leaves Lopez no chance (1-2, 41st). – On the right of the surface, Gerson makes a hook which traps Fabio, who tackles him late. Payet transforms him again by taking Lafont on the opposite foot (2-2, 55th). – After a one-two with Payet, Gerson is served on the left side of the surface. The Brazilian temporizes and crosses back for Harit (3-2, 75th). Player NOTES Maxifoot has awarded a note (out of 10) comments on each player. The man of the match: Dimitri Payet (7.5/10) In good captain, the attacking midfielder showed great composure in this match by scoring twice on two penalties which enabled OM to equalize each time. The Habs also proved to be interesting in the use of the ball and he is the penultimate passer inspired on the goal of Harit. Author also of defensive returns which did good.MARSEILLE: Pau Lpez (5): lined up in goal for OM for the second time in a row, the Spaniard had a frustrating match for a long time, losing on the only two shots executives of the people of Nantes, without his responsibility being called into question. But the goalkeeper is decisive in the end against Bukari. Pol Lirola (5): favorite Rongier, the right side has shown a face in progress. Rather applied defensively despite some hazardous clearances, the Spaniard offered an interesting and intelligently combined offensive contribution. Author of a dangerous 0-0 cross. Replaced in the 86th minute by Valentin Rongier (not rated). William Saliba (4.5): solid in the duels, the central defender did not concede anything against the Nantes attackers. But the Habs are not exempt from any reproach on the second opposing goal with its too soft clearance and in the axis. Very interesting on his raises. Duje Caleta-Car (5): an uneventful match for the central defender who made his physical qualities speak for themselves to take over the Nantes attackers. Luan Peres (4): in wanting to save a touch, the left side misses and concedes the corner which leads to the opening of the Nantes score… Despite some approximate placements, the Brazilian had the merit of raising his head afterwards by closing his lane rather well. Replaced in the 86th minute by Pape Gueye (not rated). Matto Guendouzi (5): without being bad, the midfielder seemed a little inside this evening and he did not display the energy that we usually know him . The Habs broke the opposing lines several times but not with his usual intensity. Boubacar Kamara (7): the midfielder was once again invaluable, whether through his defensive returns, his pressing or his well-felt raises. A successful match for the future Senegalese international, who also obtained the 1-1 penalty. Gerson (7): the image of his hook which allows him to obtain the second penalty then his very clean decisive pass for Harit, the Brazilian was having a good night. The midfielder hit a lot to try to make the difference and he did not count his efforts. Amine Harit (7): author of the winning goal, the attacking midfielder had the class not to celebrate it against his club former. Riding on his current form, the Moroccan played a full match, with great availability, good shifts and runs behind the opposing defense. Too bad he loses his face–face with Lafont 0-0. Replaced in the 90th minute by Sead Kolasinac (not rated). Cdric Bakambu (4): preferred Milik, the striker did not show the same efficiency as the Pole. If the Congolese was sharp and inspired in his calls, he however failed in the last gesture and notably missed an equalizing ball 1-1 from a tight angle. Replaced in the 69th minute by Arkadiusz Milik (not noted), back from injury and defeated by Lafont on his only opportunity. Dimitri Payet (7.5): read the comment above. NANTES: Alban Lafont (4): with three goals conceded, the bill is dirty for the goalkeeper, who lost on two penalties. With his good outing against Bakambu 0-0 then his stoppage against Milik in the second period, the goalkeeper did the job but without being as decisive as usual to save his team.Sebastien Corchia (3): complicated match for the piston right, who had trouble cutting the Gerson-Payet link and whose offensive contribution was almost non-existent…Dennis Appiah (4): author of muscular interventions at the start of the game, the right defender had more trouble in as the game went on, intervening more and more often late. Andrei Girotto (5.5): author of the opener with a header, the central defender repelled a few hot balls without however displaying as much authority as his includes Pallois.Nicolas Pallois (6): a contrasting match for the central defender, overall author of boss interventions in the area and who also performs a superb cross from the outside of the foot on the 2nd goal of the Canaries. But his penalty conceded against Kamara tarnishes his record. Replaced in the 70th minute by Kalifa Coulibaly (not rated). Marcus Coco (5.5): expelled at the end of the game for a second yellow card, the left piston spoils a bit of a rather interesting evening with his goal before the break and his decisive return to Harit 0-0. Ludovic Blas (4): an unexciting game for the attacking midfielder who generally struggled to exist and be decisive in the area that counts. Replaced in the 46th minute by Fabio (3), who concedes the second opposing penalty in a largely avoidable way…Samuel Moutoussamy (5.5): the midfielder made the warrior match expected of him and the Congolese tears himself away in particular to recover the ball which leads to the 2-1 goal for his team. Wylan Cyprien (6): his quality on set pieces made the difference and his superbly struck corner allowed Girotto to open the scoring. More neutral in the game.Moses Simon (4): the winger did lead a few counterattacks but he was not as sharp as usual in his register while percussion. Replaced in the 46th minute by the sharpest Osman Bukari (5), defeated by Lopez on Nantes’ best chance in the second act. Willem Geubbels (4): favorite Kolo Muani and surprise from the starting lineup, the striker did not not justify the choice of his coach and he was too short on his rare opportunities. Replaced in the 70th minute by Quentin Merlin (not rated).+ Find the results and the Ligue 1 standings on Maxifoot And for you, who were the best and worst players of the match?
