Ligue 1: OM delays the title of PSG, Strasbourg achieves a big blow against Rennes, OL still disappoints – Foot Mercato

There were 5 games left in this 33rd day and not the least since PSG, OL, OM and Stade Rennais were playing simultaneously. Honor to the leader who could be crowned today in the event of a better result than Marseille. Before thinking about the party, Pochettino had to compose without the many absentees (Verratti, Kimpembe, Messi, Kurzawa, Draxler, Paredes, Herrera, Diallo injured or Neymar suspended) and took the opportunity to experiment with a three-way defense with Marquinhos, Ramos and Kehrer . There was not much suspense in this meeting. After the undoubtedly serious knee injury of Boufal (12th), the Parisians took the advantage without forcing thanks to Mbappé (28th) then Ramos (45th +2). The opportunities multiplied after returning from the locker room and it was Marquinhos who gave an even more comfortable lead (77th). Paris won 3-0, finished at ten after the clumsy expulsion of Michut (90th + 2) but Paris will wait. The continuation after this publicity Because at the same time, the OM managed to delay the 10th title of champion of France of the PSG. The Phocaeans ended up winning 3-2 but they were mistreated at the Vélodrome for the reception of Nantes. Without Milik at kick-off but with Payet, Bakambu and Harit, they failed to convert their first chances signed by the Congolese (11th and 29th) and the Moroccan (16th). The Canaries then took the opportunity to open the scoring by Girotto from a corner (26th) only by dint of perseverance, Payet equalized from the penalty spot (36th). A short-lived joy as the visitors quickly regained the advantage through Coco (41st). Determined to return, Marseille increased the pressure, equalized on a new penalty from Payet (55th) and even led to the score by Harit (75th). The end of the game was a bit odd and on a false rhythm, but OM did a very good job, taking a six-point lead over their trio of pursuers. Superb operation for OM and Strasbourg, OL almost say goodbye to Europe In this trio, we find Monaco but above all the players in this duel between Strasbourg and Rennes. Carried by the public on fire from La Meinau, Racing quickly took control on a goal from Diallo (4th). A good start then not much for the locals, well moved by enterprising Bretons. The chances were linked by Tait (11th), Traoré (19th) then Terrier (27th), Sels also worked, before being beaten after the break by Martin Terrier (54th). It took this equalization to wake up the Alsatians. The latter ended this meeting better and after attempts by Ajorque (63rd), Nyamsi (66th) and Gameiro (71st), Ajorque restored a definitive advantage to his team (77th). Defeated 2-1, the Rennais fall from above and find themselves tied with their evening opponents. Europe already seemed complicated to reach for OL, it is now almost inaccessible. Only a result in Brest could still maintain hope, but the Gones offered a performance in the image of their season, irregular and without control (2-1 defeat). Led by a penalty from Mounié, Lyon came back late in this part thanks to the inevitable Dembélé (72nd) only in stride, Brest regained the lead on a header from Cardona (74th). 8th and 7 points behind Monaco, the last virtually qualified for a continental cup, OL will probably not be European next season. Because Lens also passed him thanks to his 2-0 victory over Montpellier this evening. Pereira Da Costa (37th) and Ganago (75th) are the blood and gold scorers of the evening. The Ligue 1 classification can be found here.
