After the shock Nice, the beautiful game. At the end of a successful performance, Olympique de Marseille quite easily beat Saint-tienne (3-1), this Saturday, as part of the 4th day of Ligue 1.

Guendouzi lights the Vlodrome, Kolodziejczak turns it off
In a packed Vlodrome, the game started at a mile an hour. Mandanda stepped in in front of Bouanga as Green fought off a Rongier strike from close range. Dominators, the Marseillais exerted a constant pressing and managed to draw the opposing lines. It was also on a long opening of Payet to nder that the light came, since Guendouzi, served by De la Fuente, found the fault in an extraordinary atmosphere (1-0, 23rd).
Surprised, the Greens found the extinguisher quickly enough to dye the Phocene enclosure. On a corner from Aouchiche, Kolodziejczak played the mover in front of Alvaro and Rongier and landed an unstoppable header for Mandanda (1-1, 32nd). Carried by a sharp Khazri, ASSE took little bit of confidence. But she was not far from being surprised on a distant strike from Guendouzi which struck the post.
Marseille too strong for ASSE
Back from the locker room, Marseille did not procrastinate and regained the advantage. On a new action initiated by Payet and nder, Gerson took advantage this time of a caviar from Rongier to adjust Green under the bar (2-1, 51st). As in the first period, the Greens clung and annoyed the Marseillais who had more and more difficulty getting the ball out. But this time, nder was in charge of giving a good mattress in advance by adjusting Green with a nice shot rolls into the small net (3-1, 68 ‘).
With the Vlodrome finally liberated, OM loosened their grip slightly and left some space for the Greens. The southern club nevertheless obtained several opportunities on clear blocks but the attackers narrowly missed in the last gesture. It still needed a nice save from Green to prevent Payet from pushing the fourth goal. A very good performance from the Marseillais, who delighted their audience despite a last scare in extra time with a fine stop by Mandanda ahead of Nordin.
The score of the match: 7.5 / 10

Man of the match: Cengiz nder (8/10)
The Turkish winger was particularly in sight in this game. His multiple provocations gave headaches to Kolodziejczak, who never knew how to stop him. He is also involved on the first two goals with passes that have destabilized the opposing defense and then driving the nail with a superb strike in the small opposite net. He could have finished with a decisive pass on the clock but Luis Henrique failed to convert his offering. A full match for him!
Steve Mandanda (6.5): the Marseille goalkeeper was much more reassuring in this match with several important saves on attempts by Bouanga and Nordin. He was solid on his line.
William Saliba (6.5): against his former club, the central defender has never trembled. Serene, he even allowed himself several very daring outings.
lvaro Gonzlez (5): the image of the goal conceded against Nice, the Spanish central defender lacked aggressiveness to win his duel against Kolodziejczak on the Stphanoise equalizer. He was fairly average in some aerial duels.
Luan Peres (6.5): not very worried, the Brazilian has often helped his midfielders with his breakthroughs to raise the block. It is one of them which brings the third Marseille goal.
Valentin Rongier (6.5): yet renowned for having a good shot, the midfielder formed Nantes was completely failing the finish by spoiling very clear opportunities. And yet, he gave in an off-center midfield position with a lot of defensive work and a decisive pass for Gerson. Replace the 73rd minute with Pope Gueye (not rated).
Boubacar Kamara (7): a meeting of duty for the defensive midfielder, who cut the Stphanoise passes well. His pressing on the ball carrier was very effective.
Matto Guendouzi (7.5): a real good match for the French midfielder, who impressed with his volume of play. Author of the first goal with a low strike, he is not far from the double before the break from a long shot that found the post. A tone below in the second period with some loss of ball.
Cengiz nder (8): read comment above.
Gerson (6.5): a tone below his partners in the middle in the first period. The Brazilian nevertheless stood out with a caviar that was not exploited by Rongier before the break. Upon returning from the locker room, the former Nantes player made up for it perfectly by offering him his turn a gift that he converted into a goal, his first under his colors in an official match. Replace the 86th minute with Pol Lirola (not rated).
Konrad De La Fuente (6.5): back in the starting XI, the American winger was once again trembling. Decisive passer on Guendouzi’s goal, he never stopped provoking even if he did not succeed. An interesting activity. Replace the 56th minute with Luis Henrique (not rated), which was failing to finish.
Dimitri Payet (7.5): in line with his start to the season, the attacking midfielder was radiant in this match with a magnificent opening that led to Guendouzi’s goal. His placement between the lines was a real problem for the Greens, as on the second goal with another sharp pass to the front. His technical touch was key in this part.
