Olympique de Marseille (OM) temporarily advanced in the French football championship on Friday 30 September, by winning (3-0), without forcing much, in the opening match of the ninth day of the League. Raymond Cuba.
Abused for the first half hour, the Fujians finally took advantage of their opponents’ lack of realism and SCO flaws – now the worst defense in the tournament (21 goals conceded in nine matches) – to win thanks to Jonathan Klaus (35 goals)e), Luis Suarez (50 .)e) and Gerson (59 .)e). A perfect recovery, after the international break, for Igor Todor’s men, who have only ten matches left, in all competitions, ahead of the November-December break for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
In the French league, they are undefeated, and after the last setback they suffered against Rennes (1-1) on the eighth day, they are narrowly ahead of Paris Saint-Germain, who host Nice on Saturday evening in the Parc des Princes.
But the picture is darker in the Champions League, as OM started with two defeats against Englishman Tottenham (0-2) and German Eintracht Frankfurt (0-1) and they will not have the right to be wrong, Tuesday, against. Sporting Portugal.
For Angers, who got out of a bad patch with wins over Montpellier (2-1) and Nice (1-0) before the break, it’s a new disappointment. But Gerald Battel’s workforce (14e8 points), which has been deeply revamped this summer, is slightly ahead of the red and has shown encouraging signs.
Marseille’s first goal for Klaus
In a match played at a slow pace, under heavy rain and fresh storms, the SCO players are really starting to put pressure on Marseille. But Nabil Bentaleb saw the post push back with a nice shot (18 .).e), and Adrien Hunou, who was found alone in the area, never framed himself (34e).
At the back, Marseille Klaus, who was well turned to the left by Suarez, fell into the Angevin penalty area to open the scoring with the help of the next post (1-0, 35).e), raising Raymond-Copa Stadium, where “weapons” The Olympian sounded much louder than his voice “Go SCO”. This is the first goal in the OM jersey for the France international, who was assisting in the left lane due to a stop by Nuno Tavares.
After his activation, Marseille quickly accelerated his pace and Suarez had the opportunity to take out Angevins but his header was off target (39e). It was Klaus who took care of it: a ball interception poorly negotiated by Angevin’s defense, and the winger quickly pictured himself to find Suarez alone in the area (2-0, 50).e). The former Lincois then merged near the SCO cages with Samuel Gigot, who served Gerson (3-0, 59).e).
Facing the increasingly frenetic Angevins, OM then sped off without being forced and Igor Theodor (from the stands due to being suspended and replaced off the bench by his deputy Harry Fukas) seized the opportunity to take out Klaus – to stadium cheers – and Gerson and Dimitri Payet, ahead of Tuesday’s game which already considered crucial to the rest of his European campaign.
