Marseille still beats dwindling Sporting

Olympique de Marseille (OM) beat Sporting, after two players were sent off from the Portuguese club. On October 12, 2022, OM finally re-launched itself in Group D of the Champions League, thanks to this 2-0 win.

For the first time since September 2011, Olympique de Marseille (OM) has two wins in the Champions League (C1). It is an event for the French football club that is still in the race to qualify for the round of 16 of the 2022-2023 edition.

A situation that OM still owes in part to the early elimination of an athlete. As in the first leg on October 4th with Antonio Adan being sent off, the Portuguese club quickly found themselves with ten men against eleven after that played by Ricardo Esgayo. The defender hit a header to Moroccan midfielder Amine Harit in his own area. Previously warned, Esgayo saw red and allowed captain Matteo Guenzio to open the scoring with a penalty (0-1, 20). Ten minutes later, Chilean Alexis Sanchez converted a bid from Harriet (0-2, 30). The goal was first disallowed for offside, then validated after resorting to the VAR.

Exclusion of a second athlete

However, the locals did not finish their sentence. An hour later, striker Pedro Gonçalves was sent off for receiving two warnings in quick succession, the second for protest. Verde e Brancos nine against eleven. The numerical inferiority is hard to make up for in Marseilles, who provide the luxury of directing CEOs such as Jonathan Klaus, Eric Bailly, and Goudenzi.
