Olympique de Marseille, who lost for the first time this season in Ligue 1 on Saturday to Ajaccio (1-2), lost a great opportunity to return to Paris Saint-Germain at the top of the French Ligue 1.
The players of Igor Tugor were surprised by the commitment of the Corsican team during this meeting in the Velodrome, losing three valuable points in front of their fans. Dominant, OM was penalized twice for somewhat disturbing defensive roaming. One thing is for sure, this performance is not reassuring before the trip to Sporting Portugal on Tuesday night in the Champions League even if the Croatian coach has decided to rotate during this meeting. Marseille will undoubtedly face the revenge team after the slap they received in the velodrome (4-1) and the tensions seen during the first leg. Especially since the Portuguese club was full of confidence this weekend with its victory at Santa Clara Stadium (2-1). Ruben Amorim players occupy fifth place in the Portuguese championship after 9 days.
Payette Tudor, same note
The Marseille coach had a hard time explaining this poor performance after the match.Admittedly, I find it difficult to explain. From what I saw, we only played 15 minutes. We started off well with the right frame of mind and the desire to do well. But after the goal, we really changed our energy, lowered our level (…) I didn’t feel like winning the game in our team, even from the bench. It’s something missing, you always have to want to win, even if you play poorly.” Fischer Tudor.
A view shared by Dimitri Payet, author of his 100th Ligue 1 goal against the ACA, but he was undoubtedly dreaming of another scenario to celebrate the event. “It’s inexplicable. I hope it’s just an accident, we’ve done well since the start of the season, but it’s hard to absorb this defeat.”in particular to bring down the Olympic playmaker.
