OM in Lisbon beat Sporting 2-0 on Wednesday during the fourth day of the Champions League. Here is Amin Harit’s assessment and appreciation for this match.
After winning 4-1 in the first leg, OM had to confirm his return to the Champions League in Portugal against Sporting. Contrary to the failed start to the match at the Velodrome, Marseille perfected the match start by technically breaking out of the pressure of Amorim’s men. With Guendouzi lined up in the attacking trio but who had already pulled out to help the midfield, OM took control of this start to the match. In the 17th minute, Harriet was found by Ronger in the area, he touched the ball before it was cut by Ejio. The second yellow card is synonymous with the red for the defender and the penalty is converted by Guendouzi. OM leads to 0-1 and finds itself in numerical superiority. Marseille perfected this match, Sanchez attempted a shot from 30 meters and forced Israel to fall back for a corner kick, the match was postponed for the Chilean striker. The video assistant referee confirmed the validity of Chile’s goal after 5 minutes, at the offside limit, Harriet recovers a pass from Mbemba on the right and modifies it in the penalty kick for Sanchez, who ends the ball from close range. 0-2, the match looks already folded. Lopez will make a good intervention at the start of the second period, Harit Fest forcing the Portuguese to connect the fouls. Gonçalves will be sent off for two consecutive yellow cards, Sporting ninth in the 61st minute, the match is over. Harriet and Ronger could have made it 0-3, but the score wouldn’t move in the end. A big win for OM which is re-launching in the Champions League.
It reads: Sporting – OM (0-2): The Marseille Sporting Journey!
Amin Harit’s note : 7.5 / 10
Send Harit Payet to the bench!
Matching Sanchez, the Morocco international drove the Portuguese defenders crazy. Meticulously at dribbling, Harriet suffered a lot of fouls. He was the catalyst for the Marseille match. If he did not score, he was decisive by getting a penalty kick, and a decisive pass for a 0-2 goal. He could have scored with a header but above all led OM’s attack. As a token, it was replaced by Payet at 72, and the owner is now…
|MaxiFoot||8/10||In all the good moves, OM’s attacking midfielder has confirmed his good form! Untenable and confident on the ball, he struggled to make a difference for over an hour. And successfully, since receiving the penalty and then offering Marseille’s second goal to Sanchez.|
