OM laughs, OL adrift

A very beneficial evening for OM! While Rennes lost; that Nice and Lens drew, Marseille only inherits second place in the championship. OL, on the other hand, slips to 10th position.

Spread the word: OM was not really reassured this Wednesday in Nantes. The Marseillais, with the return of Payet at the forefront while Milik was starting on the bench, certainly produced play at Beaujoire with the help of a particularly restless Harit – only despite their numerical superiority for a long hour, Jorge’s men Sampaoli never knew how to drive home the point after Gerson’s opener (30e).

Well served by the inevitable Payet, the Brazilian so decried since his arrival in Marseille has perhaps freed himself this evening. But in terms of the collective, OM still has a lot to do to regain the momentum and the promises of the start of the year. The second warning from Pallois, synonymous with a red card (32e), paradoxically did not help the Olympians to find their bearings against the Canaries necessarily camped on their rear, then too messy in their attempts to reply at the end of the match to return to the game.

Reindeer falls from a height

While waiting to reconnect with the beautiful certainties of the summer, OM, which is therefore satisfied with the strict minimum as against Troyes three days earlier (1-0), can appreciate its balance sheet which brings it to the second level of the ranking tonight. At the same time indeed, Reindeer failed after nine unbeaten days, surprised 1-2 by the Losc by Xeka (31e) and Sanches (45e) when Bourigeaud could not answer until the very end of the game (85e). Nice for his part shared the points with the PSG at the Parc des Princes (0-0) and Lens did the same to Clermont (2-2).

Another presumed rival of Marseille, although more distant until then, Lyon did not have a happy evening either. Forced in camera after the aborted Olympico (a sanction taken as a precaution pending the sentence of December 8), OL was surprised at home by Reims this Wednesday evening (1-2). Faes (56e) and Ekitike (90e+2) thus hurt Gones who appeared disorganized and barely saved in their performance by the realization of Toko Ekambi (66e). Tenth in the standings, the Rhone residents are six lengths behind on the podium.
