The double penalty for OM

Spread the love

Two weeks after their defeat at Lens, OM lost to Lille on Saturday evening as part of the 36th day of L1 (2-1). The defeat too many, potentially, for a direct qualification in C1.

The defeat of Monaco in Lyon on Friday evening validated a lesson: the leading trio of the acquired championship, only remains to determine the order of this winning trio. In light of the result between Lille and Marseille this Saturday, a hierarchy seems to emerge. With OM in the worst role, which could well give up to Lens that of first runner-up to a PSG that seems promised at 11e national coronation.

As in Lens a fortnight earlier (2-1 defeat), the Marseillais lost big as they approached the northern tip of France. If Clauss, the ex-Sang et Or, played a very bad trick on the Mastiffs by opening the scoring in the first act following a deep serve from Malinovskyi (0-1, 29e), the Olympians stretched the stick to be beaten after the break.

Early replacement for a Leg still the victim of a bad blow, Kaboré on his return from the locker room despite himself allowed the young Baleba to obtain a penalty on a cavalier exit from Lopez. An offering that obviously did not miss David, the Losc scorer (1-1, 50e). At the hour mark, Sanchez thought he would give the advantage to the Phocaeans but the VAR got the better of the visitors’ joy, for an offside position.

A sentence all the more cruel for Marseille as Lille, in the process, was able to find the fault. On a Cabella caviar in favor of Bamba (1-2, 72e). Neither more nor less than the winning goal for the Northerners who thus come back just two points behind Monaco and their fourth place. While pushing Rennes to four units while waiting for the Bretons to move to Ajaccio on Sunday. OM, for their part, remain two lengths behind Lens, who will have the opportunity to make a hole in Lorient this Sunday to potentially secure their direct access to the Champions League.
