Ligue 1: Marseille wins the shock of the "Olympics"!


THE CONTEXT. Marseille at the party, Lyonnais caillassés

The Vélodrome had donned its light suit for this "Olympico"! On the occasion of the 120th anniversary of the club (created in 1899), the Marseille fans decided to mark the occasion. After having parade all over the city to celebrate this anniversary, it is in the legendary stadium of the Phocaean city that the aficionados had prepared a big surprise: a majestic tifo, covering all the stands. For this exceptional event the Vélodrome has also broken its record attendance with 65,369 supporters. In short, the atmosphere of the big nights in Marseille.

Unfortunately, there were also fears about the shock and they did not delay. On the sidelines of these celebrations, the Lyonnais players' bus was targeted when he arrived at the Vélodrome. Two side windows exploded. If no injuries were to declare, the president of Olympique Lyonnais, Jean-Michel expressed his anger at the descent of the bus, even threatening not to dispute the meeting. Not enough to apprehend at best such a shock …

THE SUMMARY. The Payet show!

For this "Olympico" with flavors of reunion for Rudi Garcia, it is in a simply incredible atmosphere that Lyon has kicked off the meeting. Driven by its audience – that of great nights, Marseille signs a very good start to the match and quickly puts pressure on the Lyon camp. The Lyonnais are suffocated on the field as in the stands. A pressure so strong that Thiago Mendes, panicked, commits a hand in the penalty area to prevent recovery Marseille. A bad reflex that is very expensive for his family. But if Dimitri Payet thinks pulling him in the wake, it was not counting on an altercation between Dario Benedetto and Leo Dubois that prevents the French international to take charge. The referee of the meeting eventually calm down the spirits but stops the game moments later because of a laser gene Anthony Lopes. It is necessary to wait more than five minutes before seeing Dimitri Payet to present himself at the point of penalty. Without trembling, the number 10 Marseille finds the skylight of Anthony Lopes and ignites the Vélodrome (1-0, 18 ').

After the opening of the score, the Marseillais are galvanized. The club Phocean imposes itself in the battle of the midfielder, recovers very high balloons and takes the ascendancy on the meeting. From then on, the opportunities multiply, with attempts of Dimitri Payet or Dario Benedetto. High up, the OM leaves spaces behind his back and allows Lyon to project forward. The match goes from one goal to another and offers a superb show. But Payet eventually calm the ardor of Lyon. With a tackle on Traoré, the number 10 recovers the leather and launches Lopez on the right corridor which gives him in the axis. The French international controls before crossing a cross shot and double the stake (2-0, 39 '). What a match and what a goal of Dimitri Payet! With this new achievement, Marseille becomes the first team to reach the bar of 4,000 goals in the history of Ligue 1.

If Lyon gets a dangerous opportunity shortly before the break, the Rhodanians do not find the way to the nets. Ubiquitous in this beginning of the meeting, Dimitri Payet is simply the Marseillais who has hit the most balls in the first period and the most decisive to give a significant advantage to his.

At the return of the locker room, the face of the match is upset. Rudi Garcia is looking to give a second wind to his players and operates the first change of the meeting with the release of Queen-Adelaide. The midfielder is replaced by Jean Lucas. At the beginning of the second period, Lyon is better but is struck by a first blow with the exit of Aouar. Injured in the thigh, he gives way to the young Cherki (16 years old only). But the match is interrupted shortly before the hour of play. A huge fog, caused by the many smoke of the fans, invades the Velodrome.

Taking advantage of this short break, Lyon recovers and the resumption of the match returns to the score through Moussa Dembélé. While Bertrand Traoré realizes a center returning, and Alvaro, the defender of Marseilles, decides to lower the head instead of clearing the leather. An error of judgment that allows Dembélé, just behind, to deceive Mandanda and raise his own (2-1, 59 ').

After this achievement, Olympique Marseille is scuttled. Just after provoking the goal, Alvaro, who made a big mistake on Dembélé, was sent off (64 '). In just two minutes, OM conceded a goal and a red and is under pressure against hungry Lyonnais. But Lyon are struggling to take advantage of this digital advantage and face a well organized Marseille team. In the last fifteen minutes of play, Dimitri Payet comes out under the ovation of the Stade Vélodrome (78 '). He is replaced by Valère Germain. At the very end of the match, Martin Terrier has the equalizer ball. Of a powerful half-volley, he touches the frame of Steve Mandanda, beaten (89 '). Lyon lacks success and loses against Olympique Marseille. Winner (2-1), OM won after five long years without success against his rival Rhone. The club is moving from the 9th to the 2nd place in the championship, now 6 points ahead of Lyon and thus performs a superb operation.

THE REACTION. The anger of Jean-Michel Aulas

Annoyed after the defeat in Marseille, the President of Olympique Lyonnais took the claws at the microphone of Canal +, heavily criticizing the referee Antony Gautier: "Of course the result is indisputable. On the other hand, the match gave a deplorable image of football in its context of passion and also reaction. That is to say when one tries to impress before the players, the leaders, with a pressure that is not contained. As during the match, we can mention two cases of difficulties in the application of the VAR: the hand of Sanson (12th), just before the hand that brings the penalty that changes the fate of the match. And then there is Benedetto's slap on Dubois who is not whistled at all (before Payet converted the penalty). Congratulations to Marseille for having put a fantastic pressure on having conditioned the little ball-gatherers so that they no longer give the balloons, to make the pressure be immense. There are big arbitration errors and pressure that is too big. When the bus is broken to order to impress, it's a pity. And to conclude at beIN Sports microphone: "We have arrived in a city of lawlessness"
