LIVE – OM-Montpellier: Marseille surprised at the start of the match on a flashback

Sakho gets ready

The former Parisian defender accelerates his warm-up along the sidelines. Meanwhile, Kouyaté gets up next to the stretcher.

Concern for Kouyaté

Victim of a header from Vitinha in an aerial duel, the defender remains on the ground in his area. His partners immediately demand change.

OM reacts timidly

Like their public, OM are still wise at the start of the match, even if they manage to keep the ball.


After intervention by the VAR, the referee validates Nordin’s goal, 1-0 for the MHSC! Wahi was on the verge of offside after Kahzri’s tumble, moments before serving as the first scorer of the evening.

Nordin scores… offside!

After a counterflash, Nordin wins his face to face with Blanco on the right! The flag goes up immediately, as Khazri initiated the action from his own area.

Malinovskyi misses his control

Found by Guendouzi in depth, he comes up against the good return of Kouyaté. OM can stay high.

Sanchez finds Vintinha

Wanted on the left of the surface, the Chilean international manages to play with Vitinha, who lacks control and offers a goal clearance.

Julien dangerous head

Following a free kick, Jullien is found in two stages on the left of the surface. His delivery is dismissed by Vitinha at the penalty spot.

Corner for Montpellier

Savanier looks for the first post from the left. Vitinha temporarily pushes her head away.

Wahi gets the blame

On his first catch of the ball, the young Héraultais made the difference in the midfield. He wins a free kick and allows his team to go up a notch.

Sanchez misses the ball

Tavares receives the ball on the left and immediately tries to serve his attacker, who left at the wrong tempo. Montpellier recovers.

Exit of the artists

The two teams leave the tunnel of the Vélodrome stadium, which welcomes nearly 57,000 supporters this evening, the bottom of the south corner being closed.

Gare au poison Place

The 20-year-old Montpellier striker has 12 Ligue 1 goals this season, as many as Alexis Sanchez. He has scored in his last three outings.

OM must redeem themselves in front of their public

Eliminated in the Coupe de France by Annecy on penalties in their Vélodrome (2-2, 6-7 pens), the Marseillais also remain on 4 games without a win at home in Ligue 1 (2 draws, 2 losses).

Why Pau Lopez is on the bench

The goalkeeper was sick and missed three training sessions with OM this week. It is therefore preserved, even if it is on the match sheet, and also participates in the warm-up of Ruben Blanco.


Montpellier can’t do it against Marseille

The MHSC remains on 8 games without a win against OM in Ligue 1 (5 losses, 2 draws), its last success dating back to November 4, 2018 (3-0).

Set pieces, a major weapon of the Phocaeans

The Olympians have scored 20 goals from set pieces this season in the league (10 from a corner, 4 from a penalty, 4 from an indirect free kick, 2 from a direct free kick), the highest total in the elite. They have also scored 7 of their last 10 goals from set pieces.

The MHSC on a big series

11th, Montpellier remains on 5 games without defeat (4 wins, 1 draw). On their last 6 trips, the Héraultais have signed 4 successes without conceding a goal, for 2 losses.

OM want to see higher

In the event of a victory, Tudor’s men would temporarily take a 5-point lead over RC Lens, 3rd. Above all, they would come back to 4 lengths from PSG before the Parisians receive OL.

The eleven of OM fell: Vitinha and Guendouzi holders

Pau Lopez is spared and on the bench, Balerdi is suspended.
