OM slap OL and continue their rise in Ligue 1

The match: 3-0

This time, no excesses were to be deplored, before or during the match, but OL will once again emerge bruised from their trip to the Vélodrome. Four days after delivering an interesting performance despite their defeat at Lens (2-3), the Lyonnais fell back into their ways and did not exist against OM (0-3).

In this clash between two “big” teams whose position in the ranking is far removed from their declared ambitions, Gennaro Gattuso’s players largely deserved their success. Better organized, much less fragile defensively, much more biting, the Phocaeans never trembled and caused the Lyonnais a lot of pain.

Carried by an untenable Aubameyang – Vitinha duo (see below), the Marseillais were able to ride on their current momentum, string together two successive victories in Ligue 1 for the first time this season and move up to 8th place in the rankings, six points from 4th place, synonymous with preliminary rounds in C1.

The players: Aubameyang-Vitinha, shock duo

They have rarely played at the same time on the pitch since the start of the season, and have never even started together since the arrival of Gennaro Gattuso. But on Wednesday evening, the Italian technician innovated, and he did really well. Each author of a decisive pass for the other, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Vitinha particularly shone.

A goal and an assist for the Portuguese, full of desire and anger. A goal and two assists for Aubameyang, the second for Murillo (2-0, 25th). The duo was complicit, complementary and made us want to be seen again. In the meantime, the two attackers were able, and it is logical, to come out to the cheers of the Vélodrome.


That is the number of defeats for OL in 14 days of L1. An apocalyptic assessment for a club whose ambition was to return to the C1, and currently last with 7 points.
