the summary of the elimination of OM in the semi-final of the Europa League

There are no longer any French clubs involved in men’s European competition. After Paris Saint-Germain, who missed out on their semi-final return in the Champions League on Tuesday, against Dortmund, it is Marseille’s turn to fail at the gates of the Europa League final. In Italy, the Marseille team lost heavily against Atalanta Bergamo with goals from Lookman, Ruggeri and Touré (0-3). La Dea will face Bayer Leverkusen, defeater of AS Roma (4-2 on aggregate) in the final of the Europa League, on May 22 in Dublin.

What you must remember

The cador. Ademola Lookman.

We didn’t necessarily expect him in attack alongside Scamacca and De Ketelaere and yet. First scorer of the evening with a powerful strike from the right (30th), then decisive passer on Ruggeri’s goal (52nd), Ademola Lookman made the Italians’ European dreams come true. The Nigerian international could even have increased the score (34th) if he had not slipped a few steps from the Marseille goalkeeper. Nightmare of the Marseillais, hero of the Bergamasques, he is undoubtedly the man of the match.

1-0, 30th. Served in the middle by De Ketelaere, the strong man of the match Ademola Lookman fixes the Marseille defense and strikes with his right foot. The ball is deflected by Gigot and goes into Lopez’s little net.

2-0, 52nd. Returning from the locker room, Matteo Ruggeri, the left winger of Atalanta, leaves on his side and enters the inside of the game. He plays one-two with Lookman, and enters the Marseille area. The Italian opens his right foot and the ball goes into the top corner. Lopez, abandoned by his defenders, can do nothing.

3-0, 90th+4. Additional time is about to end and the Marseillais no longer really believe it. After a harmless touch, El Bilal Touré accelerates on his left side and gets rid of Balerdi. The Dea player curls a shot with his right foot which lodges in the small opposite net.

The phrase. “At the Vélodrome, we are tigers and outside, we are cats”reacted OM coach, Jean-Louis Gasset, annoyed by the lack of aggressiveness of his players, directly at the microphone of Canal+.The number. 1, that is to say a shot on target from OM. A very meager record compared to sixteen shots including eight on target from Atalanta.The turning point of the match. A turning point? What turning point? This evening, only one team existed in Lombardy, both in the intensity and in the accuracy of the game. The Marseillais were outclassed, from start to finish. A long 90-minute tunnel which will leave a bitter taste for OM, despite being attractive in the first leg (1-1).Nutrisport. On the scale of our sports-entertainment indicator (A being an exquisite encounter – including beautiful play, climax and laughter –, D a frankly boring match), this confrontation divides us. If we were Italian, we would surely say “A”. Atalanta is celebrating, appearing in the Europa League final, the Italian Cup final and in the Top 5 of Serie A. cherry (cherry) on the torta (cake), as they say in the country. But as we are French, and complainers, we will just say that it has been a long week by awarding a little “C”, year after year.L’image.
