After leading 2-0 against a weak Bordeaux team, Jorge Sampaoli’s OM were caught in the space of a few minutes in the second half to lose two points at the Stade Vélodrome (2-2) on Sunday.
However, the Marseille evening was going perfectly on Sunday. In an overheated Stade Velodrome, theIF, a week after his stunning victory in Montpellier (2-3), led 2-0 at half-time against the Girondins de Bordeaux. But Jorge Sampaoli’s men completely stopped playing to finally share the points (2-2).
The Phocaeans led by Dimitri Payet were not as dangerous as in their first game, in their 3-2-4-1 allowing the two wingers Konrad of the Source and Cengiz Under to make differences. When the American winger finally accelerated, the Turk opened the scoring (34th). Five minutes later, Payet doubled the bet on his own with a 20-meter strike (41st).
A PSG player changes everything!
Strangely enough, the Marseillais stopped playing after returning from the locker room and the training of Vladimir Petkovic did not ask for so much. The defender trained at PSG Timothée Pembélé advanced to the right and his shot blocked by Luan Peres unseated Steve Mandanda (51st). The OM goalkeeper was still knocked out on a magnificent recovery of Remi Oudin, found behind a corner (57th)!
At 2-2, the Marseillais had less juice to approach the goal of Benoît Costil and the returns of Nemanja Radonjic and Dario Benedetto did not change anything. The real concern for the Argentine coach is that his defensive sector is fragile, especially on opposing blocks (when Boubacar Kamara is not yet placed on the right). Leonardo Balerdi, not really serene, took a direct red for a dangerous tackle late in the game (89th). OM is far from the mark.
