Olympique de Marseille is the team in form at the start of the year. Opposed to Lorient, Saturday, as part of the 19th day of Ligue 1, OM indeed won 3-1 at the Vélodrome, thus chaining a sixth success in a row.
At the same time, if Lens won against Auxerre (1-0), PSG lost to Rennes (1-0). Also, if the Sky and White still only point to third place in the standings, they have only five points left over the champions of France and still two over Lens. Something to give ideas to some supporters.
Former OM player, before becoming reserve coach, assistant coach and head coach at OM, Albert Emon believes in the chances of the Marseille club in the title race. “I have the feeling that this team can beat the two teams in front of them. By that I mean finishing the season ahead of Paris and Lens in the league. I really think so, he confided in the columns of Provence. They have no more calculations to do. It transpires on the pitch, they are sure of their strengths, imperturbable, they repeat their ranges perfectly. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen such energy at OM. This is what makes me say that there is something very beautiful about playing in the league. They should set no limits. »
