Marseille falls from above. This Sunday, at the end of the 25th day of Ligue 1, Olympique de Marseille lost to Clermont Foot 63 (0-2) on their lawn. Things got off to a bad start for the locals. Quite quickly, Bayo took advantage of an offering from Zedadka, himself perfectly launched by Hountondji, to cool the Vélodrome with a nice powerful cross shot (0-1, 12th). Overall dominating but in a sterile way, the men of Jorge Sampaoli, who decided to maintain his confidence in Milik, did not show much before the break. Only Ünder, disgusted by a saving return from Zedadka (30th), and Payet, upset by a superb flight from Djoco (38th), undermined a very compact Auvergne defense. Upon returning from the locker room, the Marseillais gradually increased their domination around the opposing surface.
But they came up against a great night Djoco. The Clermont doorman, when he was not saved by Gastien on a point-blank shot from Guendouzi (67th), repelled, with a beautiful horizontal, a shot from Rongier (56th), before winning in front of Ünder ( 57th), also making a good outing on a dangerous cross in front of his goals (74th). Folding without breaking is what slowly but surely led Allevinah to take the break, taking the best of the aerial duel over Gerson (84th), to ensure the 3rd victory in 4 days for Pascal Gastien’s players, who took their distances on the red zone. The addition could even have been more salty without a final intervention from Lopez (90th). After two consecutive successes in Ligue 1, OM fell in their lair and were only one point ahead of Nice (3rd) and four over Strasbourg (4th) in the standings.
