On the lawn of the Velodrome, Marseille won Sunday against LOSC his third consecutive win in Ligue 1. A cleverly constructed victory (2-0).
18th day of Ligue 1
Olympique Marseille-Lille: 2-0
Goals: Gomis (56th), Thauvin (61)
In Marseille, it is known, very quickly we yield in excess. Therefore, the third consecutive victory, obtained Sunday by Rudi Garcia’s team will certainly arouse much euphoria in Marseille. But, is it really surprising given the partition proposed Sunday by the Olympians? Perhaps the best they have provided since the beginning of the McCourt era. Facing a LOSC which was also in full recovery, the premises have first been able to weather the storm and then poking through their two leaders attack, Bafétimbi Gomis and Florian Thauvin.
There are not so long, Marseille was painful to look at his audience, including conceding too many goals. Now this team is almost unbeatable behind when it plays at home. Against the Danes, they have brought to five the number of consecutive games at the Velodrome with a clean sheet. This series was not far from stopping in the first period when the Yankees had multiplied the assaults. But Yohann Pelé was able to ensure grain including diverting high kick of Rony Lopes (14th). Minutes later, he also saw a head Beria (25th) pass close to its frame.
The feat of Thauvin
“It is wrong entered the game because the stakes had taken over. But in the second half, we showed the quality of this group,” said Bafétimbi Gomis . A fair analysis from the French international. When they rushed him and his partners were able to round back, and once the Lille ammunition exhausted, they reacted. The breakthrough could occur as early as a half hour of the game if Enyeama had not picked up a shot full axis of William Vainqueur. Finally, and as was the case in the match against Nancy (3-0), that is after the break as Marseille blew the opposing lock.
At the 56th minute, the inevitable Gomis arose in the area to catch the ball right Maxime Lopez. With the freedom that was left to him by the opponents, he could only do fly. With this goal, OM LOSC forced to go out and start from the collision. It was the ideal scenario to enjoy the space and make the break. This was rightly Florian Thauvin . Five minutes after the completion of Gomis, ephemeral former Lille was also on the scoresheet execution of beauty: a shot from the left at the edge of the area, which ended in the far corner. There was still half an hour to play, but the suspense was finally evaporated. The time when OM creaked late and left spinning wins that were promised to him is over now.
