|NOTE OF THE MATCH: 08/10||NOTE FROM THE REFEREE: 06/10|
As announced, the atmosphere before this OM-Lyon was exceptional. It only remained to be at the height at the meeting. What the Olympians have done, not without difficulty, thanks to a doubling of a man that we talked a lot before the match, Dimitri Payet.
It was the only place where there was really some uncertainty and Andre Villas-Boas managed to surprise. On the right, he gave Maxime Lopez his chance. It's technical but the OM is actually 4-1-4-1, with Benedetto in tip and still Kamara sentinel. Between the two, Sanson Rongier but also Dimitri Payet who folds to the left as rarely. From the beginning of the match, the Marseille team is motivated, determined. It pays quickly as Lyon shows that they are not here to defend. A good pressing in the penalty area for the ball loss caused Thiago Mendes to touch the ball with his hand. The referee whistles logically penalty and despite long minutes of poisoning from the Lyonnais, Payet transforms the sentence. The number 10 is necessarily motivated against his former coach. And he doubles the setting at five minutes of the break. Well found by Maxime Lopez, he crosses his shot in the box. It does not seem powerful but Lopes is initially masked by his defenders and it's 2-0 for OM. Without possession, despite a Queen-Adelaide stirring, the Marseillais were the hardest at the break, to the delight of the Velodrome.
Lyon does not admit defeat
At the break, Rudi Garcia also leaves Reine-Adelaïde for Jean Lucas. And in the 52nd, Aouar must give up his place on injury to the young Cherki. What to expect at the end of a peaceful match? The answer is in the question. After a few minutes of interruption due to the smoke of pyrotechnic devices, Lyon reduced the mark. A good center of Bertrand Traore in the box, Alvaro inexplicably low and Dembele can push Mandanda of the head at close range. There is half an hour left to play. A few minutes later, Caleta-Car climbs too high to the dry cleaning then misses an interception. To cover him, Alvaro is obliged to retain Dembele in position of last defender and is expelled. OM must finish at 10 and it is Benedetto who leaves his place to Strootman, for an OM who plays in 4-4-1 with Payet ahead. It must be honest, the Marseillais will not have an opportunity. But the Lyonnais will not be really dangerous either, if it is not a big recovery of Terrier halfway up in the 89th surface. Blame good management of the match and the ball of the men of AVB. Who will sleep well tonight.
