After a high-flying choreography of OM supporters, the match starts on the run. The Phoceans press high and harass the Lyonnais who meet great collective difficulties.
The man of the first act is Payet. The Reunion scored two goals including a penalty and showed that he has strong nerves, after putting pressure on his former coach Garcia in a press conference.
Despite this two-goal advantage, OM falls back on it. At the beginning of the second period, Dembele scores for Lyon then Gonzalez is logically expelled.
At 10 against 11 for half an hour, the Marseille still managed to hold the ball against disappointing Gones. Garcia does not find the solution to turn things around. At the final whistle, the Velodrome, boiling all evening, can explode.
Thanks to this victory, OM is now the dauphin of PSG. OL remain in second place.
