Tops / Flops Marseille-Bordeaux: Amavi's grand cru, Adli's absence


Scorer and very active on his lane, Jordan Amavi collects the honors in the same way as Florian Thauvin, honors that will not receive Dario Benedetto, nor Yacine Adli, symbol of the Bordeaux lack of ideas, find the tops / flops of Marseille -Bordeaux.


Jordan Amavi, man of the match

Defensively calm in the first half in his vis-à-vis with Rémi Oudin, Jordan Amavi spent the second in the second half.

He has become intractable.

His lobed head on a free kick he himself had obtained (54 ') gave him a second goal in Ligue 1, the second against Bordeaux (3-1 last December).

His taste for Bordeaux could have been reinforced if his he had framed his shot, finally deflected by Pablo in his goal ten minutes later.

(64 ') Always very high on the ground, his availability, as well as that of his right-wing counterpart Hiroki Sakai, illustrated the desire to go through the sides of an OM who will have long evolved in the Girondin camp.

His suspension of three matches (excluded against Paris) aside, the former Niçois demonstrates that he has returned to the level he could have on the Côte d'Azur.

Florian Thauvin headlining

His shot wound in the skylight of Benoît Costil (5 ') set the tone.

His missed penalty against the exercise specialist (16 penalties stopped in 10 years) did not make him gambergen.

Always very available on the right side, he gave a lot of torments to a Loris Benito who never managed to contain him.

His free kick on the head of Jordan Amavi (54 ') allows him to heal his stats sheet and sign a fourth assist, the best total in the league.

In the penultimate pass on the third goal, the French international showed very good dispositions before returning to the Champions League.

Michaël Cuisance well integrated

His tenure in place of Dimitri Payet (suspended after his red in Lyon) was a semi-surprise.

Without shining, Michaël Cuisance has spread his technical palette according to orientations with a touch often felt.

Already accomplice with Thauvin on the ground, the former Bavarian played fair, evidenced by his 93% of successful passes, the highest total of the match.

Positioned as a playmaker, the Alsatian embellished his first with an assist for Jordan Amavi, who saw his shot deflected by Pablo at the back of the net (64 ').

75 minutes of good quality for a Cuisance who will have a real card to play this season with OM.


Yacine Adli can't weigh

Recruited in the summer of 2019 from PSG to dynamise the Gironde attack, Yacine Adli is still not up to expectations.

Scorer last year at the Vélodrome (3-1), the midfielder eccentric to the left this Saturday will never have had the opportunity to repeat.

If he could show a semblance of complicity with a voluntary Hatem Ben Arfa for his premiere, Adli has often looked for his partners, sometimes out of time.

His defensive contribution was too poor, certainly handicapped by his yellow card from the start (4 ') after a big tackle on Hiroki Sakai, who had a boulevard on the right side.

Bordeaux apathy

The semblance of revolt with the goal denied to Ben Arfa (16 ') then the strike from Basic (24') is the shadow that hides the forest.

Faced with a dominant Marseille without being transcendent, Bordeaux suffered a lot and lacked impact during three quarters of the match.

Jean-Louis Gasset's men owe their salvation only to the returns of Hwang then Maja and Briand, involved in the reduction of the score (83 '), and the release of OM at the end of the match.

A new match to forget for the Girondins, which had the merit of annoying captain Benoît Costil at the end of the meeting, at the microphone of 

Canal + 

: "We reacted too late ... We did not retain the lessons. ” 

Dario Benedetto always ghostly

Despite some timely delays, Dario Benedetto still went through the game like a lone wolf.

Completely foreign to the three Marseille goals, the Argentine center forward has never participated in the combinations in front.

Never really found in a position to conclude, except on this delivery of Sakai intercepted in-extremis by Costil (66 '), the former Boca Juniors has often sinned for lack of speed in decision-making.

His loss of the ball in the middle leading to the reduction in score of Maja (83 ') is a sad illustration.
