Tops / Flops Montpellier-Marseille: Ferri dictated the game, Caleta-Car saw red


The excellent performance of Jordan Ferri, the rewarded generosity of Arkadiusz Milik and the too fragile nerves of Caleta-Car… Find the Tops and Flops of this match between Montpellier and Marseille. 


Jordan Ferri, perfect passer 

The former Lyonnais delivered a serious performance in a completely disjointed match.

With his passes, Jordan Ferri dictated the game of his team and was able to create danger from his position as torchbearer.

Twice, his passes over the defense of OM resulted in a goal, the first two of the MHSC (1st, 47th).

Ultra precise, its long transmissions have permanently annoyed Marseille.

He was well supported in the middle by Savanier and Mollet, also very good.

Arkadiusz Milik, the trigger 

Not necessarily more prominent than in previous matches, Arkadiusz Milik stood out with his goal (43rd).

A superb sequence after a deviation from Kamara.

The Pole, under control, slips the ball between Hilton's legs and then goes off to beat Omlin coldly with the inside of his left foot.

His best goal with the Marseille jersey.

The rest of the match, he will have spent chasing after the defenders and the first relay runners from Montpellier.

A successful and generous service. 

Delort-Laborde, the enraged Héraultais

One scores after 27 seconds, the other after one minute and five seconds in the second period before equalizing a few moments before the final whistle.

Montpellier forwards love the ends.

Even if they were only decisive at the beginning and at the end of half-time, the two offensives of the MHSC swallowed the kilometers and did not stop harassing the Marseille ball carrier.

An abnegation rewarded by the goal of equalizing Laborde with a superb diving header (90 + 3rd), which has nothing to envy to the lob inspired by Delort (1st).


Caleta-Car got it all wrong

Not necessarily free from any reproach on Montpellier's first two goals, Duje

Caleta-Car punctuated its mediocre performance with a really silly red card.

By pouring all his frustration on Samba's ankle, the Croatian defender left his teammates at ten for the last half hour (63rd).

An expulsion almost inconsequential since the Olympians still managed to score and take the point of the match despite their numerical inferiority.

This is the ninth red card collected by an OM player this season, a European record.

Florian Thauvin, never dangerous 

The winger, repositioned in a more axial role and in the midfield than usual, does not seem to flourish in this position.

The French international has very little influence on his team's play and is too rarely in a position to initiate or conclude a Marseille movement.

His relationship with Milik is really not as good as what the early matches between the two have suggested.

He was never in the game despite a nice shot that narrowly missed the skylight of Omlin (75th).
