Tops / Flops Marseille-Lorient: Omnipresent Guendouzi, Lorient too naive


The match full of Guendouzi, the caviars of Payet, but also the limits of Lorient: find the Tops and Flops of the editorial staff at the end of this match between Marseille and Lorient (4-1).


Le soir de Guendouzi

He is not used to being the most decisive player on his team.

And yet.

This Sunday evening, Mattéo Guendouzi hurt his training club.

Always so tireless, he was invaluable by his activity in the dry cleaners.

And he participated in this success by being a decisive passer and scorer.

First author of a cross for Kamara that was intelligently let slip by Payet, he then scored on a lobed header following a corner from the same Payet, then was involved in the 4th goal with a deflected cross at the bottom of its nets by Mendes.

A match he will remember for a long time.

Payet still in the service of the collective

This is the other great man of this match. If he did not score, Dimitri Payet was still generous throughout the meeting. And is at the origin of the 4 goals of his team. His classy gesture by letting the center of Guendouzi slip between his legs on the 1st goal launched his performance crowned with two or even three assists if Guendouzi's double is confirmed. Passer from a corner, then towards Milik, for his 1st goal of the season, Payet is in great shape. Promising before the shock against PSG.

Pau Lopez, finally convincing

He has been quite criticized lately for his lack of confidence in front of his line or in his aerial outings.

But Pau Lopez was flawless this Sunday evening with no less than six saves, most of them decisive.

We remember in particular this parade on a shot from Diarra in the first period, or this double stop in a few seconds in front of Laurienté, then this same Diarra, when the score was still 1-1.

Reassuring to the end, he may have launched his career at OM.

The Sampaoli leg still visible

Once again, OM were again attractive on Sunday evening.

Adept at taking uncalculated risks, Jorge Sampaoli saw his team produce good stretches at times, even if it was not sustainable enough.

Long under the threat of Lorient, Marseille finished strong, proof that physically, the club has resources.


Lorient ended up cracking

The start of the game had been promising on the Lorient side. But the rest was not of the same ilk. In the first period, the Merlus were able to take advantage of the spaces left by OM and were dangerous on several occasions, in particular by the young Diarra, replacing Moffi at short notice. But the visitors seemed too limited to regain the advantage in the second half and sank mentally and physically. Continuing their bad series on the road (21 unsuccessful matches in Ligue 1).

A sometimes jostled Marseille defense

Not everything was perfect at OM and we will again note the difficulties of Caleta-Car and, above all, of Luan Peres in defense.

The two men were close to the break on the Lorient counter, taken by the opposing vivacity.

Fortunately, without consequences for them and their team.

But some warnings to be taken seriously, especially a week from the reception of PSG.
