Rongier, what mastery!

In great shape for several games, the OM midfielder has once again shone on the lawn of the Stadio Olimpico. Impressive with his physical density and his sense of combat, the former Nantes player also had excellent ball outings and played with a lot of serenity. He was even at the origin of several hot situations for OM by his vision of the game and his quality of passing.

Ünder made the Roman defense dance

The Turkish winger once again played his role of wisp to perfection.

Regularly found by Payet, the former Roma player, copiously whistled with each ball catch, was at the origin of the vast majority of Marseille's chances.

It was he who started almost everything in the OM offensive sector thanks to his devastating percussions and his quality of dribbling.

The Turkish international could even have opened the scoring in the first half but saw his curled shot perfectly deflected by Strakhosha.


Zaccagni suffered from the comparison with Ünder Established

on the left flank of the


attack, Mattia Zaccagni had a hard time bringing danger in front of Pau Lopez's goals. Apart from a dangerous strike in the second half which pushed Pau Lopez to the parade, the 26-year-old winger committed too much waste, especially in the first half and wasted a great opportunity to serve Pedro in the box in the second half. Little in sight, he did not manage to put in difficulty the Marseille rearguard and in particular Saliba who was able to contain him perfectly.

Lirola is not a left winger

Jorge Sampaoli wanted to try a tactical blow by starting Pol Lirola, right side, as left winger.

The bet did not pay off.

Uncomfortable in this position, the Spaniard failed to bring enough danger in front of Strakhosha's goal.

Sometimes at the wrong time in his choices, he has from time to time slowed down the Marseille game by returning to his right foot instead of provoking the opposing defense.

Difficult, however, to throw stones at him since the former Fiorentina had never held this position before.
