Involved on the two goals of Galatasaray, Cicaldau was in all the good shots of his team.

From the twelfth minute of play, the Romanian stood out by opening the scoring for the Turks.

Galatasaray on a walk in group G

In difficulty in the league, Galatasaray shines on the continental scene.

A qualification acquired at the end of a well-conducted group stage, attests to their invincibility since the start of the competition.

Best defense with only one goal conceded, Galatasaray dominated group G.


A mixed race

Olympique de Marseille leaves the Europa League through the back door.

Badly beaten in Galatasaray, the Olympians were eliminated from the competition without having won a single game in five matches.

A huge disappointment, so much the Phoceans were expected on the continental scene.

Unable to gain the upper hand over Lokomotiv Moscow or the Turks in the first leg matches, Jorge Sampaoli's proteges can harbor regrets.

Defense at bay

The second defense of Ligue 1, was absent subscribers against Galatasaray.

Like the performance of Luan Peres, the defenders of Olympique de Marseille have been overtaken on every offensive of the Turks.

Galatasaray's fourth goal is a perfect illustration of this lack of defensive strength.

On a harmless free kick in the Turkish camp, Ryan Babel, freshly entered, took over Saliba and allowed his team to regain a three-goal lead.

Jorge Sampaoli, questionable choices

In the absence of Dimitri Payet and Cengiz Under, Jorge Sampaoli tinkered with and did not make choices that paid off.

The Argentine technician had decided to set up a 4-4-2 when his players had the ball.

To liven up the wings, the former Sevilla coach has reserved a few surprises by aligning Matteo Guendouzi on the right, and Pape Gueye on the left flank.

An unsuccessful experiment which was not crowned with success and which slowed down the attacking tendencies of the Marseille club.
