After Terrier scorer, Terrier passer

With 21 goals this season, the Rennes striker was more accustomed to making the opposing nets tremble than delivering caviars for his teammates.

The former Lyonnais therefore tried his hand at passing this Saturday and took it well.

A perfect center for Bourigeaud in the 12th minute then a ball dropped into Majer's feet, still from the left side.

If there was a trophy rewarding the best progress of the season, Martin Terrier would certainly be a candidate.

Lovro Majer, the missing player at OM

A creative player, technically skilled and able to play vertically and break lines through the pass.

This is the player profile that OM lacks and Rennes has managed to find with Lovro Majer, who arrived last summer from Dinamo Zagreb.

This Saturday, he once again entertained Rohazon Park and even had the luxury of scoring a 6th goal in Ligue 1 this season on a perfect cross from Martin Terrier (35th).

Also involved in the first goal, it was he who sent this pass perfectly measured in depth for this same Terrier which allowed Bourigeaud's goal.

A full match and a real satisfaction for the Rennes recruitment unit.

Benjamin Bourigeaud, keystone of the Rennes collective

With 12 offerings this season, Benjamin Bourigeaud occupies 3rd place in the ranking of the best passers in Ligue 1. This Saturday, he turned into a scorer by perfectly taking over the center of Martin Terrier with his right foot to put his people on the right track. (12th).

Very mobile, he was both available on his right side and valuable in his work without the ball in midfield.

A full match, one more for those who could legitimately claim a place in the standard team of the season.


Pape Gueye in full shipwreck

Since his return from the AFCON, the Senegalese midfielder has not displayed the same performance at the heart of the Olympian game.

This match against Rennes again highlighted his shortcomings in the use of the ball but he was also outclassed in duels and intensity.

Overall, the whole of the Marseille environment did not exist this Saturday, but the former Le Havre displays the worst statistics with only one duel won (out of 9 played).

He even came close to being sent off after an uncontrolled and very dangerous tackle on Bourigeaud.

A non-match.

Duje Caleta-Car exceeded

His dumpling in the first leg of the Europa League Conference on the lawn of Feyenoord (3-2) is obviously not digested for Caleta-Car.

Yet very solid this season, the Croatian is cracking at the worst of times.

A bit like his team finally.

This Saturday, he has a significant share of responsibility for both goals.

Totally passive on the first goal, he did not see Bourigeaud tumbling behind him and aligned poorly with the rest of the defense on the action of the 2nd goal, leaving Martin Terrier in play.

Quite upset when he left, he was nevertheless very uncomfortable on the green rectangle.

The questionable choices of Jorge Sampaoli

Jorge Sampaoli keeps repeating that he could play with 11 midfielders if given the chance.

This is a bit what he did this Saturday by establishing Harit in false number 9 as well as Rongier in the position of right side and Gerson in a hybrid role of left winger / attacking midfielder.

All associated with the Gueye / Kamara / Guendouzi triplet.

But with so many axial profiles, OM's game naturally lacked depth and complementarity.

Not to mention the absence of Bamba Dieng at the kickoff who could have brought this depth much earlier in the game.

Sometimes illegible tactical choices that did not help OM this Saturday.
