How will the Vélodrome welcome Igor Tudor next Saturday for the reception of Nantes?
Last Sunday, the new Olympian coach was shouted down even before kick-off against Reims.
An invigorating victory later (4-1), the former Croatian defender seems to have acquired a certain cushion of sympathy.
A week later, we ask to see.
Much less in legs, and too little inspired offensively, the Olympians left Finistère on Sunday evening with a point and can consider themselves lucky.
The Brestois delivered a good resistance and even much more than that.
They could also have been the first to open the scoring if the header from Le Douaron (22nd) had not hit the post of a beaten Ruben Blanco.
Michel Der Zakarian could congratulate himself on this start: he had found the right formula to cut the power of the Marseille game by neutralizing the two pistons very high.
Even if the flaw still came from the two arrows Nuno Tavares and Jonathan Clauss.
Served back from a corner, the second distributed a center love to the Portuguese (38th), author of his second goal in two appearances in L1.
The combination, visibly repeated in training, paid off, but given the overall performance of the Marseille block, there is still work to be done.
Ruben Blanco better than an understudy
Upon returning from the locker room, the Phocaeans wanted to manage, probably too much.
Welcomed Tuesday in a grandiose atmosphere, the new Chilean recruit Alexis Sanchez replaced Cengiz Ünder and brought some beautiful inspirations but nothing substantial enough to take the break.
Always as conquerors, the Brestois ended up being rewarded.
Pierre Lees-Melou obtained the equalization of a half-volley cannon shot at the entrance to the surface (61st).
The second goal was only waiting for the lucidity of Le Douaron to emerge but the striker redacted an offering from the incoming Belaïli (73rd).
Goalkeeper Ruben Blanco also proved that he could be more than a double for Pau Lopez, still injured in the psoas.
The Spaniard made two good saves after the break on (54th, 79th), the only good surprise of this meeting which again saw Payet enter at the end.
“I felt a lack of physical freshness.
We did not manage to repeat the sprints as we would have liked ”, regretted captain Valentin Rongier at the microphone of Prime Video.
Unable to restore momentum to his team with his changes, Igor Tudor could have to modify his eleven against the Canaries.
His bench, now expanded, allows him.
It remains to find the right combination, if he wants to avoid a new bronca.
