L & # 39; Olympique de Marseille lost on Thursday the game of the last chance in the Europa League in Lazio (1-2). The Marseillais are eliminated from the fourth day.
The match: 2-1
Rudi Garcia has invented the traditional recipe of any team in a crisis of results. Has his OM lost his last three games, taking water from all sides, with an average of two goals conceded per game? Not bad, he strengthened the base, setting an unprecedented 5-4-1 against Lazio for the game of the last chance in the Europa League. But this formula had the same taste as the others: OM still had two goals …
This system was not the only innovation of the Marseille coach. There was a new left side, with Lucas Ocampos in piston and the Maxime Lopez wing. The building held on for 45 minutes. The Marseilles dominated the Italians, they were not taken in default and found some surprising positions. Without being very impressive, Strakosha released all his attempts (23rd, 43rd), including a shot from zero by Sakai (7th).
The Italians only needed half a chance to make this building waver. A balloon bell by Ciro Immobile. Duje Caleta-Car is moved by Marco Parolo. The Lazio captain touches the ball of the head, which goes to die in the door, very slowly (45 ° + 1). They doubled the lead on their first attack built at 55. Joaquin Correa found himself alone against Pelé, who adjusted under his breath.
The Marseilles have had a reaction of pride. After a high recovery by Morgan Sanson, Florian Thauvin was ideally served at the center to reduce the gap (60th). Rudi Garcia has therefore released a final card: Dimitri Payet. The problem is that the French national lost everything. The other thing is that Simone Inzaghi did the same thing with Sergei Milinkovic-Savic. The entry of the Serbian fluidized the game of Lazio. Opportunities have multiplied (71 °, 73 °, 76 °). Also the stops of Pelé. It did not change the result and the consequences. The OM lost and is eliminated from the Europa League after four games of the competition, of which he is a finalist in the title.
The OM took only one point in four Europa League games, the draw (2-2) against Apollon Limassol.
Player: Ocampos left the piston, for review
As he did last year with Bouna Sarr, Rudi Garcia tested Lucas Ocampos for a new side job. And as the former right-wing, the Argentine showed a good agreement for this position. On the left side, it has multiplied the decisive interventions, mainly in the first period, and has resumed cleanly. However, he took a yellow card for an uncontrolled tackle on Marusic, with his foot off the ground. A gesture of attack …
Eintracht and Lazio already qualified
Beating Apollon Limassol (3-2), Eintracht Frankfurt qualified for the 32-man round in the Europa League. The Germans are three points ahead of Lazio, also guaranteed to leave Group H.
