Football: OM lose at home against Frankfurt in the Champions League


For their second Champions League match, OM lost on their lawn against Eintracht Frankfurt (0-1). Dominators, the Marseilles were weighed down by their offensive inefficiency and already have two defeats in as many games in this competition. Qualification for the round of 16 is already complicated.

Definitely, OM can’t do it in the Champions League. Too messy, the Marseillais lost at home to an opportunistic goal from Jesper Lindstrom (43rd) who took advantage of a bad intervention from Valentin Rongier. OM are already seeing qualification for the round of 16 become more complicated. Dominating, the Olympians were sorely lacking in efficiency and technical accuracy to hope for a better result.

In particular in the second half when Igor Tudor reviewed his entire offensive line in order to revitalize a formation still struck by the opener conceded just before the break. In the wake of a very strong Amine Harit, the Phocaeans sent many shivers through the German defense but failed to shake the nets. The clearest opportunity came in the 66th minute with this shot from Valentin Rongier, almost point-blank, deflected by Kevin Trapp.

In the second half, we tried to push to get back to the score but he missed this last gesture, this goal to be rewarded. We must not throw everything away either, we will have to continue to work, “summarized midfielder Jordan Veretout at the microphone of Canal +.
