OM won in Montpellier (2-3) on Sunday at the end of the first day of Ligue 1. The Marseillais trailed 2-0 and the match was suspended a few minutes after a missile launch.
Marseille fans may have seen the start of a crazy season. He led 2-0 before the break after a goal against his Luan Peres camp (30me) and Gaetan Laborde (34me), the Marseillais overthrew the Héraultais in a way reminiscent of Marcelo Bielsa’s crazy season.
It was the first Cengiz Ünder, very leggy in Montpellier, who revived OM after a magnificent overflow from Konrad de La Fuente (68me). Then Dimitri Payet took off his life jacket by scoring a sublime double. First, a free kick that crossed the Montpellier wall (75me) before offering himself a solo goal (80me).
“I am happy with this game, with all the emotions experienced, I hope it continues,” said Jorge Sampaoli, Marseille coach. We must continue with the idea of representing Marseille well. It’s very good to win in Montpellier, a very difficult terrain. It was a strange ending to the game, really strange because the game was not aggressive. It was an interesting game for the public. “
However, this crazy game was interrupted after several missile launches on the pitch that caused it to be interrupted for ten minutes. These incidents expose the MHSC to League sanctions (LFP).
Thanks to this first success at La Mosson, where he had not won since February 2, 2016, OM, undefeated during preparation, the ideal would be to launch his season, before meeting again with the Stade Vélodrome on Sunday against his old rival Bordeaux.
