Marseille thrashes Sporting in an afternoon to forget about Adam

Olympique de Marseille beat Sporting de Portugal 4-1 in a match in which Adán cannot be ignored. The Spanish goalkeeper had an afternoon to forget, allowing Alexis Sánchez to equalize, missing a dangerous pass in Harit’s 2-1 and seeing the red card minutes later in a bad start. The team from Marseille, after having suffered 16 defeats in their last 17 Champions League games, breathes in a group in which each point will be key in the final standings.

If we had to give someone an example that football is an unpredictable sport and in which things happen that nobody imagines, Marseille-Sporting should be a paradigmatic case. The first 30 minutes in the Velodrome were a dose of total adrenaline that ended up condemning the people from Lisbon, who went ahead in the second 52 through Trincao and they even had chances to go 0-2 before the tenth minute.

But, due to circumstances that are difficult to explain, Marseille turned the game around in record time. Not without the tireless help of Adam, who signed ten minutes to forget and that will probably never be repeated in such a short interval.. The Spanish goalkeeper allowed, with a poor clearance that Alexis tied. That goal revived Marseille, which seemed already fallen on the precipice and rose straight towards the goal, which is what his motto says.

As if that were not enough for Adán, in Marseille’s second goal, materialized by Harit after an extraordinary cross from Clauss, he lost the ball that made it possible for Tudor’s team to counter. And, to top it off, he self-expelled with a bad start in which he touched the ball with his hand in a play in which Alexis Sánchez was left alone in front of the goal. The afternoon couldn’t get any worse for Sporting, who once again had a nightmare in their goal. Franco Israel, who came on for Edwards after Adán’s expulsion, ate Alexis’s center in a corner and allowed Marseille to go 3-1 at halftimean unthinkable result after the flagrant superiority of Sporting in the first ten minutes.

After the break, Amorim brought in Alexandropoulos, Nazinho and Marsâ to try to get close to Pau López’s goal. As expected, the dizzying pace of the first half tame and the second half was much more enjoyable in general. Marseille, who slept the match with the ball, further increased their lead with a goal from Mbemba, who was, together with Guendouzi and Harit, the best of the match. A win that makes the Tudors breathe before a hellish marathon of matches.
