OM saved themselves a stinging defeat on a huge blunder from Mandanda, this Saturday in Nantes, as part of the 26th day of L1 (1-1).
These are two teams in need of confidence who faced each other this Saturday on the lawn of Beaujoire. Two teams that had just returned to winning. This Saturday on behalf of the 26th lift of Ligue 1, Nantes and Marseillais shared the points (1-1). Visitors are certainly doing better than the locals …
After a tasteless first period indeed, the Olympians cracked on a big blunder from Mandanda – a ball missed in the middle of the box after a back pass from Alvaro, with Blas in ambush to conclude in the empty cage (1-0, 50th ). Payet, at the end of a well-conducted action, still set the record straight on a center from Nagatomo (1-1, 69th). The only stroke of brilliance of Phocaeans decidedly well limited.
“We are not cured”, admits Payet
“It’s a team that is not cured, conceded at the final whistle on Canal + the Marseille scorer of the day. We need confidence and to find pleasure together. The points taken recently are unifying in our situation. “In crisis on the ground as behind the scenes, while waiting for a new coach, OM is climbing somehow up to Rennes, expected fifth in Montpellier on Sunday.
For its part, the FCN, who finished the game in numerical superiority after the expulsion of Sakai for an awkward gesture on Bamba (90 + 3rd), takes a fourth point in two matches with Kombouaré on the bench. Not enough to get out of the day but encouraging in the race to maintain.
