Nantes and Marseille parted back to back this Saturday during the 26th day of L1. With very few consequences in the standings.
The final stretch of the championship is not the least crowded for OM. Three days after having returned to winning against Nice (3-2), catching up on the 11th day of L1, the Marseillais could not obtain better than a sharing of points at Beaujoire, this Saturday as part of the 26th lift, against a FCN also convalescent (1-1).
Payet (69th) responded to Blas’ opener after a huge blunder from Mandanda (50th), allowing the Olympians to limit the damage in a match once again concluded on a red card – addressed to Sakai in this case , for an awkward gesture against Bamba.
Top 5 in sight for OM
Thus credited with an additional point, OM provisionally returns to a Rennes fifth and expected Sunday in Montpellier. 17 lengths from the summit and an OL which on Friday dominated Brest (2-3). At the bottom of the table, the Canaries, who since the arrival of Kombouaré on the bench have garnered four points in two games, remain 18th but now hang on to Lorient. With two more matches on the clock, however.
