Although deprived of many executives, OM ended a series of seven days without a win in the league, this Wednesday at the expense of Nice (3-2).
Milik, Ntcham and Lirola not qualified for this 11th lift of L1 caught up; Benedetto and Balerdi suspended; Thauvin, Rongier and Amavi on one leg and spared at kick-off, OM did not win the less this Wednesday before Nice (3-2).

As rarely this season. Very quickly, by dint of camping in the opposing half of the field, the Olympians found the flaw, an opportunistic recovery but remarkably executed by Alvaro in the box (1-0, 14th).
Cold sweats to finish
Dominators, the Phocéens logically added strength before the break, this time thanks to Khaoui at the end of a collective action full of control (2-0, 42nd). As against Lens recently, however, the Ciel et Blanc sinned when they returned from the locker room, surprised by the inevitable Gouiri (2-1, 47th). A disappointment quickly erased, however, by the second achievement of the evening signed Khaoui, once again incisive and punchy (3-1, 53rd).
Still recovering, however, OM had to be afraid to the end, after the reduction of the gap materialized by the young Sellouki, 20, of an eccentric recovery perfectly placed in the window (3-2, 87th). At the end of additional time, Gouri still touched him wood on an ultimate free kick from the Riviera (90th + 5). Proof that the Marseillais are not quite out of the woods. There are still some great lessons to be learned from this meeting. Quickly since the Mandanda and others are expected in Nantes on Saturday at 5 p.m. Before moving on to Lyon and Lille …
