Ligue 1: still lost for Montpellier against Marseille

Ligue 1: still lost for Montpellier against Marseille

Montpellier Hérault SC logically lost in Marseille against OM (2-0), Sunday April 10 at the end of the 31st day of Ligue 1. With this setback, the Dall’Oglio team got bogged down in mid-table despite the return of Rémy Cabella.

The Velodrome is really not the ideal ground for redemption. It is not the right place to recover after a defeat in front of Brest (1-2) at Mosson, weighing down for the end of the season. Montpellier, which earns little in Marseille, lost there again.

He fell without denying any of his know-how, but rather threw himself head first into the mouth of OM, once again becoming the dolphin of PSG. Monday morning, Olivier Dall’Oglio’s team will navigate between two waters. To do better than this 11th place, she can count on Rémy Cabella. Back in Montpellier, for the end of the season and more so, he played the last half hour against OM, whom he knows so well.

Léo Leroy titular as sentry

The Montpellier Ultras were there. The supporters of La Butte Paillade and Armata Ultra, who returned to the stadium last week, did not want to miss it. They struggled to make their voices heard at the heart of the two bends of the Vélodrome. Just like the team of Olivier Dall’Oglio against this OM, caught up in the imperative of finding the Champions League.

Just like in Paris, with the leader in September, Montpellier bowed to his game instinct. To his desire to be faithful to his collective principles, to his desire to move forward. With Léo Leroy, to replace the sentry Joris Chotard injured in the right knee, Olivier Dall’Oglio made the bet to challenge OM right in the game. Montpellier played, rather well, but paid for his naivety.

The Montpellier defense trapped

In front of the Marseillais, with Amine Harit as a false center forward, he let himself go towards the goal of Steve Mandanda, tenured in the league at the expense of the Spanish goalkeeper Pau Lopez. His defense formed by the Sakho-Estève duo, with Cozza shifted to the left side, was sucked into this momentum.

After twenty minutes, she had been trapped behind her by the speed of Harit and especially Bamba Dieng. The Senegalese striker completed the first goal (8th) and a service from Harit. Then, in the 19th minute, he provoked a foul from Jordan Ferri, who returned in a hurry, and a penalty, converted by the Turkish winger Under.

As Stephy Mavididi, positioned in the center forward, still ran out of fuel on two occasions (14th, 39th), Montpellier did not have the means to recover. And he lost his goalkeeper Jonas Omlin, sent off in the 89th minute. Cursed grass this Velodrome.
