Paul Lopez: 4.5
Not questioned in the first period by the opposing strikers, the Spanish goalkeeper found a way to scare himself against Son with a dangerous gesture, albeit a winner in his area (15th). He can’t do much for Richarlison’s two goals – even if his hand is a bit soft at the opening – but the situation for him is terrible: 2 shots on target were enough for Tottenham to score 2 goals.
- In short : Evening without for the Olympic goalkeeper, addicted to the rematch.
OM, drunk with joy: “It’s the best memory we can have”
21/05/2022 At 23:45
Despite being one of OM’s most experienced players in the Champions League, the former Mancunian had brought strength and leadership in an early period dominated by his team. But he got a stupid yellow card for protesting after Mbemba’s dismissal and left Richarlison in the opening.
- In short : The scenario wasn’t ideal for him, but at this level he could do the Olympians good for the rest of the European campaign.
Is this OM stronger than last season?
He has often given Richalison a little too much space in the opening act, although he, like his counterparts, has proven solid in containing Tottenham’s offensive trio. In addition, he had allowed himself some climbs in the area that would have resulted in the first goal for Marseille. In the second half he was too short in the air to prevent the Brazilian from scoring a brace.
- In short : Mixed performance for former Spartak Moscow.
The red card weighs on his performance and the game of his entire team. And the specialists may blame him for confronting Son rather than trying to get him a little further off the axis of the door. However, in the first period, he had shown, on his debut in C1, a considerable authority in duels, such as in front of Son (44th).
- In short: C1 is played on small details and the huge mistake of the Marseille defender has certainly cost his team a result.
To his right, the former Lensois was solid defending, and still made a lot of effort to cover the entire corridor. But offensively, while OM was in the opponent’s court, we didn’t see them making enough difference as they approached the opponent’s area. Replaced by Kolasinac (70th), who risked becoming the Marseille hero with a nice cross on Harit.
- In short : Too neutral for his first in C1, he who came to Canebière to play games like that.
15 losses in 16 games, “but this time OM knows where they are going”
If Marseille excelled in the first act, they owe it above all to their captain, who has won almost all of his duels and recovered many balls. In a second period in which his team suffered, he did not hold back and multiplied his efforts, trying in vain to preserve the score.
- In short: a first period of mastery, another past to fill the gaps.
Associated with Valentin Rongier, the former Roma player also dominated the midfield, in a first act dominated by Marseille. But Veretout could still do better on the set pieces he had to manage. In the second half he is less important than his midfield mate, yielding at the end of the game to Gueye (87th).
- In short : If he shows this level against Frankfurt next week, Veretout will only be able to do his people good.
Nuno Tavares: 5
The Portuguese moped made Nuno Tavares again. The man with 3 goals in Ligue 1 this season has already been all over the place, hurt from the acceleration on the left side and kept the intensity that allowed the OM to come out with their heads held high. On the other hand, he was the symbol of this Marseille that lacked precision and sharpness in the opponents’ last 30 meters.
- In short : With a little more precision in attack, he could have allowed his team to open the scoring in the first period.
On paper, he lined up to the left of Marseille’s attack, in Tudor’s 3-4-3. In fact, the former Arsenal, booed by the public as soon as he touched the ball, was everywhere. He gave himself up to orchestrate his team’s offensive play, or to try to make a difference in attack, but his performance was too fair, even though his own shot at the end of the first period (45 ° + 1) was the most dangerous of the Olympic team.
- In short : Unsurprisingly, it’s still an important part of the man with curls.
We expected a lot from his creativity to allow OM to make a difference close to Hugo Lloris’ goal. The Brazilian has certainly distilled some good balls, but it was not enough to allow him, especially given their clumsiness, to take the advantage on the scoreboard. Replaced at 50 ‘by Balerdi.
- In short : One of the few players a bit disappointed with Marseille.
In the absence of the suspended Alexis Sanchez, the Colombian, who was playing his first Champions League match, was expected. But he was little talked about in an initial period where, however, his companions would have needed his presence in the area. When he returned from the locker room, of course, he had even fewer opportunities to express himself before leaving in favor of Amine Harit (70th), who didn’t have the advantage of making a difference on OM’s best chance. .
- In short : Sanchez’s return is expected to play against him next week against Frankfurt.
