Aouchiche’s strike is safe
Adil Aouchiche takes his chance from distance, but his line doesn’t worry Pau Lopez, who grabs it without the slightest problem.
Bamba Dieng already in action
He could have scored on his first ball! Bamba Dieng is served by Guendouzi after a high recovery, but the Senegalese falls to a good Vito Mannone.
A double change for OM
Bamba Dieng and Pape Gueye replace Alexis Sanchez and Jordan Veretout, OM’s last two scorers in this game.

Visibly affected, Laurent Abergel will make way for former Parisian Adil Aouchiche in the last 20 minutes.
Double change for OM
Igor Tudor makes a double change with Kaboré and Payet coming on for Kolasinac and Malinovskyi.
Very good defensive return from Ünder
Cengiz Ünder produced an excellent defensive return at the feet of Le Goff, who had suggested an appeal.
Le Bris takes a shot
The Lorient coach tries a strike with the exit of Ponceau replaced by Innocent. The fairy will definitely step it up a notch.
Malinovskyi misses the target
What an opportunity for OM and Ruslan Malinovskyi. The Ukrainian takes a ball with his right foot which returns to his feet but he misses the target.
Mannone goes down on the ball
Matteo Guendouzi pierces Lorient’s defensive curtain and crosses, but Vito Mannone lays down well on the ball, which was heading towards Sanchez at the far post.

Ünder is warned

As in the first period, Cengiz Ünder makes a good cross, but Samuel Gigot is guilty with one hand.

Balerdi realizes a runaway center that no one can take back. The ball ends up outside the goal.
Moffi pierces the cages!

Moffi takes the ball badly
A quickly played touch brings Terem Moffi into the penalty area but fails to take the ball correctly.
OM’s dominance is particularly reflected in this number. Olympians have 84% of the ball as the end of the first quarter approaches.
What a sequence by Mbemba
Chancel Mbemba had dashed into the opposite area and inherited the ball. The Marseille defender continues as a striker, but his recovery is too far removed.
The embers are in a corner
Since the start of the meeting, Lorient has only existed defensively and has been drawn into its own cages.
Mannone’s decisive save!
Kolasinac finds Ünder in the center. The Turk takes over in the first attempt with a header, but Mannone makes an exceptional save.
Under light the first wick
Cengiz Ünder is served back on a corner from Malinovskyi and fires a cross that ends up in Mannone’s gloves.

The composition of OM with Malinovskyi holder

Marseillais arrived at the stadium
Barely an hour from the start of the match, Marseillais and the latest rookie Ruslan Malinovskyi arrived at the Stade Vélodrome.
The Lorient Group
With Terem Moffi, who may live one of his last matches in the Lorient shirt, since he is announced in Nice’s sights.
OM slightly diminished
If Marseille can count on Merlus on its latest recruit, Ruslan Malinovskyi, it will be deprived of Jonathan Clauss, as Igor Tudor announced at a press conference on Friday, while Dimitri Payet is uncertain.
