OM take a big slap in Turkey / Europa League


The Marseille club, beaten Thursday night by Galatasaray (4-2), is eliminated from the Europa League.

Only a victory counted for OM. By losing Thursday night in Turkey against Galatasaray (4-2), Sampaoli’s men said goodbye to qualifying for the 16e Europa League final. After this 5e and the penultimate day of the group stage, the Marseillais can no longer finish in second place occupied by Lazio, winner at the same time in Moscow (0-3).

In a hostile atmosphere, like muscular duels and a few throwing bottles from Turkish supporters, OM lacked address in front of goal, like Dieng. The Senegalese striker, who had forced Muslera to venture outside his area (5e), found the transverse (42e) but missed the frame when returning from the locker room (47e).

Galatasaray, on the other hand, exploited his three shots of the first period by scoring twice, by Cicaldau (1-0, 12th) before Caleta-Car took a wrong turn on Lopez on a shot from the same Romanian (2-0 , 30e).

Feghouli, quietly lonely at the far post, sank OM at the conclusion of a lost ball at the thirty meters from Marseille (3-0, 64e) but the penalty transformed into two stages by Milik (3-1, 68e) had a faint hope

The comeback, to score three more times, still looked like an impossible feat, especially after the skylight cleaned by the incoming Babel (4-1, 83e). Milik reduced the score again, with a header (4-2, 85e), for the last thrill of this Marseille Black Thursday.

On the last day, at the Velodrome against Lokomotiv Moscow, OM will be able to obtain a ticket for the play-offs of the Europa League Conference, ensuring the 3e square. Funny consolation.
