the huge disappointment of Mattéo Guendouzi


  • Galatasaray




Too fragile defensively, Olympique de Marseille sank on Thursday against Galatasaray (2-4) on the occasion of the fifth day of the group stages of the Europa League. A significant setback since it is synonymous with elimination of the competition for the band at Jorge Sampaoli. With four points behind the second place occupied by Lazio, OM will now have to secure their third place against Lokomotiv Moscow, on December 9, in order to be transferred to the Europa League Conference. Questioned at the microphone of RMC Sport at the end of the meeting, Mattéo Guendouzi, one of the best Olympians of the evening, tried to explain this bitter failure. If the disappointment is immense, the Marseille midfielder still promises a reaction from Sunday, in Ligue 1, against Troyes.

“We were keen to get out of this raised hen. We can only blame us and our missed opportunities during our first confrontations. There were several games where we deserved to win. It’s a huge disappointment for us tonight. We are all down on this elimination but we must focus on the Troyes match (Sunday in Ligue 1) and we will see what will happen in relation to the new competition. I don’t think it’s a problem of intensity or duels. We may have been less aggressive than them, but it is above all on the technical level that we have missed a lot of things. We did not know how to play as we know how to do and that is what is costing us the defeat tonight against Galatasaray. ”
