17/09/20 – 23:25 – Saint-Etienne hits the perfect shot
After its prestigious success at the Parc des Princes last Sunday (0-1), Olympique de Marseille had the firm intention to follow up against AS Saint-Etienne, another team which had a successful start to the season, before the reception of another direct competitor for the Champions League on Sunday, namely Losc. It was without counting the offensive inclinations of Saint-Etienne of Claude Puel, who came to play and to win. Author of a big start to the match, ASSE was quickly rewarded. Romain Hamouma cuts the trajectory of a cross signed Yvann Maçon to deceive Steve Mandanda in the sixth minute of the match (0-1). Behind, Aouchiche (8th and 17th) comes close to doubling the bet but lacks accuracy in the last gesture. OM cannot react and we will have to wait for half-time and the changes made by Villas-Boas to see the Marseillais be dangerous. Marley Aké takes a cross from Thauvin but finds the bar (53rd), before Sanson then Thauvin (55th) completely misses each other within six meters. With success, the Greens are round back and will then double the bet on their first opportunity of the second period thanks to Denis Bouanga (0-2, 73rd), after an ideal service from Arnaud Nordin. Thanks to this success, the first for 41 years at the Vélodrome for the Greens, AS Saint-Etienne also takes the lead of the League 1.
09/17/20 – 23:14 – OM misses the mark
Four days after their prestigious victory at the Parc des Princes on Sunday evening (0-1), OM failed to continue this evening, with perhaps a share of responsibility for André Villas-Boas, who was perhaps a little mistaken in his starting lineup tonight against the Greens. Balerdi was in great difficulty in defense at an unusual left-back position while the absence of a number nine complicated the task of the Marseillais over the meeting. The Portuguese coach has also restored the bar at half-time, with two changes at half-time.
With this third victory in three matches, after the successes against Lorient (2-0) and Strasbourg (2-0), AS Saint-Etienne takes the lead in Ligue 1. The only team with three successes after three days, Saint-Etienne is ahead of Rennes, Monaco and Lille. OM, with this first defeat of the season, slipped to 8th place.
Florian Thauvin was necessarily disappointed at the microphone of Téléfoot, after the final whistle of this meeting between OM and ASSE (0-2): “They scored a goal quickly in that game and then we had chances to come back but we didn’t convert those chances and it killed us. You can’t afford to have so many chances and not have them. we will have to work on the finish. When we do not score, we cannot win and we will need better. “ For his part, Denis Bouanga, scorer tonight for ASSE, was obviously delighted: “Personally, I am rising crescendo because I was not good at all against Lorient, but thanks to the staff I am better today. We have had a good state of mind from the start, we do not give up, we play for each other, and we have to continue like this. “
It’s over at the Stade Vélodrome! Olympique de Marseille lost to AS Saint-Etienne this Thursday evening (0-2), during the late match of the 1st day of Ligue 1. Romain Hamouma (6th) and Denis Bouanga (73rd) are the two evening scorers from Saint-Etienne.
