MONACO-OM. Olympique de Marseille snatch a precious success from Louis II against AS Monaco this Sunday, November 13 on the occasion of the 15th day of Ligue 1 in a meeting marked by the serious injury of Amine Harit.
OM snatched a precious success from Monaco (3-2) in the last Ligue 1 match before the 2022 World Cup. In the first period, it was the Olympians who proved to be the most dangerous. From the start of the match, Nuno Tavares misses a huge opportunity when he was alone against Nübel. Harit, Clauss or even Veretout will also create chances before Alexis Sanchez breaks the Monegasque padlock with an exceptional free kick (35th). But OM’s lead will be short-lived. A little less than ten minutes later, Diatta enters the area and is jostled by Balerdi. The referee designates the penalty spot and converts it with a subtle panenka (45′). After returning from the locker room, AS Monaco took the measure of OM without however creating a host of opportunities. Pau Lopez had to intervene on some opposing flashes but never seemed to overflow. But the real fact of the game of this second period comes at the hour mark. After a duel with Axel Disasi, Amine Harit remains on the ground and complains about the knee with an alarmist look. The reaction of the players around is equally alarming. The Moroccan seems seriously injured a week before the start of the World Cup when he was selected with the Atlas Lions. Dimitri Payet, himself affected by the situation, will replace his teammate. After this incident, OM were surprised by a goal from Volland left strangely alone by Balerdi (73rd). After this achievement by the German, the mission seemed to get tougher for the Olympians but they will show courage to come back to level thanks to a superb goal from Veretout (83rd) before going back in front at the end of added time on a header from Kolasinac (90+7). Madness then took hold of the stands where the Marseille supporters celebrated the success with dignity with the players. In the standings and before the international break, the Marseillais come back to a small point of the podium while the Monegasques are 6th.
Mattéo Guendouzi had a moving thought for Amine Harit who was certainly seriously injured in this Monaco – OM: “It’s very difficult, it was a dream for him to play the World Cup again. I hope with all my heart that he will recover as soon as possible because he is an essential player for us. It is for him that we found the strength to win.”
Axel Disasi was very angry after the end of this Monaco – OM and severely tackled the referee of the match: “In the last 15 minutes, the referee was clearly for Marseille because there was no fault on the free kick by Dimitri Payet. It costs us the game.”
This Monaco – OM ends with images of communion between the Marseille supporters and their players in this last meeting before the 2022 World Cup. The Olympians return to one point of the podium.
After this duel, possession of the ball is slightly to the advantage of Olympique Marseille (58% against 42% for AS Monaco), which therefore wins (2-3). However, AS Monaco created the most chances with 8 shots on target against 3 shots on target for Olympique Marseille.
