Troyes OM fifth victory in a row for Marseille

Troyes-OM. Perfect evening for Olympique de Marseille tonight in Ligue 1. The Olympians won 2-0 against Troyes after goals from Sead Kolasinac and Jordan Veretout. Thanks to this victory, the Marseillais nibble points on Lens.

23:40 – End of the live!

Thank you all for following this live of the Troyes – OM match. See you soon on L’ for other news.

23:30 – The good operation of OM

By winning this evening in Troyes, Olympique de Marseille carried out the good operation of the 18th day of Ligue 1. The Marseillais took advantage of Rennes’ defeat at Clermont earlier in the evening to widen the gap with the 4th place: Igor Tudor’s players are now five points ahead of Rennes.

23:20 – OM far above

Despite ESTAC’s game plan, OM put their foot on the ball from the start of the game. The Trojans have never managed to hinder the Marseillais with high pressing. If Chancel Mbemba opened the scoring in the 10th minute of play, Jordan Veretout completed the scoring after returning from the locker room, sealing the fate of Troyes.

23:10 – Malinovskiy in the history of OM

Coming into play in the 67th minute of play, Ruslan Malinovskiy became the very first Ukrainian player to play a Ligue 1 match with Marseille and the 8th overall in the history of the championship.

23:00 – 5/5 for OM

Thanks to this success this evening during the 18th day of Ligue 1 in Troyes (2-0), Olympique de Marseille continues its good series and achieves a fifth success in a row in the French championship.

22:52 – End of the match at the Stade de l’Aube (0-2)!

The score advantage (0-2) of Olympique Marseille is rather logical in view of the stats offered after this confrontation. The Marseillais indeed had a slight advantage in terms of ball possession (43%-57%) but also and above all proved to be more dangerous by framing more shots (3 shots against 1 for ESTAC Troyes).

22:51 – Three minutes of additional time

As in the first period, three minutes of play were added to regulation time in the second half.

22:49 – Too much commitment for Palmer-Brown

After many blocked balls, Palmar-Brown is in the fight with Malinovsky to recover the ball. The ESTAC defender tackles but takes everything in his path. Hakim Ben El Hadj logically whistles the foul in favor of OM.

22:46 – Pau Lopez anticipates well

After a long deep Trojan pass for Bruus, Pau Lopez anticipates the trajectory of the pass and clears directly into touch without taking any risks.

22:43 – Pope Gueye imprecise

At the end of the effort on the left side, Pape Gueye receives the ball but his cross ends directly in touch on the opposite side.

22:41 – Malinovsky flagged offside

After a call in depth on the right side, Ruslan Malinovski is offset by Chancel Mbemba. The Ukrainian midfielder is reported offside.

22:39 – Gigot’s angry tackle

After a slip from Chancel Mbemba, Yasser Larouci begins a counter-attack for ESTAC. The midfielder shifts Abdu Conté who is tackled in a rough way by Samuel Gigot. The Marseille defender took the opportunity to hail the OM supporters present.

22:35 – Larouci enters

With more than ten minutes left in regulation time, Yasser Larouci replaced Renaud Ripart.

22:33 – New replacements for OM

Double changes for Igor Tudor: Alexis Sanchez and Sead Kolasinac give way to Bamba Dieng and Pape Gueye.

22:32 – Ripart warned

After a hot situation in the Marseille area, Samuel Gigot releases the ball but he is mowed down late by Renaud Ripart who is warned of a yellow card by Hakim Ben El Hadj.

22:29 – Tardieu comes into play

First replacement for ESTAC: Florian Tardieu replaces Kouamé N’Guessan.

22:27 – Malinovsky already warned

Barely entered the game, Ruslan Malinovsky receives a yellow card for a slight delayed tackle on Mama Baldé.

22:25 – First change for OM

The new Marseille recruit Ruslan Malinovsky makes his debut with OM. The Ukrainian midfielder replaces Issa Kaboré.

22:24 – Under misses the 3-0!

Shifted by Jordan Veretout in the surface of ESTAC, Cengiz Under unscrews his shot which flies well above the cages of Mateusz Lis.

22:22 – What a return from Marseille

The Marseillais are one tonight in Troyes. While Alexis Sanchez centered in the Trojan area, ESTAC began a counter-attack with Tierno Baldé but that was without counting on the defensive returns of Sead Kolasinac and Leonardo Balerdi.

22:17 – Big foul by Chavalerin

After a touch from Issa Kaboré, Alexis Sanchez controls with a header but the Chilean is held back by Xavier Chavalerin who commits an indisputable fault.

22:15 – Kolasinac comes close to the target

After a pass from Valentin Rongier for Sead Kolasinac, the Bosnian adjusted Mateusz Lis with a cross shot from the left but his attempt was too cross.

22:13 – Mbemba at the limit of anti-game

After a loss of ball to the detriment of Mama Baldé, Chancel Mbemba retains the Trojan striker who obtains a free kick. An opportunity that gives nothing.

22:12 – The Trojans overtaken

Since the goal of the break for OM, the ESTAC players seem to be in trouble and can no longer put their foot on the ball.

22:06 – Veretout takes the break!

We should not be late for the second period! After a pass from Sead Kolasinac, Jordan Veretout only had to push the ball into the empty goal to allow OM to lead 2-0.
