Brittany is doing well in Marseille. Jorge Sampaoli’s men brought back the three points from Brest and with style (4-1) on Sunday at the end of the 28th day of Ligue 1.
And it is the usual substitutes who have especially made people talk about them. Arkadiusz Milik, unhappy with his playing time, showed he was in good shape. After his double against Basel on Thursday, the Pole delivered a still very successful performance at the Francis Le Blé stadium.
First passer on the opener of Gerson’s score from the start (1-0 3rd), Milik also offered himself a goal shortly after the hour mark. Ideally placed and forgotten at the mark on the corner, his head deceived Marco Bizot to allow OM to make the break (2-0, 63rd).
And there is another who was keen to silence the critics. Taking advantage of the absence of Dimitri Payet for discomfort in the thigh, Amine Harit confirmed Marseille’s domination by scoring, on a repelled strike from Gerson (3-0, 71st).
The Brazilian, scorer on the first goal then passer in spite of himself, he again showed that Sampaoli was right on his “joker”. The Marseillais hinted at a worsening of the score with the head of Bakambu who found the post of the Brest goalkeeper (89th), because on this recovery from Lopez, Cengiz Ünder, barely entered the game, beat Bizot to score the last goal of the evening.
Full of confidence before Nice
Opposite, however, Brest did not deserve. Not extinguished after the rapid opening of the score, the Brestois, on the contrary, increased in power, multiplying the attempts to deceive Pau Lopez like this strike from Youcef Belaïli (28th), these two feints from Le Douaron (57th ) or even this tap from the Marseille goalkeeper to keep the clean sheet (80th). But it was without counting on the head of Cardona in additional time to save the honor (3-1, 90th + 1).
Michel Der Zakarian’s players may harbor regrets but have come across formidable efficiency Marseille players.
This victory in any case allows OM to regain second place in Nice, before their shock next Sunday (8:45 p.m.). For Brest, this defeat leaves them in 13th place in Ligue 1 on equal points with Reims.
