Lille surpasses Marseille (3-0) and is second in Ligue 1

Lille does not stop at surprises! De Losc defeated OM (3-0), who dropped and took second place on Sunday 8 the day of Ligue 1.

Four days after snatching victory in injury time against Strasbourg (3-2), OM did not follow and got a logical defeat against the top Lille who won with a double by Jonathan Bamba and another goal by Nicolas Pépé.

With an unprecedented starting position, without Dimitri Payet but with Nemanja Radonjic and Grégory Sertic, the Phocéens were rough and rarely worried about goalkeeper Mike Maignan.

Rudi Garcia's bets are paying off and OM lost its third loss in the last four games in all leagues. Marseille fell to sixth place with 13 points.

Le Losc, who was second at the start of the week, reacted well after his brutal defeat in Bordeaux (1-0) to restore his place of dauphin of the untouchable Paris SG.

Four months after rescuing his place in the elite, the Losc has been completely transfigured. After this fifth success of the season, the Dogues have confirmed that we must trust them in the battle for European places.

Lille ends strong

Better than their opponents, Christophe Galtier & # 39; s players ended strong by scoring three times, twice on penalty, in the last half hour.

Until then, the game was rather closed. Marked by a lot of technical waste and few possibilities.

The first period saw Lille dominate but struggled to reach the goal. Thus, the northerners were only one of their eight attempts in the first act.

In Marseilles, there were almost no dangerous situations. Only Florian Thauvin, compressed by the Lille public (in response to his aborted transfer in 2013), hovered. Launched by Radonjic, Thauvin, in the fight with José Fonte, who defended very well at the time, could not get out of the goal and shoot (34th).

As soon as the locker room came back, the match raced on two sides with different chances. For the Losc it was first Mendes who shot from the outside of the foot next to the door (46th), after which a rolled-up photo of Pepe died at the foot of the post Steve Mandanda (48th), just like a head of Loïc Rémy (54e).

For the Phocaeans it is Lucas Ocampos who was distinguished: after a poor control over Zeki Celik, he inherited the ball in the corner of the surface, but stumbled over Maignan, who caught the ball in two stages (47th).

Grandpa is still decisive

The Nordists were eventually rewarded for their dominance on the hour of the game: at an acceleration, Pepe, once again decisive, dropped off Luiz Gustavo and forced Mandanda to bring him out of balance in the surface. The Lille striker did justice to the penalty, which was confirmed by the CAR (1-0, 65).

Bewildered, OM reacted in action and quickly got two chances. Launched in the box, Thauvin missed his aerial photo (69th), Celik then made a miraculous return to Mitroglou, who was preparing to take a paid offer, immediately after the opening score of Losc (72).

OM had missed his chance and would be eliminated late in the match by the Losc. Pepe created a new penalty, admitted by Luiz Gustavo and transformed by Bamba (2-0, 86th), who shortly thereafter offered a double to a Ballo-Toure service (3-0, 89).

If Marseille was disappointing, the Losc has shown that this can be the surprise of the season.
