Marseille, outclassed by Lille (3-0), is thrown out of the field of Ligue 1, Sunday at the end of an 8th day marked by the incidents that led to the two long interruptions of "Derby"won by Montpellier against Nimes (3-0).
Thanks to their respective victory over the same score, Lille and Montpellier took the 2nd and 3rd place in the championship behind Paris SG, an untouchable leader with an eight point lead.
Marseille punished in Lille
"We are going to wash the dirty clothes with the family because I think we have a lot to tell after such a match"The admission of Marseille captain Dimitri Payet to the microphone of Canal + after the defeat of his team is eloquent OM, led by injuries and a defense at a distance, has already made his third defeat of the season in eight days ago!
By giving his 14th, 15th and 16th goals of the season, the teammates of Steve Mandanda and Luiz Gustavo, defect in the first two Lille-goals, are 3 points on the podium … and 19th in the L1-defense championship, just before the red lantern Guingamp.
The man from Marseilles suffers pain? Nicolas Pépé, the man in the form of Lille. The Ivorian winger opened the score by changing one of the two penalties he caused himself (64th s.p.). Jonathan Bamba was responsible for converting the second (86th, s.p.) before he reached the doubled (89th).
Rudi Garcia, who had chosen to play with a very defensive formation with Payet on the bench and Grégory Sertic on the midfield, will have to find the solution quickly.
Pagaille in Montpellier
A fence that gives way under pressure from fans in madness, two interruptions, an atmosphere of cinders: Montpellier, who defeated Nimes (3-0), went through all the emotions to win the first derby in the Languedoc for 25 years, thanks by Ambroise Oyongo (28th), Andy Delort (sp 45 + 9) and Gaëtan Laborde (79th).
And yet Montpellier fans have taken the risk of losing this historic victory over green carpet by causing the break of the match twice.
First in the first half for seven minutes, when one of the fences made way under the weight of the fans who celebrated the opening of the Oyongo-score, in the 28th minute. Two people were slightly injured, one year to the day after a similar event in Amiens-Lille, where 29 Lille were injured.
After the goal of 3-0 in the 80th minute, some members of the group Butte Paillade have entered the lawn this time, making the game almost half an hour broke.
The Disciplinary Court of the League (LFP) meets Monday "to study the follow-up"to the case.
VAR and bad luck in Rennes
Again Rennes dropped two points: in numerical superiority during the second period, the Bretons at home gave a draw against Toulouse (1-1) … after having opened the score on a controversial penalty.
As a result, Rennes vegetates in 16th place. Far from the ambitious goals that were announced at the start of the season. M & # 39; Baye Niang, one of the biggest rookies in the transfer window, victim of a spectacular tackle by Jean-Clair Todibo, thought he had made it difficult to transform the punishment he caused himself (70th).
Problem with the TFC, the video assistance system for arbitration (VAR) was not available to confirm the first decision of the referee Thomas Leonard.
Driven by a sense of injustice, Todibo, a young defender of 18 years, has done his own justice by making a tie at the last minute on an unstoppable head (88th). Thanks to this unexpected result, Toulouse (7th, 12 points) remains in the right car.
