Olympique de Marseille wasted, far too much wasted to hope to come away with three points against valiant Toulouse. The Marseillais had the chances to win this match but never found the net. Like their attackers Amine Harit and Vitinha, the Olympians were sorely lacking in realism against the Toulouse goal, particularly in the last quarter of an hour. The closer the match got to its end, the more muddled, or even sloppy, the Marseille offensives became.
The Marseillais, without solutions in the face of a tough and compact Toulouse defense, rushed and were extremely imprecise in the last gesture. Olympian coach Marcelino's game plan still seems quite vague for the moment. OM signs a third draw in five Ligue 1 days and is in third place in Ligue 1, two points behind leader Monaco.
For their part, Toulouse were united defensively and made a lot of effort to contain the Marseille waves. The Violets goalkeeper, Guillaume Restes, made some great saves to keep his team in the match.
Toulouse attackers Frank Magris and Thijs Dallinga even had the biggest chances in the last ten minutes of the match. The Violets can blame themselves, they could have made the perfect move and left with the three points from the Vélodrome. TFC placed twelfth in Lige 1 after this draw.
