Lille-Marseille: we found Cabella, Henrique got it all wrong... The tops and the flops


A successful bet for Paulo Fonseca. The Lille coach, who has won unanimous support in the North since his arrival last season, was right by starting Rémy Cabella against OM (3-1), Friday, during the 28th day of Ligue 1. The former French international, often a substitute this season, put in a great performance during this shock. Skillful on set pieces, and inspired in the game. His technical accuracy and his activity, on the left wing or in the center, hurt OM very badly. The 34-year-old concluded his great evening by doubling the lead, with a superb curling shot which came to clean Lopez's top corner (71st). A goal... à la Mbappé. “I watch Kylian Mbappé a lot. And in my action, I think about it,” he tells Amazon Prime Video.

In a perfectly established Losc on a collective level, Tiago Santos confirmed his good dispositions on the right side of the defense. The Portuguese full-back, accomplice with Zhegrova in front of him, continued the climbs in his lane. The yellow card received at the start of the match did not disturb the former Estoril player, who was omnipresent throughout the match. And author of a perfect assist for Gudmundsson on the third and final goal of this precious victory for the Mastiffs (84th).


“We gave away the match, we were lousy (...) It’s shameful.” Jean-Louis Gasset did not provide details at the microphone of Amazon Prime Video after the meeting. Furious. Far from the smiles displayed during his debut on the Marseille bench, the Marseille coach saw his men sink into this shock. Long harmless and only dangerous through Aubameyang, the Marseillais resisted defensively in the first half, before collapsing after returning from the locker room. Lille's three goals were all the result of three rather gross losses of the ball. On a technical level, OM have never compared to Lille, more than ever credible candidates for the Champions League.

Bad evening for Luis Henrique. Returned to the right lane of the attack, the Marseille winger was completely wrong on Pierre-Mauroy's pitch. Clumsy and messy in the first period, like a poorly negotiated counter (33rd) and a much too soft shot (42nd), the Brazilian clearly showed his limits. His loss of the ball at the origin of the penalty converted by David (54th) precipitated the fall of OM in this match which was so important in the race for the Champions League.

Mbemba forfeited, OM relied on the return of Samuel Gigot in the central hinge. The Marseille captain, starting for the first time in almost a month, symbolized the collapse of the Marseille club in this match. In difficulty on Lille's counterattacks, the 30-year-old was guilty of Lille's first two goals. Author of the mistake which causes David's penalty (53rd), and far too much of a spectator against Cabella, without opposition to double the lead (71st).
