Benfica - OM: OM fall in Lisbon but can still hope

He is the providential man of Olympique de Marseille, the one capable of rekindling the flame ' every moment even in an evening where Marseille's intentions had been confirmed. skillfully extinguished by the vista and the mortuary of Lisbon. After an hour spent at home, run after the ball, & exhaust yourself without being able to to create clear situations, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put on his hero costume, he who once wore a Spiderman mask to celebrate his goals.

This evening he didn't weave&eacute; his canvas but saved Marseille's chances of seeing the semi-finals. Thus &agrav; in the 67th minute he exploited à wonderfully a straight pass towards the front from Ounahi, author of a good entry into play. More engaged; than Antonio Silva, until'à impeccable, the Gabonese had the favorable counter and took the ball in his race. He then presented himself alone in front of her. Trubin who could do nothing when he saw the attacker open his right foot and roll up a small opposite net. A goal worthy of those so dear à Thierry Henry during his glory days.

From then on, the match changed its appearance and OM began to play. believe in it, à to the extent that he took the upper hand physically and could impose an intensity on his opponent. greater than from Lisbon less available and rare è the image of Joao Neves and Rafa Silva.

Marseille's regrets, however, will not be there; and will find root in an arbitral decision. While we were still at home 2-0 in favor of the locals, Aubameyang, always him, looked à bypassing two opponents and while falling back, he was hit sideways by Joao Neves. The Portuguese midfielder took no notice of the ball but escaped the penalty for what appeared to be a clear foul. As against Panathinaïkos last Augustû, Mr. Oliver and his assistants à the video refused a valid penalty OM, not really familiar with the English official.

This would perhaps not have changed anything, especially since the Marseille attacker would finally find the fault a few minutes later but doubt will remain allowed even if Jean-Louis Gasset's men will especially regret having delivered a first period as bland and far from the level required at the same time. this stage of the competition. A weakness exploited by Rafa Silva during an action that he himself initiated, then on a perfectly negotiated counterattack. by Di Maria after returning from the locker room. Aubameyang's goal had less merit in maintaining hope for a return match which promises to be hot at the Vélodrome. A quarter-final return which will take place without Merlin, injured; &agrav; the left leg and the latest victim of the curse which affects the Marseille defenders. Fortunately, Aubameyang will be there; to show the way. See you next week.
