Benoit Bastien referee of OM - PSG, why the Marseillais are not happy

Benoît Bastien will referee the Classico this Sunday, March 31. He will be at the whistle of this poster for the seventh time, and so far, the results are not bad. the advantage of the Marseillais.

This Sunday March 31 will be held at the Vélodrome stadium the 107th Classico in the history between ;#39;Olympique de Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain. The clash between the leader of the Parisian championship and its Marseille rival promises to be intense, with Jean-Louis Gasset's team doing better in recent weeks and the Parisians being efficient and undefeated. oacute;placement.

While waiting for the line-ups for the clash, the referee was called upon. announced by the LFP. It will be Benoît Bastien who will be on the Classic whistle, for the 8th time in his career. He will be assisted of Hicham Zakrani and Aurlien Berthomieu on the keys, Marc Bollenger as fourth referee and J  ;rémie Pignard and Hamid Guenaoui à the video.

This announcement is not good news for the people of Marseille. The players of the city&eac; Phocéenne have in fact never woné against PSG when the 40-year-old referee was in charge. He even was strongly criticized by the former president of OM Jacques-Henri Eyraud during Classico&nbsp ;of 2018. Mr. Bastien had then canceled the equalizing goal from Kostas Mitroglou for a questionable foul on Marquinhos. In total, Marseille's record is six defeats and one draw during the ClassicoRefereed by Benoît Bastien. He also refereed OM have won three times this season, for three defeats (!) against OM. Monaco, Lens and Olympique Lyonnais. In total, the Parisians have a largely positive record when they are refereed by Benoît Bastien (35 wins, 6 draws and 6 losses). made), unlike &agrav; OM (7 wins, 10 draws and 18 losses). It is still appropriate to put these figures into perspective with the overall results of the two teams. Indeed, Benoît Bastien generally referees the biggest matches, and OM did not perform much in the match. facing the top Ligue 1 teams in recent years.

In addition to the referee, the list of absentees gives little hope to the Marseillais. Jean-Louis Gasset must indeed face à numerous injuries, and will have to manage on Sunday without eight of his players: Bamo Meïté, Valentin Rongier, Amir Murillo,&nbsp ;Samuel Gigot, Jean Onana, Pape Gueye, Ismaïla Sarr and Ulisses Garcia. A hard blow for the Marseille coach, who on the contrary imagined recovering players with the international break, "There are people in the locker room who tell me They take days off. We will recover, and we will try to ensure the final sprint as best as possible, in the same state of mind as #39 ;we got."
