After a week of meetings and tensions with the supporters, Marseille Olympic did not really meet expectations. The players tried but very quickly the match turned against them with the expulsion of Samuel Gigot in the first period. For Benoit Cheyrou who commented on the match for Prime Video, it is not a catastrophic result to take only one point against the FC Metz home.

With the expulsion quite early in the 30th minute of play, isn’t this ultimately a good result for OM?

“In a crude way like that, taking a single point against FC Metz is not a good operation for Olympique de Marseille. But I think it’s not their worst match of the season, that’s for sure. We saw crosses, we saw strikes, we saw ambition in the game. Moumbagna was interesting and I think he will be of service to this OM team. Onana was good too. At 10 against 11, they did not suffer. So it’s certain that when you’re leading 1-0 and you’re caught from a set piece, it can be annoying and frustrating. Now, there weren’t many very sharp and very dangerous counterattacks from Messins. In these preventive markings that we could have feared in relation to the scenario that we imagined, it is not a catastrophic match on the part of OM. It’s sure that it’s frustrating to come away with only one point but with the expulsion quite early in the 30th minute of play, isn’t that ultimately a good result for OM? », questions Cheyrou on Prime’s microphone after the match.
