EN DIRECT – Betis-OM: Marseille laisse échapper la victoire, Pau Lopez sort blessé


It’s over ! (1-1)

A bit chaotic end to the match in Chesterfield, where the final whistle sounded after these tensions between the players. Milik thought he had given victory to OM in the 87th minute, before Rodri equalized almost immediately.

After two consecutive defeats in this preparation, the Marseillais leave with a draw but still appear in running-in.
