1 minute of additional time
The rhythm picks up again a few seconds before the break.
Bizot not reassuring
The Brest goalkeeper is guilty in turn of a small inaccuracy when clearing the ball. He sends it straight to Milik’s head, as Ünder was prowling.
Milik borders on correctional
Already warned, the Polish striker nudged Lees-Melou again and narrowly escaped the red card…
Sanchez warming up
The Chilean rookie joins Payet and Bakambu on the edge of the lawn.
OM score with their pistons! On the right, Ünder plays his short corner with Clauss who sends a millimeter center in the race of Tavares at the far post. Already a scorer last week, the Portuguese fixed Bizot with a flat foot recovery, 1-0!
OM in the hard
Despite a good start to the match, the Olympians no longer manage to be dangerous and therefore concede red waves.
The Douaron finds the post!!
Brest is close to the first goal! On a counter-attack, Pereira crosses Le Douaron from the left. Blanco is beaten but saved by the left upright!
The inaccuracies are linked
On one side as on the other, the transmissions are more and more muddled at the heart of this first period.
Der Zakarian called to order
Untenable in his technical area, the Brest coach receives a yellow card in turn.
Honorat forgotten on the right
New interesting ball catch for Honorat, who takes advantage of the spaces on the right. His center back is intercepted by Mbemba.
It gets complicated
Undoubtedly not helped by slippery ground, the actors have had more difficulty finding each other and chaining for several minutes.
New corner for Brest
From the right, Honorat plays back on Magnetti, whose shot from the right escapes Blanco’s frame.
Lees-Melou is doing well
Author of a high foot on Milik, the Brest midfielder narrowly escapes the yellow card.
52% possession and 2 shots to 1 for OM since the start of the match.
Cardboard for Milik
Author of an elbow forward on Chardonnet in an aerial duel, the Marseille center-forward received the first warning of the match.
Big scare for Blanco
The Marseille goalkeeper narrowly avoided the tackle from Le Douaron to extend a back pass from Balerdi into his goal…
Lees-Melou takes his chance
The midfielder does not ask questions in front of the opposing surface following a corner. His shot is clearly above.
Brest sets up
Like a first corner obtained, the Pirates manage to keep the ball in the opposing camp. OM have more difficulty projecting themselves.
Honorat was still there
The Brest winger had again gone deep and tried to volley a cross from Brassier from 50 meters. It is ultimately too short.
Lees-Melou is getting married
The Brestoire rookie had seen Honorat leave, very active in this start, but he sends his pass directly into touch.
Milik misses the ball
New tumble from Tavares on the left. His cross towards Milik cannot be taken over by the Polish striker, who throws himself to try to take it from the chest. The Breton defense recovers.
No observation round
Great start to the game from both teams. There is currently no time-out, despite the pouring rain.
What heat in front of the Brest goal! At the end of a lightning transition, Guendouzi goes there alone on the left of the surface. In a tight angle, he stumbles on Bizot, then substituted by his defense just in front of Milik. The 1-0 was very close for OM!
Honorat is missing
Perfectly found behind Tavares, Honorat tries a half-volley cross. This flies directly over Blanco’s goal.
Tavares loses his support
Bothered by the slippery lawn, the Marseille rookie found himself on the ground in his left lane on the first Olympian offensive. Brest recovers the ball.
Let’s go between Brest and Marseille!
The kick off of the match is given by the Marseillais in the rain! Excellent evening to all!
The two teams are expected back on the lawn in a few moments.
Brest used to shaking the nets
Der Zakarian’s side have scored at least two goals in their last three games.
Tudor talks about the Payet case
Igor Tudor on Prime Video, on the strong choice to leave Dimitri Payet on the bench again: “There are other important players on the bench. I’m a lucky coach since I have an important bench. But that doesn’t does not mean that some will not play the next game.”
An XXL Marseille bench
In addition to the presence of Payet and Sanchez, the OM bench will be very supplied with the rookies Veretout and Sanchez, without forgetting Gueye or Caleta-Car.
Two groups almost complete
If Brest is deprived only of Fadiga, injured, OM will not be able to count on their titular goalkeeper, Lopez. Note that Dieng, dismissed by Tudor, did not make the trip either.
OM want to confirm outside
The Olympian club is the best away team of the year with 22 points taken (7 wins, 1 draw, 3 losses).
The Olympian wardrobe
OM will evolve with their black away kit tonight. Kick off in less than 30 minutes.
The eleven of Brest
Bizot – Duverne, Chardonnet, Dari, Brassier – Belkebla, Lees Melou, Magnetti – Honorat, Le Douaron, Pereira Lage
Substitutes: Blazquez, Hérelle, Camblan, Uronen, Mbock, Karamoko, Belaïli, Cardona
The composition of OM
Payet is still on the bench, as for the first game. Star rookie Alexis Sanchez, too.

Substitutes: Simon, Kolasinac, Caleta-Car, Gueye, Veretout, Suarez, Payet, Sanchez, Things
Dieng, Caleta-Car… The point on all the players that OM want to sell
While OM have been active in the direction of arrivals, that of departures remains calm for the moment. The Marseille club is looking to sell a few elements, like Bamba Dieng or Duje Caleta-Car. And he will not retain Cédric Bakambu and Sead Kolasinac either.
