OM concede a draw against Montpellier at the Vélodrome


After a week marked by the international break, OM welcomed Montpellier to a Derby in the south of France to kick off the 29th day of Ligue 1. The objective was simple for the men of Tudor: to reconnect with success at the Vélodrome, since hey have not won in Ligue 1 since January 14, against Lorient (3-1). But against a Hérault team in great shape and on three consecutive victories, the task was quickly complicated, because Nordin, launched by Wahi at the limit of offside, opened the scoring and froze the Vélodrome (1-0, 12th). The Olympians reacted well, but rubbed shoulders with the defensive block of the MHSC. Until a hand from Sakho in the area, entered in place of Kouyaté during the game, reported by the VAR. Guendouzi could then reset the counters to zero (1-1, 44th).

Everything had to be redone in the second half, while Olympique de Marseille insisted in the opposing camp. But also discovered himself since Khazri offered himself the best opportunity of the second period, but his header failed close to the left post (66th). The numerous Marseille offensives followed one another and Sylla saved the goal of the Marseille victory in extremis, after a cross from Kolasinac (88th). And the Orange and Blue could leave the Vélodrome with the point of a draw. An important point, since they chain a seventh game without defeat and climb to 11th place. On the other hand, OM still can’t do it at the Vélodrome, before a trip to Lorient. The Phocaeans (2nd) remain six points behind the Parisian leader and risk being caught up by Lens, if the northern club wins in Rennes tomorrow.
