The Fairy gives way
The Lorient midfielder gives way to striker Ibrahima Koné for the last minutes of the match.

Aouchiche’s strike is safe
Adil Aouchiche takes his chance from a distance but his strike does not worry Pau Lopez who seizes it without the slightest problem.

He could have scored on his first ball! Bamba Dieng is served by Guendouzi after a high recovery but the Senegalese falls on a good Vito Mannone.
A double change for OM

Double change for OM

Very good defensive return from Ünder
Cengiz Ünder made an excellent defensive return at the feet of Le Goff who had proposed an appeal.
Le Bris takes a shot
The Lorient coach tries a blow with the exit of Ponceau replaced by Innocent. The Fairy will certainly go up a notch.

What an opportunity for OM and Ruslan Malinovskyi. The Ukrainian takes a ball with his right foot which returns to his feet but he misses the target.
Mannone goes down on the ball
Matteo Guendouzi pierces the Lorient defensive curtain and crosses but Vito Mannone lays down well on the ball which was heading towards Sanchez at the far post.

On this somewhat soft ball, Pau Lopez comes out and tackles the feet of Abergel who was prowling.
Veretout gives OM a break!

The Fairy Festival
Enzo Le Fée infiltrates around the opposing area and strikes but it’s too crossed.
Lorient can hurt against
It has been a leitmotif since the start of this match. The Merlus are dangerous on the counter and the Olympians seem trapped on defensive transitions.

Balerdi realizes a fleeing center that no one can take back. The ball ends up out of goal.
Moffi pierces the cages!
What a powerful recovery from Terem Moffi who punishes the Marseillais on the first strike from Lorient. The Hakes take the advantage.
Waste in the Marseille game
After a technically clean start to the match, the Olympians lowered their foot and achieved fewer things, like this missed pass from Rongier.

On a quickly played touch, Terem Moffi enters the penalty area but fails to take the ball correctly.
84% ball possession
The domination of OM is reflected in particular by this figure. The Olympians have 84% possession of the ball as the end of the first quarter of an hour approaches.
What a sequence of Mbemba
Chancel Mbemba had thrown himself into the opposing area and inherited the ball. The Marseille defender continues like an attacker but his recovery is too removed.
The Hakes are cornered
Since the start of the meeting, Lorient has only existed defensively and is cornered on its own cages.
Mannone’s decisive save!
Kolasinac finds Ünder in the center. The Turk takes over in first intention with a header but Mannone makes an exceptional save.
Under lights the first wick
Cengiz Ünder is served back on a corner from Malinovskyi and makes a cross shot that ends up in Mannone’s gloves.
OM already have the ball

A quarter of an hour of patience before kick-off
The kick-off of this meeting between OM and Lorient should be given in 15 minutes now.
Lorient on a big series outside

Pau Lopez towards a new clean sheet?
Since his arrival in Ligue 1, Pau Lopez has made 16 games without conceding a single goal. Only Alexander Nübel does better with 17.
The Lorient composition with Moffi at the forefront
No particular surprise in the eleven composed by Régis Le Bris for this trip to the Vélodrome: Mannone – Kalulu, Matsima, Talbi, Le Goff – Abergel, Ponceau – Ouattara, Le Fée, Cathline – Moffi.
The composition of OM with Malinovskyi holder
Igor Tudor launched Malinovskyi into the deep end by establishing him for his first match at the Vélodrome. Here is the eleven Olympian: Lopez – Mbemba, Gigot, Balerdi – Under, Rongier, Veretout, Kolasinac – Malinovskyi, Guendouzi – Sanchez.
The Marseillais arrived at the stadium
Just under an hour from the start of the match, the Marseillais and the latest rookie Ruslan Malinovskyi arrived at the Stade Vélodrome.
The Lorient group
With Terem Moffi, who may be living one of his last matches in the Lorient jersey, since he is announced in Nice’s sights.
OM a little diminished
If Marseille can count against the Merlus on its latest recruit, Ruslan Malinovskyi, it will be deprived of Jonathan Clauss, however, as Igor Tudor announced at a press conference on Friday, while Dimitri Payet is uncertain.
Eric Bailly will serve him a second suspension match after his red card received against Hyères in the Coupe de France. The defender is however still not fixed on his final sanction.
