The person responsible for a double in the French Cup in Toulouse, Rémy Cabella confirmed his return to form seen in the last match of 2016.

He has not even played 93 minutes in five hotly contested matches for Olympique de Marseille in December, but he already showed his worth by delivering a decisive pass for the first goal by Olympique de Marseille at Bastia (1-2) With 13 matches and only 821 minutes of playing time in all of the games combined in the first half of the season, the midfielder missed playing time, notably these last weeks due to a hamstring injury.
A replacement against Lille (2-0, 18th day of Ligue 1), he entered the game for the last five minutes of play. The Ajaccio native was then given tenure at Bastia for the last match of the stage where he delivered a decisive pass for Bafétimbi Gomis in the eighth minute of play. Fully returned, the break did not stop his momentum. The proof is in the first match of 2017, Sunday afternoon in Toulouse in the 32nd of the French Cup final where Rémy Cabella scored the two goals for the winning team from Marseille. An accomplishment which catapulted Olympique de Marseille in 16th for the final of the 100th edition of the French Cup, a competition that Olympique de Marseille has not won since 1989.

First team player at the Stadium, Rémy Cabella took on all of the attack positions with his partners Bouna Sarr and Florian Thauvin. He boasts good statistics in several areas.
Obviously good on offense since he made 6 shots, 4 center kicks, and 2 goals. It is his first ever double with Olympique de Marseille, his first since April 20, 2014 with Montpellier vs. Lorient (4-4) He completed 87% of his passes (41 out of 47 with 14 out of 19 in the last 30 meters). He centered 3 recoveries for 2 successes (67%). But he has been equally invaluable on defense with 11 recovered balls (only William Vainqueur made more with 20 recovered balls), 1 interception, and 4 successful tackles out of four attempts.
The statistic which shows that the Olympian undermined Toulouse's defense is the number of fouls he endured. Six fouls were committed against him, which was double the amount of the other players on the Stadium's pitch. While he did not commit any...
