After Olympique won against Montpelier on Friday, opening the 22nd playing day of Ligue 1's 2016-17 season, OM.net asked you to vote for the most significant fact of the match.

With a clear victory at home against Montpelier, Olympique Marseille's players were rewarded with the luxury of watching the matches of the 22nd day of play from the sidelines. They watched Lyon lose at home against Lille, while Bordeaux won at Nancy. What this means is that fourth place is only four points away (though Lyon has a game in hand), while there are many in the chasing pack: Girondins de Bordeaux are only a point behind, while either of Guingamp and Staint-Etienne, who play each other on Sunday afternoon, will overtake OM with a win. In short, the three points against the team from the Hérault have restarted the race for a place in Europe for Rudi Garcia's men, and that's what over 31% of you are most interested in.

The win on Friday was built primarily on Bafétimbi Gomis's three goals. In the space of twenty minutes, Marseilles' best striker found the back of the net on two occasions. At the break, OM was 3-0 up, and the match was all but over. The fact that Montpelier was able to close the gap shows how important it is never to ease off the pace during a game in L1, or you'll suffer for it. Olympique managed to get their winning margin back, and Bafétimbi Gomis once again showed the way to complete his hat trick. For 23% of those who voted, that was the most striking aspect of the game.

Just a few virtual votes behind was the fact that OM returned to winning form after two defeats, on 22%. In Ligue 1, 2017 got off to a bad start for Marseilles' players. With successive defeats in Monaco and Lyon, despite ending 2016 with four wins on the trot, they needed to react. They did so, and decisively, against Montpelier.

The three goals scored in the first period by Bafétimbi Gomis and Rolando won around 12% of the votes, while 11% of voters saw Patrice Evra's debut in an Olympic shirt as the decisive factor.
