After the match in Metz, OM.net asked you to vote for the highlight from the game.

After two defeats in Ligue 1 against Monaco and Lyon, OM had rectified their standings with a great success against Montpellier (5-1) and a qualification against the OL (2-1 ap). Unfortunately, on Friday evening on the 23e day of the championship, the Marseilles lost in the final minutes of the game due to a free kick from Jouffre. This is the third defeat of the men of Rudi Garcia in four days of L1 since the beginning of the year 2017 and this is what has received 59% of the votes.
Yet the Olympians had attacked during the match correctly. They dominated the first period without any problem. The second period was more difficult but on the whole, OM mastered the game with better possession of the ball or a much better percentage of successful passes. But the Marseillais did not convert this dominance to the scoreboard ... 21% of the voters put forward the sterile domination of the OM as the highlight of the match.
The fall of Rod Fanni and his teammates in the second half is probably explained by the fatigue accumulated during the week. Tuesday evening, they battled 120 minutes against Lyon at the Orange Velodrome to get their ticket to the knockout round of the France cup. According to 15% of you, it played a part.

Warned during the match in Saint-Symphorien, Rod Fanni and Hiroki Sakai will be suspended for the game against Rennes, on February 18 during the 26e day of the Ligue 1, because they received three yellow cards in less than ten meetings. 4% of voters highlight these future absences. Finally, the premiere of Grégory Sertic with the OM receives 1% of the votes.
