om | Lens-OM: Lopez 3, Kolasinac 6… The ratings and appreciations of the Olympians

A spectacular match with a result unfavorable to the Olympians. This Saturday, OM lost on the lawn of Lens (2-1) in this clash of the 34th day. A defeat that allows the northern club to pass the Marseille club in the standings, while there are only four days left.

Here are the player ratings.

Lopez: 3

The Olympian goalkeeper suffered from the comparison with Samba. Saved by his left upright on a missile from Fofana (22), he was then pierced by a new mine from Captain Lensois (42) and beaten by a header from Openda (60).

Mbemba: 5

The Congolese found the starting lineup outside. Reactive, he did not hesitate to move up on the right flank to bring the surplus, but he is not exempt from any reproach on the goal of Openda (60). Replaced by Mattéo Guendouzi (76).

Leg: not rated

Positioned in the axis of the defense at three, the Avignonnais was impressive to muzzle Openda (12, 16, 26). But he was very quickly hit in the right ankle and he had to give way to Leonardo Balerdi before the half-hour mark (29). Damage.

Kolasinac: 6

Always very solid in the left axis of the defense, the Bosnian did not spare his efforts, like his tackle full of ardor at the start of the match. A service above that of its partners in mastering the context.

Clauss: 4

For his return to Lens, the Alsatian has found the right side that suits him so well. Present defensively to close his lane, he sinned offensively, in particular by shooting into the small net of Samba (38). Released in favor of Issa Kaboré (76).

Rodent: 5

Author of a header easily captured by Samba (13), the Marseille captain was scared by losing the ball in front of Onana, before being warned for a foul on the Lensois (45 + 3). A decisive interception in front of Fofana (65).

Veretout: 4

Always well placed to set up the offensive organization, the former Canary was far too imprecise in his transmissions. He could have scored before the break if his powerful shot from the right had not been repelled by Samba (45+2).

Tavares: 3

Established for the first time since the draw in Lorient, the Portuguese was transparent on his left flank. Jostled by Frankowski on the goal of 2-0 (60), he never brought to the Marseille collective. A losing choice for Tudor.

Less: 3

Very much behind compared to his previous outings, the Turk did not weigh on the Lensoise defense, apart from a good deep service for Clauss (38) and a clever shift for Vitinha (68). Too little on such a crucial match.

Malinovsky: 2

In the mining republic of Lens, the Ukrainian has drawn. He made a series of bad choices and was too slow to come out ahead of Fofana on the opener (42). Replaced by Dimitri Payet (76), who managed to close the gap (88).

Sanchez: 6

The Chilean achieved the action of the match by pressing Danso, then eliminating Samba before scoring (8). But the referee disallowed the goal after resorting to Var. Released at the break in favor of Vitinha, after a blow received behind the thigh.

And also…

Balerdi: 6

Called to the rescue to replace Gigot, the Argentinian has accumulated faults. He also managed a few interventions, like in front of Fofana (85).

Vitinha: 3

Launched at the break in place of Sanchez, the Portuguese never stood out. His only shot flew well beyond the frame (68).
