OM de Gasset takes place in Clermont


By: Manu Tournoux

Traveling to the bottom of the standings, OM did not fail to achieve a second consecutive victory in Ligue 1 (5-1).

OM continues its recovery. This Saturday, and after dominating Montpellier last weekend, the Marseille team followed up with a second success in a row in the championship by beating Clermont away (5-1). This hadn’t happened to him since last December.

At the bottom of the ranking, Marseille waited before being able to play out because Gastien’s formation had been eye-catching for a long time. Even though they were quickly behind, they remained in the match until the hour mark before completely collapsing. And Bilal Boutobba’s equalizer in the 53rde came to reward the locals for their self-sacrifice.

Clermont, however, was not able to take advantage of this return to the brand for long. Because if there is one thing that this Gasset version of OM knows how to do well, it is to react after a goal conceded. Only six minutes after being trapped on a corner, the Phocaeans went back in front. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored his 9e goal of the season.

Aubameyang is full of confidence at the moment, just like Iliman Ndiaye, who opened the score at the start of the game (23e). He agrees with Gasset, who systematically aligns him from the start.

Gasset’s winning coaching

Ismaila Sarr, the other Senegalese on the team, also played from the start and he did not disappoint. The former Rennais did not score but he gave a nice assist to Jonathan Clauss for the 3-1 goal. The former Lensois found the fault of a strike in the top corner in the 67the. Clermont, however, was not at the end of his troubles at that time. The Marseille substitutes then put on the show. Luis Henrique added to the score with a goal following a block in the 80th. And then the best was left for last with a shot from outside the area from Faris Moumbagna (92nd).

By winning, OM made a very good move in the ranking. Lens and Rennes have certainly not yet played, but the Phocaeans can be happy to jump three places to find themselves 6e. They also remain five points from the places giving access to the Champions League.
