Two months later, the match between Lyon and Marseille could be played. After the bottle that hit Payet in the head on November 21, the meeting was suspended and resumed yesterday behind closed doors. It was a shame for the Lyon fans that they missed out on a crazy comeback of their own (2-1).

A Dimitri who was the protagonist of the first goal of the match in favor of the Marseillais. Things of destiny. The French attacker was in charge of serving a candy in the form of a corner kick that Guendouzi finished off, completely alone, at the near post. Serious defensive error of a Lyon that tried to react but was deflating with the passing of the minutes. Sampaoli was giving Bosz’s team a tactical bath, depleted by absences.
If you also add the Saliba exhibition, it’s another matter. The central defender on loan from Arsenal is growing by leaps and bounds and at 20 years old he is one of the Gunner’s greatest pearls. Arteta must be rubbing his hands against next year. He thwarted any Lyon attempts until Shaqiri appeared with 15 minutes remaining.
In one of the few positioning errors of the Marseille defense, the Swiss player went in with everything, alone, to finish off Malo Gusto’s center with a header. He totally dislodged Sampaoli’s men for the equalizer and they paid dearly for it. Lyon took control and became a gale, and not precisely because of the storm that fell on the pitch.
Touching the discount, Dembélé unleashed the madness with a goal delight. He does not know if the oriented control or the definition of Vaseline over Lopes is better. In minute 89, breaking Marseille’s streak of nine games in a row without losing. Lyon still dreams of Europe.
