Payet recovered well, Milik still disappointing

The inspirations of Payet, the first goal of Lirola, but also the mess of Milik: find the Tops and the Flops of this match between Marseille and Troyes (1-0).


Payet has let his creativity speak again
We had left him on very sad images with this bottle taken behind his head at Groupama Stadium. And we found him full of desire to recover from this unfortunate fact in a Velodrome, admittedly empty. At first discreet in the game, even if one of his free kicks escaped the frame narrowly (5e), Dimitri Payet ramped up in the second half to wake up his team. Author of several caviar for Milik, the Reunionese finally sent a decisive opening for Lirola, who unblocked this meeting (74e). One of his many inspirations which further justified his role as a leading man in this OM 2021/22.

Lirola, the reward for his activity
Tireless on his right wing, Pol Lirola was one of the most consistent players last season. Less prominent since August, there is nonetheless an interesting element in this OM on the right side. And knows how to take responsibility. As on this call in the back of the defense which allowed him to score on his own his 1is goal of the season in Ligue 1.

Gallon delayed the deadline
The Trojan doorman thought he could baffle OM on his own. Author of three decisive saves, especially against Milik, he showed personality in his cage to allow his team to stay in the match. But he could not do anything on Lirola’s goal, abandoned by his defense.


Milik, still looking for confidence in Ligue 1
If he shines in the Europa League (3 goals this season), Arkadiusz Milik does not know the same success in Ligue 1. Since his return in early October, the Pole has scored only one goal in 7 matches. And against Troyes, he still lacked edge against the opposing goal. Beyond his limited contribution to the game, he spoiled a lot of situations. However, he had opportunities to express himself thanks to the kicks of Payet, who offered him three good balls. But, each time, he stumbled on Gallon or did not frame. A bad pass for the former Napoli player.

Troyes eventually ran out
L’Estac has enough to feed regrets. Because his first period was promising. Present in the aggressiveness, the men of Batlles provided a lot of efforts to fill the spaces thanks to a big density in the axis with the 5-4-1 set up. Except that after the break everything changed. More blunt, the Trojans were less apt to repeat efforts and left more space. Lirola and OM took advantage of it.

A bad air of deja vu
A closed-door stadium, a very dull spectacle, players who multiply the approximations: no, the spectacle was not there at the Vélodrome. This game had a false impression of what happened throughout last season. With little rhythm on the pitch and a heavy atmosphere where you could hear the sidelines a lot more than anything else. In this context, the players have never been able to transcend themselves and have offered one of the saddest matches of this Ligue 1 season.
