The Marseillais snatch a point to nine but the record still stands for the Girondins

A draw that really does not suit anyone. This is what we can sum up the poor meeting between Bordeaux and Marseille (0-0) this Sunday, at Matmut Atlantique. The two teams remain at a distance from European places.

The record holds

In the end, that’s the only thing to remember from this ugly evening: the invincibility of the Girondins de Bordeaux at home against OM continues to hold. Forty-three years that this lasts. A historic series in Ligue 1. For the rest, we can not say that this match was the best possible publicity for L1. Bordelais and Marseillais showed during a very large part of the match why they vegetated in the soft underbelly of the championship after 25 days. Lack of intensity, low technical level… Difficult to hope for better with such shortcomings.

Unclear Girondins

You can try anything if you do not put precision, it is useless. The players of Jean-Louis Gasset made the perfect demonstration this Sunday. Ui-jo Hwang is the best example. The South Korean first missed a face-to-face meeting and then found the post at close range for Bordeaux. I am Arfa,Once again very average, watered the South Turn without ever finding the frame. Even at nine against 11, the Girondins have never managed to put Mandanda in difficulty.

OM tears off at 9

As if the Marseillais needed that, already decimated with the suspension of Payet and the injuries of Milik, Alvara or Caleta-Car, they lost two new players in Bordeaux: Balerdi and Benedetto, both expelled. The first for a foul as the last defender and the second, four minutes later, for a nasty tackle from behind. Despite this last half hour in double numerical inferiority, the Marseille house held on thanks to constant abnegation. OM could even have achieved the hold-up by playing better some blocks.
