Player Ratings | Marseille 2-2 Bordeaux, Vladimir Petković’s men show some fight to rescue a point from the Velodrome

MARSEILLE – 2 (Ünder 34, Payet 41)

Steve Mandanda, 4It’s difficult to wholly blame him for either goal but he was caught a little flat footed for both strikes, especially Oudin’s, who was a long way from finding the corner with Bordeaux’s leveller.

Luan Peres, 4His play was again characterised by an air of rashness and uncertainty and did little to stop Pembélé as he fired home Bordeaux’s first in off the centre-back’s knee.

Leonardo Balerdi, 5Seems to be enjoying playing as the middle centre-back in a three, covered neatly and used the ball well when striding out from the back. Sent off late on for an over the ball challenge on Mara, however.

William Saliba, 5

Boubacar Kamara, 5

Pape Gueye, 5

Gerson, 5Notable improvement on last week and did well to cut back Konrad’s slightly overhit pass to set up Ünder for 1-0 but again looked a little off the pace overall.

Mattéo Guendouzi, 5

Konrad de la Fuente, 7 – Routinely unbalanced Bordeaux with his direct style and pace, again helped create a goal for Ünder for the second week running and always had the beating of Kwateng and Mexer in particular.

Cengiz Ünder, 6Ghosted in at the back post in similar fashion to last week to score OM’s second and fleetingly showed his ability to beat defenders in tight spaces but was outshone by Konrad.

Dimitri Payet, 6Produced and superb run and finish for 2-0 but was a little on the fringes otherwise.

Others: Álvaro González 5, Nemanja Radonjić 6, Darío Benedetto 5, Valentin Rongier 5.

 

BORDEAUX – 2 (Pembélé 51, Oudin 57)

Benoît Costil, 5

Gideon Mensah, 4

Mexer, 3Slow, half-hearted defending on both Marseille goals, especially Payet’s second, subbed at half time.

Laurent Koscielny, 6

Ricardo Mangas, 6An understated but solid debut with some positive, physical defending on the left of a three man back line.

Enock Kwateng, 4

Otávio, 5

Toma Bašić, 6Quiet before half time but was much improved in the second half with some more positive passing and his excellent flighted corner picked out Oudin for 2-2.

Issouf Sissokho, 4

Rémi Oudin, 6Came on for Kalu early on after his distressing collapse and swept home a controlled volleyed effort for 2-2. Made a potentially draw saving challenge on Benedetto late on too.

Hwang Ui-jo, 4Ran the channels hard but posed very little threat overall.

Others: Timothée Pembélé 6, Rubén Pardo 5, Sékou Mara 5, Yacine Adli 5, Samuel Kalu –
