Ligue 1 21/22, Round 31 – 10/4/22
MARSEILLE – 2 (Dieng 8, Ünder 19)
Steve Mandanda, 5
William Saliba, 6
Boubacar Kamara, 7 – Despite impressing in midfield for some time, he sees himself as a centre-back and his return in recent games has been a real success. Especially before half time here, he was again often imperious, save for one ludicrous pass across his area which should have resulted in a goal for Savanier.
Luan Peres, 5
Pape Gueye, 6
Valentin Rongier, 6
Mattéo Guendouzi, 7 – He orchestrated what turned out to be a simple win for OM with MHSC seemingly on the beach already. His positive, snappy passing drove OM forward and his powerful running consistently unsettled the visitors. No one worked as hard at either end.
Cengiz Ünder, 6
Bamba Dieng, 5 – He was on hand to tuck home the opener from close range but wasted two further huge chances before the break due to a heavy touch and badly mistimed shot.
Amine Harit, 7 – His explosion of form continues and he was a regular nuisance before the break for Montpellier as he drifted across the front line and dropped deep to find useful space. It was his jinking run and neat cross that assisted the opener.
Others: Payet 5, Henrique 5, Kolašinac 5, Lirola 5, Ben Seghir 5.
MONTPELLIER – 0
Jonas Omlin, 3
Arnaud Souquet, 4
Maxime Estève, 4
Mamadou Sakho, 2 – The Montpellier captain lacked focus and composure all game and was far too often picked off in dangerous areas while his passing was routinely wayward.
Nicolas Cozza, 4
Léo Leroy, 3
Jordan Ferri, 3
Téji Savanier, 5
Florent Mollet, 3
Elye Wahi, 3
Stephy Mavididi, 3
Others: Cabella 5, Germain 4, Makouana 5, Sambia 4, Bertaud 5.
