Marseille’s team climbed to second place in League 1. OM took advantage of the wrong moves of Monaco and Lyon and with a slight victory over outsider Metz with a 3-0 draw as a guest at the silver medal in the championship.
In the match of the 15th round of the competition, Rudi Garcia’s players did not have any particular problems and came to the success with the goals of Florian Thoven, Luis Gustavo and Lucas Ocampos. The first two scored before the break and the third in the second. Thus Marseille already has 31 points – two more than Lyon and Monaco, who lost to Lille and Nantes respectively. Metz, on the other hand, remains at the bottom with just four points and is already thinking about his return to League 2.

Then the defender of the “eagle” Dante drew two yellow cards and was expelled in the 40th minute. He also reached a missed penalty kick by Jimmy Durmaz in the 50th. The 80th was awarded a penalty for Nice, turned into a goal by Mario Balotelli, and the guilty Amien Adou got a red card, leaving Toulouse with ten.
