Harit decisive, Sanchez aggressive and Clauss lost… The ratings of OM players against Sporting

OM succeeded. 3963 days after their last away victory in the Champions League, the Phocaeans won against Sporting (0-2), Wednesday October 12, at the Estadio José Alvalade. Thanks to this success acquired eleven against nine, with goals from Mattéo Guendouzi (20th) and Alexis Sanchez (31st), the Olympian club are back in second place in Pool D, just ahead of their evening opponent.

Pau Lopez: 5.5/10

The scenario of the match did not allow him to show the extent of what he was capable of, but the Spaniard showed great serenity. Very rarely called upon, he made himself available on the recovery phases and released the only attempt on target from Lisbon (36th).

Chancel Mbemba: 6/10

The boss of the OM defense ensured with his short passing game and remained on the lookout to avoid the rare Lisbon breakthroughs, like taking the ball in front Nuno Santos who started on goal (45th + 3).

Eric Bailly: 5/10

Reassuring behind, the Ivorian did not have much to do and was content to turn the ball around without taking any risks, as evidenced by his 98% successful passes in one hour. Replaced by Samuel Gigot (63rd).

Leonardo Balerdi: 6/10

The Argentinian was reassuring with no less than 13 balls recovered. He even caused the fault at the origin of the red card of Pedro Gonçalves (61st).

Jonathan Clauss: 4/10

Back in the eleven after his injury in the first leg, Jonathan Clauss seemed borrowed in his right lane. The French international has often been too far from the game. Replaced by Issa Kaboré (63rd).

Valentin Rongier: 5.5/10

The Marseille captain showed himself to his advantage in the middle of the field and watched over the grain to avoid several Portuguese strikes.

Jordan Veretout: 6/10

The former Roma put in a solid performance. First player in the image of a direct corner attempted (7th), Veretout applied himself to building the game of the Phocaeans. Replaced by Pape Gueye (87th).

Nuno Tavares: 6/10

On the lawn of the Lisbon rival, the former Benfica was whistled, but that did not prevent him from making a good copy defensively. Author of a return as clean as welcome in front of Gonçalves (41st), Tavares also took advantage of the Marseille domination to multiply the offensive overflows.

Matteo Guendouzi: 7/10

Holder on the left wing of the Olympian attack, Guendouzi gained momentum in Lisbon after a nervous start to the match. He knew how to show composure to place perfectly his penalty out of reach of the opposing goalkeeper (20th). Replaced by Ünder (63rd).

Alexis Shasn at: 7.5/10

A real poison. Probably aware of the lack of experience of goalkeeper Franco Israel, holder for the first time among the pros, the Chilean maintained constant pressure on the Sporting cage. His goal half an hour into the game rewarded his good start to the game where he tried a lot, like a heavy strike from outside the area (25th).

Amine Harit: 8/10

The Moroccan was decisive by causing the penalty to open the scoring for OM, and by excluding Ricardo Esgaio, guilty on the action (19th). Not hesitating to dezone, he then escaped to the limit of offside to serve on a plate the second goal to Sánchez (30th). He himself did not go far from reaching his goal. Replaced by Dimitri Payet (72nd)dangerous on his first ball.
