AVB: “We want to keep winning, especially against a strong team. It’s important for us to beat them, to build our confidence, taking our rivalry into account.” “People have been talking about the Tifo a lot. We don’t yet know what it’s going to look like. We’re looking forward to seeing how they illustrate OM’s 120th anniversary. I’m excited! It’s going to be amazing. I want to say thank you to all the fans who’ve been working hard on it for weeks. We need to reward them with a win tonight.” Hi everyone,
welcome to the Orange Velodrome for the last game
of match day 13 in Ligue 1 Conforama. And what a game we have: Olympique de Marseille
vs. Olympique Lyonnais, the clash of the “Olympiques”. Dimitri Payet is under scrutiny tonight. Right. If he doesn’t deliver, people will be pointing fingers at him. There will be no mercy: to silence the critics, he needs to perform on the pitch tonight. Dimitri Payet’s role is to be a leader
in this group. He’s OM’s playmaker. If Payet is good tonight,
then OM will be good too. What a great tribute
from the fans to celebrate the 120th anniversary
of Olympique de Marseille. They talked about extraordinary. We’re not disappointed!
All four stands were all dressed up for the occasion. Corner… Dimitri Payet’s cross… Header! So close! Steve Mandanda’s save! Handball! Penalty! No doubt! The referee has confirmed it. Thiago Mendes’ handball inside the box. Everyone saw it. Payet is going to take it. Payet! Yes! Goal!! 1-0 for
Olympique Marseille. Perfect penalty kick. Top class. Superb. Cold blooded Dimitri. No hesitation. OL’s keeper Anthony Lopes was well positioned. Well played, Dimitri. Right down the middle. Dimitri! Lopes catches it. Traoré going for goal… What a great defensive move by Kamara! Yes! Payet’s tackle Caleta-Ćar right after him. Two great, clean tackles. Maxime Lopez sprints… pass to Payet in the middle… What a strike! It’s a goal!!! Yeah!! 2 goals for Dimitri Payet! How could he do that!? Sensational! So good! How beautiful is that! Payet gets the ball and finishes it. OL’s defense unable to do anything in front of this in-form Payet! Shot by OL! Steve Mandada takes it. He read that ball well, what a ‘keeper. It was going right under the crossbar. Lopez’s cross…
back-pass… The ball goes the other side for Payet. Payet! Very close… So close to seeing the perfect goal! Watch out! Corner! OL’s goal. Wasn’t he offside? No, It’s a goal, scored by Moussa Dembélé. 2-1 now. OM must be strong to keep the lead now. Come on, referee! And OM wins! That’s it! We did it. Marseille wins 2-1 vs. Lyon and gets all 3 points. We finally defeat Lyon. Finally! OM are now 2nd in Ligue 1! It was tough… We deserved to win tonight. Just like against Lille. The team looked extremely motivated tonight. “We won against a big club at the Orange Vélodrome. It matters a lot to beat Lyon. The fans were amazing. The tifo and the atmosphere were sensational.” “I’m so happy, thank you to the team, you made us so proud tonight, very well done.”
