Thanks to this second victory in a row, after that against OL at the Vélodrome, the Marseille club moved up to 4th place in Ligue 1, 1 unit behind 3rd, Stade Rennes. AS Monaco is out of European places (6th).
The Tops of Monaco-OM
Payet, the decisive entry
Often left aside since the start of the season, Dimitri Payet, who came into play in the 62nd in place of the unfortunate Amine Harit, seriously injured, was decisive for his family. Author of a goal and an assist since the start of the season, before this meeting, the Frenchman allowed OM to equalize, recovering a ball in the Monegasque area and giving it to Jordan Veretout, who with a shot from the left deceived Alexander Nübel, before causing a free kick, in the 90th + 7, then shooting it himself, on the head of Sead Kolasinac, who came into play. While Amine Harit could be away from the field for several months, Dimitri Payet could replace him in Igor Tudor’s eleven, when he returns from L1 at the end of December.

Alexis Sanchez-Wissam Ben Yedder, a story of set pieces
It was the Chilean Alexis Sanchez who opened hostilities: in the 35th minute, after a foul he himself caused, the former Inter striker rolled up a free-kick love in the skylight of the ‘German Alexander Nübel. French international Wissam Ben Yedder, who was not called up by Didier Deschamps for the World Cup in Qatar, answered him in the 45th, after a penalty caused by Leonardo Balerdi. The former Sevillian deceived Pau Lopez with a subtle panenka, shot right in the center of the goal. Two subtle jewels, to liven up a rather lackluster match in terms of goalscoring opportunities in the first half.
OM like at home
Admittedly, the recurring lack of atmosphere at AS Monaco has partly helped OM supporters to win, but the Stade Louis-II was totally committed to the cause of the Marseillais this evening. Audible from the start to the end of the match, the OM supporters even whistled the Monegasque offensives when their club was leading 1-0 (35th). Before the final explosion, when the Olympian club, on a decisive free kick from Dimitri Payet, for the header of Sead Kolasinac, won the match at the end of the suspense (90th + 7). Thinking of the Vélodrome, the Marseille players then celebrated their victory for a long time in front of the stands of their fans, after the final whistle.
Harit, the shock
It was in the 58th minute of play that Amine Harit surely said goodbye to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The Moroccan, selected with his national team for the world meeting in Qatar, collapsed on the ground after a very violent contact with the French colossus Axel Disasi. The realisation of Prime Video decided not to show the images of the clash between the two players, but the distraught faces of the players of the two teams, on the lawn, leave little room for doubt: Amine Harit seriously injured his left leg, as Igor Tudor confirmed it after the meeting, speaking of a “serious injury”. In legs this season (15 games, 1 goal, 3 assists), the attacking midfielder could miss several weeks, if not months, of competition.
It looks particularly serious for Harit, who goes out on a stretcher as Marseille supporters chant his name in the stands of Louis-II. Payet comes into play in place of the Moroccan international. https://t.co/jZ1FcOukTN pic.twitter.com/FVYHOgzkDF

Balerdi in all the wrong moves
Admittedly unlucky (csc against Ajaccio, shot blocked returning against Lens), the Argentinian central defender Leonardo Balerdi had nevertheless returned well, in recent weeks, after a contrasting start to the season in terms of performance. But tonight, against ASM, the former Borussia Dortmund player missed his match, despite the Marseille victory. At the end of the first half, overtaken by the speed of winger Krepin Diatta, Leonardo Balerdi conceded a penalty, which Wissam Ben Yedder transformed with class. In the second half, in the 75th, on a bright pass from the Russian Alexandr Golovin, Leonardo Balerdi was once again overtaken, behind his back, by the German Kevin Volland, who left to deceive the Spaniard Pau Lopez. Double missed, therefore, for the Argentinian, but at the end of the meeting, it was Samuel Gigot who left to make way for Sead Kolasinac, victorious scorer.
Leonardo Balerdi is directly involved in 3 of the last 6 goals conceded by OM in L1:
– 1 csc against Ajaccio
– 1 shot blocked against Lens
– 1 penalty against Monaco #ASMOM

The podium slips away for AS Monaco
With this defeat in stoppage time, the team of Belgian Philippe Clement, who was in very good shape in recent L1 outings (7 wins in the last 9 games), remains at the foot of the European places, in 6th place. . Led by OM from the 35th minute, the Monegasques, rather dominated by OM in a closed first half (1st shot on target in the 30th minute), had managed to get back into the game, thanks to Wissam Ben Yedder (45th) . Then, more dominating in the 2nd half, ASM took the lead thanks to the German Kevin Volland (72nd). The Principality club thought they had done the hardest part, but Olympique de Marseille turned things around at the end of the game (83rd, 90th+7). To the chagrin of Monaco, who are now 4 points behind 3rd place, occupied by Rennes, and Axel Disasi, who accused the match referee of being “for Marseilles” since the 75th, at the microphone of Prime Video.
