In the first part of the season, Olympique de Marseille joins Brighton (0-0) during the 6th day of the European League phase. With this result, OM, leader of group B, is virtually qualified for the round of 16.
From the first minutes, the two teams took blow after blow with great intensity in the duels. At a time when the English were being pressed, the Marseillais nevertheless got the first opportunity of the match with a shot from Clauss dvied by Gro on the bar! Despite this warning, the Seagulls remained the most entrepreneurial in the game with vague names, particularly from Adingra.
Suffering, OM proved to be able to chain passes to project themselves into the opposing camp… Conversely, Brighton displayed great technical mastery to create gaps, but without managing to worry Lopez. With the exception of a too crude shot from Pedro before the break, the Phocens, even shaken, managed to resist until the break.
