Olympique de Marseille won 0-1 against Reims in the match of the 34th day of Ligue 1. Here is the note and the appreciation of Amine Harit, starter during this match in Reims.
L’Olympic Marseille they really had to win the match against Reims at the end of matchday 35 in Ligue 1. Marseille had to keep their lead of 6 points over Monaco and Rennes, and it wasn’t easy. Faced with an ultra defensive Stade de Reims, with a great low block but also moments of pressure, the team proposed by Jorge Sampaoli lacked rhythm and movement. Apart from a long-range shot by Milik at the start of the game, Marseille have had very few chances. The first half is above all a series of bad passes and questionable choices. The Argentine coach decided to include Payet and Gerson in the second half, which brought more technical precision and more movement, a sensation confirmed by the (late) entry into the game of the restless Dieng. Gerson was very close to opening scoring on a cross from the Senegalese international, but the Brazilian finally scored the only goal of the game from a pass from Payet. The former Flamengo joker disoriented the defense with a magnificent technical gesture and a shot from the right. A splendid goal and a very important victory.
Lined on the left but also as an attacking midfielder, Amine Harit lost the chance to shine while Gerson and Payet were on the bench …
Amine Harit rating: 3/10
Your FCM appreciation
Harit, a great missed opportunity!
Without Payet or Gerson, the Moroccan midfielder had a great opportunity to demonstrate his ability to lead the team’s play on his own. Faced with a low and compact wall, he, like many of his teammates, struggled to find rhythm and touch his teammates. Harit only played half, being fairly free in positioning but too clumsy in his choices. Too bad he didn’t show the best level of him when Payet and Gerson were decisive in the second act.
|The group||3/10||A failed first period in which he struggled to make the right choices and position himself, which made it difficult for his teammates, especially on the left.|
|Maxipod||3.5 / 10||Positioned on the left to let Payet breathe, on the bench, the Olympique de Marseille attacking midfielder has notably dezoned. But despite this great freedom of movement, the Moroccan regularly lacked technical precision. In the area of truth, the Schalke 04 loaner did not notice the slightest difference. Substituted at 45 ‘by Dimitri Payet (5.5).|
