OM chained Saturday evening against RC Lens a third consecutive defeat in Ligue 1. A bad series which expelled the Phocaeans from the podium.
In Marseille, the time is somewhat for concern. The third defeat in a row in Ligue 1 against RC Lens pointed to constant shortcomings among the Phocaeans. And nothing very reassuring when the men of Igor Tudor will continue to chain the meetings before the break linked to the World Cup in Qatar. From Wednesday evening, OM will have to remobilize to try to achieve a result against Frankfurt in the Champions League. A very important match concerning the qualification for the round of 16 and which could still leave traces. What to be pessimistic for Olympique de Marseille? Elton Mokolo gave his opinion on the subject.
OM, a not so serious diagnosis?

On Eurosportthe consultant indeed indicated that the Marseille way of playing gave hope despite the bad dynamic. “We know that at OM, as soon as we win three affiliate matches, we tell ourselves that we are going to play for the title and when we lose three matches, we will tell ourselves that it is the end. of the world . We still have to take a closer look at the nature of the matches. For me, the only real hitch is Ajaccio. You lead one to zero and you end up losing when it’s a candidate for maintenance. Then, PSG is a classic defeat. There against Lens, everyone is unanimous in saying that Marseille had a very good match. (…) I hear that for critics of OM, the results are not good. But with regard to the quality of the game, I still want to be optimistic,” indicated in particular Elton Mokolo, before deploring the fact that OM had no professional striker in its workforce. “There are no scorers. There is only one player who has scored ten league goals, it’s Alexis Sanchez. We have to find this striker, this great striker to go to the Champions League. (…) I am curious to see what Tudor will do ». Bamba Dieng, training number 9, could indeed have playing time in the coming weeks, but only in the league, not being on the Champions League list.
