In the absence of the Champions League (following their elimination in the third qualifying round against Panathinaikos), OM are set to extend their European campaign into next winter. The Phocéens are currently top of their Europa League group, following their victory over AEK (0-2) in Athens on Thursday, for the The Kitrinomavri (Black and Yellow) team had several opportunities at the start of the second half, including Levi Garcia’s close-range header which was cleared by Pau Lopez (51st). The Spanish goalkeeper was called into action on another headed attempt just before stoppage time (89th), and it was finally Ismaïla Sarr who scored Marseille’s second goal (93rd) after Jordan Veretout’s breakaway. The first away win of the season!
