Alvaro, stop or else?
Olympique de Marseille lost 1-2 against Brest on the occasion of the 17th day of Ligue 1. Here is the rating and appreciation of Alvaro, holder during this meeting.
Olympique de Marseille wanted to go on after two straight wins and against a fit opponent. The Marseillais clearly made a success of their start, offering a mastery of the game, a big pressing and a moving game oriented forward. Gerson opened the scoring in the 29 ′ minute, confirming the ultra domination of Jorge Sampaoli’s men. After this goal scored, OM were less incisive and more wait-and-see, especially in the second half. On an innocuous strike and little supported, Kamara touched the ball with his hand offering an unexpected penalty for Brest who had shown nothing until then. This surprise equalizer revived the Bretons who even managed to score a second goal on a feat of Honorat. Tired, the Marseillais did not know how to react and still lacked efficiency in front of goal. The entries of Under, Lirola and Milik did not change the meeting. Again aligned in the three-way defense and for the third time in a row, Alvaro was in difficulty faced with the speed of the Brest attackers, especially in the second half …

His FCM appreciation
Alvaro, stop or else?
A surprise holder against Troyes, the Spanish defender has moved into this three-way defense in place of Duje Caleta-Car and Leonardo Balerdi. For this third game in a row, Alvaro was rather quiet in the first half when his team had the ball. It was more complicated then, when OM were exposed. Often caught up in speed, he is too wait-and-see on Honorat’s goal. Can his lack of speed and minimalist play be counterbalanced by his envy? The question of a new change in this position will arise …
|The team||4/10||A good center cut on a Brest against (56th) but otherwise he saw the Breton waves pass in the second half. Late from the start to the end of the action on the visitors’ second goal (71st).|
|Maxifoot||4/10||Precious at times, like his release from a dangerous 1-1 center, the central defender however had more trouble at the end when the Brestois accelerated and his slowness was detrimental to him.|
|FootMercato||4/10||Holder for the second time in a row after the victory in Nantes on Wednesday, the Spanish defender has fulfilled his role perfectly. Not really worried in the first half, he was content to manage the in-depth calls from the opposing attackers. More in difficulty in the second half, he was behind the second Brest goal, just like Peres (71st).|
