FC Nantes was weighed down by two big mistakes in Marseille


I like it when a plan goes off without a hitchlaunched Hannibal in each episode of the Agency all risks, this series of the 80s where a band of former soldiers of an elite commando embarked on missions all more perilous than the others.

The FC Nantes commando, unfortunately, experienced some failures in their endeavor to bring down Olympique de Marseille at the Vélodrome. The starting plan was however clear and had been announced before the meeting by the chef Antoine Kombouaré.We will have to be solid defensively and take advantage of the spaces they leave us.

“We make two big mistakes, by experienced players”

The second part of the plan was respected twice, with as many goals scored by the Canaries: the first on their first situation, a corner perfectly taken by Cyprien on the head of Girotto left alone at the penalty spot (0-1; 26th). The second, thanks to a goal from Marcus Coco who volleyed a ball cleared with a header by Saliba after a marvelous cross from the outside of the left foot of Nicolas Pallois (1-2; 42nd).

The first goal of the former Guingampais in the jersey of the Canaries, after 2,116 minutes of scarcity, and his first in Ligue 1 since December 5, 2018!

Yes but now, the plan has had too many faults on the defensive level.We make two big mistakes, regrets Antoine Kombouaré. In addition they are two experienced players, I told them. It was not a Marseille player who was going to hit the goal. It’s an action on the side, you just have to come in opposition. »

Unfortunately, on the first foul in the box, since that’s what it’s all about, Nicolas Pallois tries to clear the ball but misses, mowing down Kamara (38th) and causing Payet to equalize from the penalty spot (1- 1; 39e). And on the second, it is Fabio who throws himself and tackles in his area, in the same place as Pallois and for the same penalty, this time on Gerson (2-2; 55th).

And at the start of the last quarter of an hour, OM delivered the coup de grace to Nantes: Payet and Gerson had fun on the left side and the Brazilian entered the box to quietly serve Harit back (3-2 ; 75th). Or how to get knocked out by two former players trained at La Jonelière…

I didn’t celebrate my goal because I have too much respect for everyone who trained mesaid the Moroccan winger.

On the third goal we defend very badly, again, meanwhile enrages Antoine Kombouaré. Gerson starts in the back and everyone goes in the goal when it is necessary to go out on the ball carrier and ensure the marking.

Osman Bukari had a 3-3 chance in the 80th minute but it was too late, Nantes lost and went on to a third match without a win after draws in Brest and against Angers (1-1). Infuriating.

Nicolas Pallois’ injury, « it’s not a good sign »

Above all, despite the coaching put in place by the Nantes coach for the May 7 final against Nice (exit of Simon and Blas at half-time, Kolo Muani remained on the bench), he lost Marcus Coco for a severe red harvested in stoppage time and especially Nicolas Pallois, whose knee gives great signs of concern. I don’t want to say too much, we’ll see tomorrow what it gives cold, but it’s not a good sign all the same, regrets AK. The plan has really had too many hitches, it will have to be rectified on Sunday, during the derby against Bordeaux.
