OM: the Italian press greets the Phocaeans
show more …
Hanging on by Lazio Rome (0-0) Thursday in the Europa League, Olympique de Marseille can harbor some regrets. Because, in Italy, the Phocéens showed an attractive face in the game and outclassed, by long periods, their opponent. A finding that has not escaped the transalpine press, laudatory towards the men of Jorge Sampaoli this Friday.
Indeed, the daily La Gazzetta dello Sport qualifies OM as a « beautiful and innovative » team, with « a fluid and exciting game pattern ». For his part, Il Messaggero speaks of « a futuristic project with hybrid positions and interchangeable roles », when describing the performance of the Olympians. Nice qualifiers for the domineering Ciel et Blancs at the Stadio Olimpico, but who only have 3 points in three C3 games.
