Pau Lopez, (little highlighted) but reassuring!


OM won 2-0 at Auxerre on Saturday during the 6th day of Ligue 1. Here is Pau Lopez’s rating and assessment of this match.

Olympique de Marseille delivered a great performance against Auxerre, especially the first half. With a reshuffled team, Sanchez, Tavares and Bailly were on the bench, Gigot and Payet withdrawn, OM did not flinch against the promoted. Gerson quickly opened the scoring (8′), following a superb overflow from Under, and a shot on the post. The Turkish international was to his advantage in this first act, sharp in passes and calls. Tavares came on in the second half and was immediately dangerous. The Portuguese left piston found the post with a shot from the left this time. It is ultimately the substitutes who will make the difference, a breakthrough from the ghost Harit who shifts Guendouzi, this last center back for Sanchez who kills the suspense of the match (83 ‘). OM were less dominating during the second period, but still generally mastered their subject to offer themselves another away victory.

Pau Lopez’s note : 6/10

His appreciation

Pau Lopez, (little highlighted) but reassuring!
He didn’t have much to do as his defense was solid against low-risk Furlan players. However, since his return the Spanish goalkeeper has shown confidence. Precious in his positioning, assured in his ball catches and quick in his raises, he remains an important element of the collective…

Media Notes

The Team 6/10

He was rather authoritarian in his ball taking, diligent in his footwork despite the pressure at the start of the match, and concentrated on the few interventions to be made on his line. No prowess, but a reassuring presence.

Maxifoot 6/10 The Marseille goalkeeper spent a fairly quiet late afternoon. Little in danger, the Spaniard lays down well on a shot from Hein in the second half, then he sees the ball pass near his post on a diving header from Joly.
FootMercato 5/10

Established for the fourth consecutive time since the start of the season, the Spaniard had a more than quiet meeting. Never worried, he thus took advantage of the overall collective domination of his people, contenting himself with capturing a timid strike from Mensah (35th) and an overly crushed attempt from Hein (61st). Clean in the revival, the former Betis and Roma can return to Marseille with the feeling of accomplishment.
