the RMC Sport film of OM’s disappointment against Tottenham in the Champions League
From dream to nightmare. The RMC Sport film « Extreme » returns in length and with unpublished images on the elimination of OM in the Champions League after their defeat (2-1) against Tottenham on Tuesday evening.
Eleven years since Olympique de Marseille did not experience the Champions League in the middle of winter. In the meantime, two qualifications have been obtained. But with the same scenario at the end: an early, even humiliating humiliation. So against Tottenham on November 1, OM had the opportunity to change fate. The Velodrome was boiling, the city ready. But Clément Lenglet and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg ruined the party. Europe flew away at the last second. Defeat 2-1.
RMC Sport retraces this disillusionment with Extreme, a 25-minute film with previously unseen footage. It notably opens with Igor Tudor helpless in added time after yelling at Amine Harit.

The images also show how the OM bench learned of the result of Eintracht Frankfurt against Sporting CP at the same time. The 2-1 victory of the German club allowed the Marseillais to play in the Europa League by preserving the score at 1-1. But with the cameras available, at no time did Igor Tudor appear to indicate the score in question to the players on the pitch. So the Phocaeans gave their all to score one more goal. With the outcome that we know.
