The very flattering statistics of OM’s start to the season that leave you dreaming…

After another victory against Angers this Friday (3-0), OM confirm their excellent start to the season and provisionally take first place in the championship, before Paris Saint-Germain’s match against Nice this Saturday. Enough to hope for a very good 2022-23 exercise for the Marseillais.

Victorious again on the lawn of Angers this Friday by 3-0, the Marseillais have once again confirmed their excellent start to the season and place themselves provisionally leader of Ligue 1, before the meeting between Paris Saint-Germain and OGC Nice this Saturday. Sporting performances confirmed by the statistics, which give hope for a very fine medal at the end of the exercise.

A hopeful total of points

With 23 points in 9 league games, OM have made their best start to the season since… the 1990-91 season. As the Ligue 1 Twitter account points out, the last time OM made such a successful start, the Phocaeans finally won the championship.

If we compare last season under the orders of Jorge Sampaoli and after nine days, OM were 5th with 15 points, 15 goals scored and 15 goals conceded. So is it already too early to talk about a title fight with PSG?

« It’s still super early to talk about competing (with PSG) »

In the mixed zone, Valentin Rongier wanted to be much more cautious: “It is still super early to talk about competing (with PSG). But what is certain is that we only “focus” on us. For the moment, we are doing very well so we have to continue like this. » If OM shines offensively, with 19 goals scored against 26 for PSG, the Marseille defense is also doing wonders.

Ligue 1 notes for its part that with only 5 goals conceded in nine league matches, OM have their second lowest total behind their 1986-87 season, with 4 goals conceded at the time. Igor Tudor has become the first coach to lose any of his first 9 games on the bench with OM since Jean Fernandez in October 1992. And symbol that this OM works well, 13 of the 19 goals were scored by recruits who arrived this summer .
