PLAYER RATINGS | Clermont 0-1 Marseille, a professional OM display without Payet and Milik proves sufficient


Arthur Desmas, 7 – Not too much he could do about the goal but made two important saves one-on-one, one from Dieng and another from Ünder.

Akim Zedadka, 5

Cédric Hountondji, 5

Florent Ogier, 5

Vital N’Simba, 4

Jonathan Iglesias, 3 – A little out of his depth against Guendouzi and Kamara and lost the ball near the halfway line which led to the only goal.

Salis Abdul Samed, 6 – Busy and persistent in his midfield work and was a constant nuisance for his OM counterparts, pressing well and using the ball neatly.

Saîf-Eddine Khaoui, 4

Elbasan Rashani, 3 – Isolated with most of Clermont’s playing going through Allevinah on the other side and was unable to meaningfully affect the game before being withdrawn just after the hour.

Jim Allevinah, 7 – He should score early in the second half with Lopez at his mercy but carried the Clermont attack throughout as the promoted side’s only real goal threat or creative outlet.

Pierre-Yves Hamel, 3 – Anonymous, top scorer Mohamed Bayo was sorely missed.

Others: Bayo 5, Busquets 5, Dossou 5, Tell 5, Berthomier 5.

MARSEILLE – 1 (Ünder 25)

Pau López, 6 – A quiet evening overall but made one key close range save from Allevinah in the second half to preserve OM’s lead.

Pol Lirola, 4

William Saliba, 7 – Largely untroubled by Clermont’s attack and was unflappable throughout in playing him and his team out of danger while contributing some precise passing.

Leonardo Balerdi, 6

Luan Peres, 4 – He has settled down of late but there was signs of the nervy, erratic Peres from the start of the season here and he was far from assured on the ball.

Boubacar Kamara, 6 – Patrolled midfield with a commanding and serene presence throughout and, although his passing was a little up and down, he did progress the play nicely at times. One second half through ball for Konrad stood out.

Mattéo Guendouzi, 6 – He’s really starting to take a leadership role in this OM group and barked orders at teammates throughout here while providing a typically all-action midfield presence and assisted Ünder for the only goal. However, he was lucky to get away with one awful pass across his penalty area in the second half .

Gerson, 4

Cengiz Ünder, 7 – His pace and skill were a threat throughout and it was his superb shaped finish in the first half that won the game for Marseille.

Konrad de la Fuente, 3 – His confidence seems to be waning and, although he was prominent at times, he was unable to affect the game before scuffing an shot early second half shot when put through by Kamara. Subbed before the hour.

Bamba Dieng, 5 – Squandered his only major chance of the game when put through one-on-one with Desmas early on, should score, but his pressing won the ball back for the winning goal.

Others: Payet 7, Milik 6, Gueye 5, Henrique 5.
