  • The Girondins de Bordeaux were beaten by OM 3-1 on Saturday night at the Stade Vélodrome for the 7th day of Ligue 1.
  • “Working in our own championship… against Nîmes”, Benoit Costil is aware of the class of gap between OM and his team.
  • For Jean-Louis Gasset, OM technically dominated the Girondins de Bordeaux.

At the Velodrome stadium,

A class of difference between the Girondins de Bordeaux and OM. The Bordelais did not exist on Saturday night at the Stade Vélodrome and were beaten 3-1 by Olympique de Marseille. The Girondins coach regretted the two poor starts of half-time for his team, punished each time by a goal from OM. A superb “classic” from Thauvin from the 5th, “he is still not obliged to put it there”, smiled, bitter, Jean-Louis Gasset during the post-match conference, and a head of Amavi at the 54th.

The Bordeaux goalkeeper, Benoit Costil, who saved a penalty from Florian Thauvin, went much stronger at the microphone of Canal +. “We will get back to work, raise our heads and work in our own championship … against Nîmes,” admitted the goalkeeper hot. An admission of weakness more or less shared by Jean-Louis Gasset: “All the matches are important, but indeed, apart from the six or seven teams at the top of the table, you have to score points against the others. “

“Too much technical waste”

A match which must, according to Jean-Louis Gasset, show Bordeaux the way to go to be able to compete against teams at the top of the table. “We see the work we have to face a team playing in the Champions League, we see the level to be reached and it is in these matches that we learn,” he said.

It is not the 4-4-2 system proposed by André Villas Boas that explains this defeat against OM, but the class of gap between his players and those of the Portuguese. For the former assistant to Laurent Blanc, “OM’s victory is deserved, it is technically that they were above us. They made us run technically, and we were overwhelmed by a few moments ”. “We have to be better with the ball, in use, to show more maturity. There was too much technical waste with the ball, it was not easy ”, also notes Benoit Costil.

The only real action in which the Bordelais showed technical quality, in addition to the reduction in Maja’s score, was the result of a nice call from Hatem Ben Arfa, who saw his goal refused for an out-of-pocket. game for his return to Ligue 1. But the new Bordeaux was not yet in the rhythm. “I had decided to make him play 1 hour to make him play as quickly as possible and that he can play longer next week to find some rhythm,” explained Gasset on the use of the new number 8 from Bordeaux. The Bordelais will have to be able to count on his technical qualities to hope to play better than the top of the second half of the classification.
