Like Dimitri Payet, several former Marseille players did not pass up the opportunity to violently chamber PSG after their defeat in the Champions League final.
Marseille can breathe. TheOlympic Marseille remains the only French team to have won the Champions League. The PSG, who played his first C1 final this Sunday against Bayern Munich, stumbled on the last step, losing 1-0 to the German champions. A defeat obviously greeted with bitterness in the capital but which gave rise to scenes of joy in the Marseille city.
And it’s not just the Olympians fans who let their joy burst out at the final whistle. It was the same for certain Marseille players, like Dimitri Payet or Christopher Rocchia, and especially former OM. If the winners of the 1993 Champions League remained discreet, it was quite different for players recently moved to the club, and perhaps still marked by the domination of the Red and Blue in France for ten years.
Always quick to rejoice in the misfortunes of Parisians, André-Pierre Gignac thus remembered the good memories of the Marseillais by going there from his message with emojis, showing his happiness to see the PSG bow and the OM the only tricolor club to have won the C1.
A happiness shared by another former Marseille striker, Brandao. “Ouaiiiiii they“ not touchaowww ”Forever the first for OM, but above all forever the only ones!” Wrote the Brazilian.
And Djibril Cissé was not left out. The native of Arles, winner of the C1 with Liverpool in 2005, also shared his joy at seeing PSG fail against Bayern. Brandishing a replica of the Cup with big ears, the former Auxerrois thus shouted: “That’s not for you!” It’s not for you! ”
Or when the misfortune of some makes the happiness of others …
Neymar-Mbappé, the nightmare
Neuer and Bayern chamber PSG

PSG scores against Bayern
The grimace of Neymar, who did not live up to the event.
The Costa Rican goalkeeper, not 100% physically, made the match he could. He was saved by his right post (22nd) before making a decisive save on a recovery from the head of Lewandowski (31st). He also captured a powerful center from Kimmich (45th + 1). Powerless on the opening of the score (59th).
He put a lot of energy at the start of the match in his right lane, both defensively and offensively, even though he was again limited with the ball. Coman ramped up and the German defender then took to the water. He could have given a penalty to the French winger (45th + 1), is exceeded on the opening of the score of the head of Coman (58th) and on a 2nd center towards the same player (61st).
Thiago Silva (6)
Always so lucid, he increased the clearances in the first period and even saves his team just after the opener (63rd). He was passed like all the defense on goal (59th) and was warned for a foul on Lewandowski (83rd).
He too seemed extremely focused and chained more or less easy interventions (17th, 22nd 44th, 50th, 61st, 87th), including a decisive head deflection just after the goal (61st). It was not enough against this exceptional team from Bayern. He gave himself a nice hook on Müller (44th).
He worked a lot defensively and did what he could, abandoned by Mbappé in the first period. He let Lewandowski hit the post (22nd) but made a header (40th). Replaced in the 80th by a too messy Kurzawa.
Present for his harassment work, he was aggressive from the start. Even if he lost a dangerous ball (12th), he gave two superb goal balls (23rd and 45th). But, over time, he struggled to withstand the opposing pressure and had no influence in the recovery.
He was again invaluable in the recovery in front of the central hinge. His defensive science allowed him to perform “easy” interventions (12th, 30th, 42nd, 56th, 73rd) and he was solid in the air. On the restart, he played as easy as possible and ended up opting for long balls. He missed his face-to-face in front of Neuer (70th).
He had a very promising first quarter of an hour in a role of remote leader. After a superb opening for Mbappé (15th), he then disappeared from circulation in the face of the opponent’s battering. He failed to be a leader in the game. Verratti took over in the 65th minute without finding his attacking players.
Di Maria (6.5)
The best Parisian player in the game. And again, the game is not all the time spent by him on the right. If he hit above, but from the right (23rd), he then made a dangerous cross towards Mbappé (67th) and offered this superb hidden pass for Marquinhos (70th). To wonder why Tuchel released it before the last 10 minutes.
After his two XXL performances, he hardly made the difference. Strangely, he ran a lot at the pressing level, especially on Boateng, and perhaps lost some juice quickly since he rarely accelerated full axis. He did not convert his opportunity in front of Neuer (18th) and did not find the frame (74th). He dived in the second half with failed checks (76th, 78th, 79th).
Left striker, he posed problems early in the game in his lane. He notably offered a great opportunity for Neymar (18th), but did not score on two strikes (14th and 15th) and missed a huge opportunity (45th). Tuchel obviously asked him to defend more when he returned from the locker room and he seemed exhausted from halfway through the second half.
