Europa League: disappointing, OM loses but limits the damage against Benfica Lisbon in the quarter-final first leg

Adrift in the championship, the Marseille ship hoped to correct course in the quarter-final first leg of the Europa League, in Lisbon, Thursday April 11. However, on the lawn of Benfica Lisbon, Olympique de Marseille, submerged by the Lisbon waves, came close to sinking after the cannon shots of Rafa Silva (16th) and Angel Di Maria (52nd).

Logically trailing two to zero and with their heads underwater, the Marseillais nevertheless saved the furniture thanks to their strong man: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Weaned from balls, the top scorer in the history of the Europa League took advantage of an opposing error to reduce the score (67th) and reignite the flame on the Marseille side. A week before returning to a boiling Vélodrome, OM came close to disaster, but remains alive.
