Marseille cupbearer embarrassment against an amateur rival

Olympique de Marseille, who will be coached by Argentine coach Jorge Sampaoli from next week, was blushed by Canet Roussillon, an amateur team in the fourth category that won 2-1 and prolonged their adventure in the French Cup.

Sampaoli has a job ahead of him at Olympique, being out of the top places in Ligue 1 and now being eliminated from the cup tournament and by a much inferior opponent.

Four games without winning

He has not won the Olympique in four games. Three in Ligue 1, where he is eighth, and this one in the Cup, which was the last one on the Marseille bench for interim Nasser Larguet.

OM was bogged down from the start, conceding the first goal in the 21st minute through Jeremy Posteraro. He equalized shortly before the break thanks to the Polish Arkadiusz Milik but Yohan Bai accentuated Olympique’s crisis in 70 ‘and gave Canet Roussillon, a team that plays in the amateur category, for the second round.

Larguet’s relays do not prevent disaster

Larguet’s changes, who turned to Tunisian Saif Eddine Khaoui and Japanese Hiroki Sakai in the second half and later to Brazilian Henrique and Argentine Darío Bennedetto, did not work and Marseille was surprisingly eliminated in the round of 32.
