Morgan Sanson, Dimitri Payet … Both sides of OM scored, but not enough to win against a heroic Amiens team at the end of the game. The Olympians concede a draw at the Vélodrome (2-2).

With the defensive ups and downs that this entails, the origin of this Dimitri Payet festival in the area (49th), and the advantages. Among other opportunities, Sehrou Guirassy was denied a goal for offside (54th). The Picards let a chance pass there, and Dimitri Payet, returned with much better intentions, then gave air to his own. After a rush towards the axis, the international number 10 saw his strike deflected by Aurélien Chedjou in his own goal (57th). 2-0 an hour, ideal before an end of the match which promised to be quiet … It was without counting a goal from Sehrou Guirassy on penalty (83rd) after a foul by Jordan Amavi, still close to the ‘exclusion, guilty inaccuracies, some faults, a head on the crossbar of the same Guirassy (86th) and … a crazy end of the match. Saman Ghoddos, after a well constructed counter, finally equalized following a change of wing and then a center (95th). Magnificent, and 100% like the Picard team. As for OM, two points flew away in the Champions League race, and André Villas-Boas lost the papers. The exit of Dimitri Payet was expensive, despite the return of a motivated Florian Thauvin, and the coaching asks a few questions. “I missed the changes, we lost control of the match“, Yielded the Portuguese coach in the post-match. – A.B.
