The battle between Monaco and Marseille has flared up this time through its position in the standings: Monaco is trying to push Marseille out of the top three (which would qualify them for the Champions League).
No fewer than 4 starting players have been past Jupiler Pro League players, with Mbemba, Malinovsky and Gigot at Marseille and Diatta at Monaco. Add the Belgian Matazzo (at the base) and Clement (coach on the bench) and it was the Derby de la Mediterranee with a small Belgian side.
Marseille won 9 matches in a row (7 in the League, 2 in the Cup), but it was Monaco who struck the clock before the end of the first half. However, he needed some help from OM Veretout, who kicked a free kick into his own net.
For the rest, Ben Yedder in particular destroyed chance after chance, so that he was replaced by Embolo after the break. Marseille coach Theodore called up Argentine Ballerdi as a rebound and may have caused the change.
Alexis Sanchez soon made it 1-1. This was still undeserved at the time, but Marseille were able to justify that equalizer during the match. With 2 Lens also stopping to draw earlier, PSG could become the weekend winners on Sunday night if they beat Reims at home.
