LIVE – OM-Norwich: the Marseillais behind and still in the running

Half-time in Fos-sur-Mer!

OM are led 1-0 by Norwich at the break! The English take the lead thanks to a very nice goal from Jacob Lungi Sorensen at the very start of the match. Despite a few situations, the Olympians are disappointing against a club relegated to the Championship and who are in their fourth preparation match.

Guendouzi claims the penalty

The Marseille midfielder signals to the referee that an opposing defender has touched the ball with his arm in front of his goal. But no penalty for OM, despite the anger of Guendouzi and his supporters.

First card for Norwich

After a gesture of anti-game on the part of one of his players, the referee released the first card of the match against the English club, to the applause of the Parsemain stadium.

Another free kick for Norwich

At the far post, Guendouzi extended a fleeing center for a corner.

Krul disgusts Bakambu

Amavi makes another interesting cross from the left, towards Bakambu who had dived at the far post. But the opposing goalkeeper lays down well to cut off this strong pass.

Gerson makes the wrong choice

Amavi delivers a good cross back for Gerson, who lets the ball pass between the legs in front of the box. No one can take back behind him.

Norwich well in their game

The English are still in the lead and have good control of an OM who are still looking for themselves.

Opportunity for OM!

Guendouzi overflows on the left of the surface and solicits Krul. In the process, Touré, in the center forward position, also finds the gloves of the Dutch goalkeeper.

Cantwell treats

If goalscoring opportunities are rare, the Norwich midfielder feasts the eyes by achieving a superb roulette between two opponents.

The game resumed

The Marseillais are moving forward and still dominating this meeting, without being particularly dangerous in the last 30 meters.

It’s time for a cool break

It is already half of this period: the referee orders a cool break to allow the actors to quench their thirst, while it is very hot this afternoon at the Parsemain stadium.

Lopez no problem

Norwich is struggling to be dangerous again. A free kick from the left ends up directly in the arms of the Spanish goalkeeper.

Gerson can’t find Bakambu

Very nice acceleration from the Brazilian who pierces the midfield before looking for his center forward in depth. Its transmission is not adjusted.

The stadium wakes up

The public of Fos-sur-Mer launches a particularly noisy “To arms”, after a rather sluggish start to the match from the Olympians.

VIDEO – The splendid goal of Norwich which makes OM doubt

A magnificent strike on an error by Gueye and it has a cold shower effect…

Lopez takes no chances

The Marseille goalkeeper punches in a corner from the left. OM go back on the attack.

Ünder claims fault

The Turkish international stops playing but the referee does not whistle. Guendouzi concedes a dangerous free kick in stride and gets annoyed, just like Payet.

Corner for OM

It’s played quickly and it does nothing. OM are trying to react after this goal which surprised the Parsemain stadium.

Under’s reaction

The Turkish piston progresses in the axis and places a strike in front of the surface. It is countered, Norwich can revive.


Sorensen lands an unstoppable strike! Gueye intercepts a pass from Rashica but returns the ball to the Danish midfielder, who finds Lopez’s right corner, Norwich lead 1-0!

Unclear playing conditions

Under a blazing sun and on a lawn far from being in perfect condition, the actors do not evolve in ideal conditions.

Stop Krul!

Ünder does a lot of work on the right and crosses in front of the goal towards Guendouzi, who resumes at close range. The Norwich goalkeeper makes a huge save, his defense then wards off the danger. What an opportunity!

First alert in the Marseille defense

Rashica manages his dribble on Caleta-Car on the left and crosses into the box. The ball is finally cleared.

Let’s go between OM and Norwich!

The kick-off for this second OM preparation match is given by the men of Tudor!

Cardoze reassures on the OM transfer window and gives a figure

At the microphone of BFM Marseille, Jacques Cardoze, OM’s communication director, wanted to reassure Marseille supporters who are getting impatient about the club’s transfer window:

“Pablo Longoria said it, it’s a transfer window that can move at any time. We can expect that it can sometimes unblock from one day to the next. It’s an opportunity market As soon as we have the possibility of making a player who fits into the fixed patterns, in relation to the shortcomings, to what they want to do and to the wishes of Igor Tudor, they will do it and they will go quickly. You have to be patient. It’s always scary for the fans, but from inside the club, what matters is to stay calm and work properly. The watchword is to be calm and patient “There will be between 5 and 8 signings, there have already been 3. The numbers also depend on the opportunities. A lot can happen, both for arrivals and exits. There are still six weeks left.”

The composition of OM

Caleta-Car, Amavi, Ünder and Gueye enter the eleven.
