Olympique de Marseille did not miss its chance to win at the Parc des Princes this Sunday evening, putting an end to nine years of famine in all competitions, and ten years within the walls of its historic rival. Faced with a diminished PSG, without Kylian Mbappé, Marquinhos, Mauro Icardi and Keylor Navas, and with an Angel Di Maria and a Neymar barely recovered from the Covid-19, Olympique de Marseille delivered the perfect copy to win.

The Phocéens opened the scoring before the break through Florian Thauvin, then believed to be joined in the score on a goal from Di Maria canceled, before believing to have made the break but the goal of Benedetto was also canceled for a off-side. Before all that, OM stayed in the game thanks to a Steve Mandanda in great shape. The French international made three high-class saves during the meeting that changed his destiny. After the meeting, he expressed his pride and analyzed the victory of his team.
