OM, still unbeaten in Ligue 1 Uber Eats, took a point at Angers on Wednesday night.


The Argentine coach announced it in a press conference. In the marathon of matches that awaits OM until October 3, the rotation will continue. This is the case tonight in Angers. Only four players are still in the starting line-up against Rennes at the Raymond-Kopa Stadium: Lopez, Balerdi, Lirola and Dieng. For the rest, Jorge Sampaoli has lined up Amavi, Caleta-Car, Kamara, Rongier, Gerson, Henrique and Harit.


Just before the quarter-hour mark, OM had the best chance of the first half. Dieng sent Henrique between two defenders who were trying to play offside but the Senegalese's pass was perfect. The Brazilian was alone against Bernardoni. He tried to avoid him by passing to the left of the goalkeeper who lay perfectly at the feet of the Marseille man to take the ball away.


The Angevins got off to a good start in the second half. While they had no shots in the first half, they did not have many more opportunities to score in their prime time.
Jorge Sampaoli made changes to try and liven things up. Ünder, de la Fuente, Peres and then Gueye and Guendouzi came on. The game was evenly balanced between the two sides, with Marseille successfully repelling SCO's attacks.
In the 83rd minute, de la Fuente launched Dieng into the middle. With his speed, he found himself in front of Bernardoni who pushed the Senegalese's shot away. The home side had two chances in the final minutes but both missed the target.
The two teams ended in a goalless draw. OM, still in second place, continue their unbeaten run in the league.
