Champions League: Marseille Missed a Golden Opportunity

Champions League: Marseille Missed a Golden Opportunity. Defeated by Olympiakos at the Velodrome (0-1), OM has missed a golden opportunity to qualify on Wednesday night for the 8th finals of the Champions League.

At nearly ten minutes, Marseille was in eighth-finals of the Champions League. Deschamps players had gone to settle for a draw against Olympiakos, Arsenal led against Borussia Dortmund, and the combination of these two results was enough for the happiness of Marseilles.

But this score parity, OM was unable to keep up the final whistle, Steve Mandanda bowing late in the game on a shot from Fetfazidis (82).

And if the Phoenicians may regret their lack of realism, they also conceded far too many opportunities to exit the game completely free. In the end, Marseille tilts against Olympiakos (0-1) and will play its future in the Champions League in two weeks in Dortmund. In the group F, Arsenal has in turn dominated the Borussia (2-1) and advanced to the 8th.
