OM will be asking for a win on the green carpet of their match in Nice by arguing over the end of the canon match of the Sampaoli era, on Wednesday against the LFP’s Disciplinary Committee.
The three points on the green carpet and nothing else. OM appears before the Disciplinary Committee of the Professional Football League (LFP) on Wednesday (6 pm) pending a sporting penalty in their favour, after the match was stopped in Nice in the 75th minute after clashes between fans and players. Marseille led 1-0 when Dimitri Payet at the back received one of the many projectiles fired from the start of the match by Nice supporters. The player threw the bottle again, causing a crowd of people and a sharp tension occurred.
Concerned for their safety, Marseille decided not to resume the match when the governor ordered the referee to do so. Since then, Marseille has considered the victory on the green carpet deserved. To do this, they have compiled a file in which they remarkably highlight the “Sampoli effect”.
This sums up the strong tendency of the Marseille team to score in the last quarter of the hour since the Argentine coach was appointed to the bench in Marseille last March. The numbers prove it, Steve Mandanda’s teammates scored 39% of their goals in the last 15 minutes in 14 L1 matches in Sampaoli. Either the most prolific period in Marseilles.
Galtier teams are very strong in the last quarter of the hour
The stats are higher than those of other teams topping the rankings such as Rennes (31%), Monaco (30%), Lyon (26%), Lille (23%) or Paris Saint-Germain (22%). Nice, for its part, scored only 13% of its goals in this period (13%). But the gym can make another argument to counter OM’s argument. Since March 10, Christophe Galtier’s teams (Lille and then Nice) have conceded only one goal in the last quarter of the hour (out of eight conceded). Aiglons will be able to enhance his defensive toughness. They also defend the three points.
