In the wake of the defeat conceded by PSG on the lawn of the Vélodrome, Daniel Riolo pointed to the Mbappé-dependence.
Olympique de Marseille created the feat against PSG. At least if we refer to the history between the two rivals. Because the success won by OM on Wednesday in the round of 16 of the Coupe de France hardly suffers from dispute. The victory was also expected given the recent outings of both teams. And all the more so in the absence of Kylian Mbappé, on the flank due to a thigh injury.
“Everyone must have thought at one point that if Mbappé had been there, there are some spaces that would have been better exploited by the Parisians. We know that it is the weapon of PSG and there is no other in this club, there is only Mbappé. We kill ourselves repeating it and people don’t always want to hear it, but there’s only him.”has also entrusted Daniel Riolo to the microphone of RMC.
“Without him this Wednesday and with a full OM, able to press everywhere without a drop in intensity, we saw what we expected. Namely a superior Marseille who was not afraid even in the one-on-one. Neymar and Messi tried to break through but they came up against a valiant Marseillais who still wanted to get the balls out and who did an incredible job in the middle. In the middle, it’s good to make little ballads and famous dry-cleaning trips, he continued. But the midfield is also about working and creating. It turns out that at OM the working midfielders are even capable of passing forwards like Rongier, Veretout and Guendouzi. Congratulations to the whole OM team who really went above and beyond. »
