REPLAY. Atalanta-OM: Italian domination, late reaction and elimination… Relive Marseille’s defeat in the Europa League semi-final

Six years later, Olympique de Marseille hoped to return to the final of the Europa League. For this, the Marseillais had to get the better of the Italians of Atalanta Bergamo, this Thursday evening, while the draw had left the two teams on a status quo (1-1).

Atalanta 3-0 Marseille (4-1)

It’s time to close this live

Thank you all for following it and see you soon on

It’s over ! Elimination of OM

Marseille was no match for Atalanta this Thursday and lost 3-0 in Italy. There will be no new final for the Marseillais, largely beaten in this semi-final return after a parity score in the first leg, a week ago in Marseille (1-1).


Touré is finally rewarded! A few minutes after his failed face-off, the former Reims player overtook Balerdi and finished the job superbly in front of Lopez. It’s over for OM!

90′ Fireworks in Bergamo

90′ Touré too short

Koopmeiners’ cross is superb, but the Malian is a size too short to score a third goal for the Italians.

Four minutes of added time

90′ Correa misses his move

Close to the baseline, the Argentinian does not put enough power into his movement and allows Atalanta to recover the ball.

87′ The task seems impossible for OM

But, with a destiny like Real Madrid, the Marseillais can still turn this match around!

84′ Very big shock

A back header allows Moumbagna to win the ball in front of Musso, but the two players collide. The Argentinian goalkeeper remains on the ground, stunned.

83′ Touré attempts the return

The former Reims scorer tries to return following a cross, but he misses his move and ultimately does not touch the ball.

81′ Veretout hits hard

The Olympian free kick is kicked by Veretout who attempts a powerful strike, but Musso is not worried.

79′ Moumbagna throws himself

Launched in depth, the OM striker tries to pass to his teammate Aubameyang, better placed than him, but he finally finds an Italian defender.

77′ Last quarter of an hour

The regular time of this meeting continues to tick by and OM is still leading (and temporarily eliminated).

75′ Changes for Atalanta

Lookman, the first scorer of the match, is replaced by Touré, formerly of Stade de Reims. Zappacosta is replaced by Hateboer on the right lane.

73′ Moumbagna flagged offside

Hero of the match against Benfica, the OM striker went deep too early while Marseille wanted to push!

70′ OM bet on the attack

Merlin is replaced by Henrique, while Clauss leaves the pitch for striker Moumbagna.

68′ Good free kick for OM

The Olympians inherit a free kick about thirty meters from Musso’s goal, full axis.

66′ Merlin clears his side

Koopmeiners clears Balerdi to enter the area, then he crosses in front of Lopez’s goal, but Merlin is well placed and clears his camp!

63′ The bar for OM!

On this long free kick, Veretout tries to surprise Musso and finds the bar of the Argentinian goalkeeper. Too bad, this goal would undoubtedly have revived the Olympians.

62′ De Roon penalized

Merlin is slowed down by the arm of De Roon, the captain of Atalanta. The Dutchman is penalized with a yellow card.

60′ Atalanta injects new blood

De Ketelaere gives way to the former Monegasque Pasalic.

58′ Double change for OM

Sarr and Ounahi come into play. It is Mbemba and Ndiaye who take their place on the substitutes’ bench.

56′ Changes are brewing

OM will make changes to try to get back into this meeting.

54′ Mission impossible for OM?

The Marseillais must now score two goals to secure an extension, and three goals to secure their ticket to the final!


The punishment for Marseille! Following a classic one-two between Lookman and Ruggeri, the Italian piston unleashes a sharp strike with his right foot which lodges in Lopez’s top corner!

48′ What a miss from Ndiaye

In a duel against an advanced Musso, Ndiaye has time to attempt the lob, but the Senegalese international completely misses his move and cannot find the target! What an opportunity!!

Start of the second half

There are 45 minutes left for Marseillais to get back into this match and perhaps take the upper hand!

Half time!

It’s the break in Bergamo where Atalanta leads against Marseille after Lookman opened the score at the half-hour mark. OM, provisionally eliminated, will have to show a different face in the second half.

43′ Zappacosta small away net

On the counter-attack, the former Chelsea defender locks onto his right foot but still unleashes a strike. This finds Lopez’s small outside net.

42′ OM without solution

The one-two between Harit and Kondogbia produces nothing, while OM had possibilities on this offensive.

39′ New Italian strike

Scamacca continues to put the danger on the OM goal. This time he misses his shot outside the area.

37′ Point stats

Five shots on target for Atalanta Bergamo since the start of the match. Zero for OM!

35′ Lopez’s save

The Spanish goalkeeper makes another save in front of De Ketelaere and quickly goes out at the Belgian’s feet. OM is suffering!

33′ Lookman close to double

The first scorer slips as he enters the area and faces Pau Lopez. Fortunately for OM!

32′ Fouls pile up

De Roon’s pressure on Harit is not punished, but Aubameyang’s push on Emerson is.


What a Lookman number! The Nigerian inherits the ball in front of Kondogbia, while Clauss had gone up, then strikes from outside the area. His shot is blocked by Gigot and ends up in Lopez’s little net.

Lookman opens the scoring for Atalanta! ud83dudca5

OM are feverish and pay dearly: the Italians confirm their domination with this beautiful strike at the edge of the area… #ATAOM | #UEL

28′ Mbemba intervenes

The Congolese OM defender read the trajectory of Koopmeiners’ pass, close to arriving in the area, and was able to clear his side.

26′ Kondogbia tries his luck

With the ball at his feet, the former AS Monaco player gained ground and finally struck with his right foot 35 meters from Musso’s goal. It’s out of the box.

24′ The bar now!

New amount found by the Italians! Following this mix-up on a corner, Scamacca hits a pivot and finds Lopez’s bar, then De Ketelaere forces the Marseille goalkeeper to relax. Hot shot in the OM surface!

21′ The two teams respond to each other

OM and the DEA continue to fight blow for blow in this first period.

19′ Lopez’s gloves

Alone in the heart of the game, Zappacosta tries his luck from outside the area. His shot quietly finds Lopez’s gloves.

17′ Harit falls in the duel

Under the cover of Ederson, the Moroccan fell in the duel, but the referee considered that this was too little to call a foul.

15′ Scamacca hits wide

Served on the right side of the scorer, the Italian attempts a cross shot which does not pass far from the goals of Pau Lopez and ends at the end of the goal.

11′ Aubameyang resumed

The Gabonese is well followed by the Atalanta defender who recovers the ball after the deep pass towards the OM scorer.

9′ OM under (good) pressure

The Italians try to recover the ball high, while OM manages to get out of this pressure to advance. It is the visitors who have possession at the start of the match.

6′ The post for Atalanta

It was hot on Pau Lopez’s goal! Koopmeiners collapses in the area after his breakthrough then De Ketelaere eliminates the goalkeeper before finding the post!

4′ Hien intercepts

On the recovery, Clauss tries to find Aubameyang, but Hien, the Swedish defender, intervenes and finds his goalkeeper with a header.

3′ Pass too deep

New Olympian offensive with this pass from Aubameyang who tries to find Ndiaye. Musso recovers the leather.

2′ Aubameyang wanted

The deep pass to the Gabonese striker is too long and the attacker cannot catch it.
