Pau Lopez, OM goalkeeper, cannot digest OM’s new away defeat on Wednesday in Reims (1-0). It takes the Marseillais a little further away from the European Cup.

As often this season, Pau Lopez delivered a harsh observation on the shortcomings of OM after the new defeat in Reims (1-0), Wednesday in a late match of the 32nd day of Ligue 1. It pushes Marseille a little further away of a European qualification even if everything will be decided on the last day. And OM will not be master of its destiny. A situation caused by the incredible inability of Marseille to shine away from the Vélodrome with only two victories and eleven points gleaned. The worst total of the season in Ligue 1 with Clermont.

“We are the worst away team”

“I think we are the worst away team,” laments the Spanish goalkeeper. “We are OM, even away from home, there are a lot of people who support us. The result is always the same, we played against teams reduced to 10 a lot of times, we had the opportunity to score , we missed goals, we made mistakes. There is no excuse, that’s the truth of this season. We showed it again today. I told myself that. was perhaps the time to change a little with the prospect of returning to Europe. We have to be honest with ourselves, accept what we did. Something didn’t work out and it’s not because of it. of the coaches who came, it was more the players who were not up to par.”

Chancel Mbemba, an unfortunate scorer against his camp on Wednesday evening, did not want to talk about this new failure which could deprive OM of the European Cup next season. Everything will be decided in Le Havre on Sunday, hoping at the same time for defeats for Lyon and Lens.

“When you lose, you don’t want to talk,” said the defender. “The most important thing is that we have to wear our shirts, we have to defend the club. The mistakes we made today, we will improve them tomorrow.”
