Marseille Europe League woes continues with 3-1 loss
Marseille Europa League campaign continued to get worse with a 3-1 defeat at home to Apollon Limassol to leave last years finalists last with just a point in Group H ending with nine men.
With nothing to play for but pride Marseille were down to ten men with Boubacar Kamara conceding a penalty and got sent off and Anton Maglica gave the away side the lead but Florian Thauvin equalised but Maglica header and Marios Stylianou sealed the win with Lucas Ocampos sent off in stoppage time.
Rudi Garcia Marseille coach after the 3-1 loss to Limassol said;
“This Europa League was very bad, it started badly and it ends badly. But I do not want to blame the players who fought. We tied at ten against eleven, we hit the post at 1-1 and we can not hide the fact that we played ten unfairly at the end of the 5th minute (of the 7th minute) … To say that is not to be objective. He told Le Equipe
“After this huge game, the players have done the right thing to return to the game and try not to lose it. The ” Garcia resignation ”? Me I continue to give the best with my staff and my team, there is no reason that we do not reach our objectives. We must look ahead, we have two games to win before the break, we must win against Strasbourg and qualify (in League Cup), it will turn, you have to work and the players work. “
