“Marseille players look mentally tired,” wrote one of the observers on Twitter. No wonder, because the Marseilles team has already had a lot of bad experiences when it comes to throwing things at them. As recently as a few days ago, Dimitri Payet suffered. The Frenchman was preparing to take a corner against Olympique Lyonnais and was suddenly hit by a plastic bottle filled with water. It hit him near the ear. This happened in the second minute of the match and it has not been restarted.
The match between Galatasaray and Olympique Marseille ended with the hosts winning 4: 2. Arkadiusz Milik appeared in the first line-up of the visiting team, making both goals for his team.
