In a boiling Nave Stadyum, Olympique de Marseille sank on Thursday against Galatasaray (2-4) during the fifth day of the group stages of the Europa League.
A defeat with serious consequences for the Olympians, already eliminated from this competition and who will have to fight against Lokomotiv Moscow to secure a place in the Europa Conference League.
An unflattering European record for Jorge Sampaoli's men, moreover after the assured qualifications of PSG and OL while LOSC is well positioned to advance to the final stages of the Champions League. Symbol of this Marseilles fragility on the European scene, a statistic can then be evoked and it is, unfortunately, without appeal.
Thus, OM have won only one of their last 19 European Cup games (6 draws, 12 losses) and are the only French club not to have won a European match this season.
