Olympique de Marseille won 0-1 against Reims in the match of the 34th day of Ligue 1. Here is the rating and appreciation of Boubacar Kamara, holder during this match in Reims.
Olympique de Marseille really had to win their match against Reims at the end of the 35th day of Ligue 1. The Marseilles had to keep the 6-point lead over Monaco and Rennes, and it was not easy. Faced with an ultra-defensive Stade de Reims, with a big low block but also moments of pressing, the team proposed by Jorge Sampaoli lacked rhythm and movement. Apart from a long shot from Milik at the start of the match, the Marseilles got very few chances. The first half is above all a series of bad passes and questionable choices. The Argentinian coach decided to bring in Payet and Gerson in the second half, which brought more technical precision and more movement, a feeling confirmed by the (late) entry into play of very restless Dieng. Gerson was very close to opening the scoring following a cross from the Senegalese international, but the Brazilian finally scored the only goal of the match following a pass from Payet. The former Flamengo joker mystified the defense with a magnificent technical gesture and a strike from the right. A splendid goal and a very important victory.
Established as a defensive midfielder but repositioned in the axis of the defense, Kamara was still the balancing element of the team…

His appreciation FCM
Kamara, the essential (starting)…
Aligned in his usual role of defensive midfielder with the ball, defender without, Kamara was once again decisive. The kid feels the game, cuts the pass lines, is solid in duels and plays fair in his passes. Repositioned in the defensive axis following the exit of Kolasinac at half-time, he was sure in his game. An essential element but who should unfortunately leave his training club without transfer compensation this summer, his replacement will surely be a challenge. major of the summer transfer window…
|The Team||7/10||An essential point of balance, he first had a dual role: a sort of libero in a three-man defense when OM were defending, he went up a notch as a sentry when his team attacked. He slipped into central defense in the second half without concern. Replaced by Caleta-Car (79th).|
|Maxifoot||6.5/10||A serious game for the Olympique de Marseille midfielder. In a sentry role, the young Marseille talent had his usual contribution to recovery with several scraped balls. In addition, it is necessary to underline his great precision in his transmissions to find his teammates in the heart of the game. Solid during his passage in central defense after the break.|
