The club from Marseille, which was beaten against Galatasaray (4-2) on Thursday evening, retired from the Europa League.
For OM only one win counted. With the defeat on Thursday evening in Turkey against Galatasaray (4-2), Sampaoli’s men said goodbye to qualifying for the second round of the Europa League. After this 5th and penultimate day of the group stage, the Marseillais can no longer finish in second place in Lazio, who also won in Moscow (0-3).
In a hostile atmosphere, like muscle duels and a few bottles tossed by Turkish fans, OM and Dieng missed the address in front of the goal. The Senegalese striker, who forced Muslera to venture out of his area (5th), found the flank (42nd) but missed the frame after returning from the locker room (47th).

Galatasaray, on the other hand, used his three shots in the first period with a double from Cicaldau (1-0, 12th), before Caleta-Car Lopez countered a shot by the same Romanian (2-0, 30th).

The comeback, which scored three more goals, still seemed like an impossible feat, especially after the skylight was cleaned by the incoming Babel (4-1, 83rd). Milik reduced the result with a header (4-2, 85th) for the final thrill of this black Thursday in Marseille.
On the last day, in the Velodrome against Lokomotiv Moscow, OM can secure a ticket for the play-offs of the Europa League Conference, Secure place 3. Strange consolation.
