MATCHS DU JOUR 8
Transferring from Manchester United, Eric Bailly played and lost 2-0 in his first Champions League match with Marseille on Wednesday night. It was against Tottenham, a club he has played several times in the Premier League.
The Marseille team played for a long time with the Londoners before being forced to play with a numerical disadvantage because of the exclusion of the Congolese Chanel Mbemba. For the Ivorian defender, this is the turning point of the game. We are all the more disappointed because we could have taken at least a point," said the Olympian.
We made a mistake that cost us dearly and with 10 men it was complicated. On the tackle of Mbemba, these are decisions that we take in a second. But we were solid, we just made that mistake. I wasn't surprised by our first half, we worked very well for a week. It showed, we made it difficult for the opponent. After the red, we finally broke down. With these great strikers, it's all about one detail, one second of distraction. The most important thing is the positive things we did. We lost three points but we still have cards to play".
