This Tuesday evening, Olympique de Marseille lost sharply against FC Porto, as part of the third day of the Champions League (3-0). Thus, the Marseille club still has 0 points in 3 matches played in this 2020-2021 edition of the competition..

Not the slightest goal for Payet in the Champions League

Holder for the occasion, Dimitri Payet had a chance to recover. He was left on the bench against Manchester City last week at the Orange Velodrome (0-3). At a pre-match press conference, he did not deny that he had been touched in his pride. I am someone who likes to play this kind of game. I was disappointed not to play that game. A strategy has been put in place by the coach. You have to respect your choices. We tried something“, he assured.

This Tuesday night in Portugal, he shot a penalty that could have revived his team in the match, while they were behind (1-0 at the time). However, Payet sent his ball over the goal and could not do anything to prevent the defeat of OM.

A statistic unveiled by Opta underlines a disastrous record for the French international in the queen competition of clubs. In 18 appearances in the Champions League, he has a record of 0 goals. And a missed penalty.
