OM: Benoît Bastien referee in Rennes, Marseille scandalized

In the final sprint for second place in Ligue 1, Olympique de Marseille will travel to Rennes on Saturday for a crucial match. But many supporters suddenly become pessimistic after the appointment of Benoît Bastien as referee of the meeting. It is true that the statistics of the man in black with the Marseille club are not encouraging.

This 37th day of Ligue 1 could be decisive for Olympique de Marseille. Traveling to Rennes on Saturday, the Marseille club has the opportunity to dismiss, or relaunch a direct competitor in the race for second place. Suffice to say that the Marseillais will not have the right to make mistakes, knowing that AS Monaco also covets the status of runner-up to Paris Saint-Germain. Nothing to panic a priori, the team trained by Jorge Sampaoli being the best in the championship away from home.

Benoît Bastien does not succeed at OM

It could even equal a record in the history of Olympique de Marseille in the event of victory at Roazhon Park, with a possible total of 42 points away from the Vélodrome. And yet, many supporters begin to tremble because of the appointment of the referee. It is indeed Benoît Bastien who will lead the match between Stade Rennais and Olympique de Marseille. And the least we can say is that this official does not really succeed in the Olympians.

According to statistics from Who Scored relayed by Ohaime Passion on social networks, the Marseillais have only won 7 of the 28 matches played under the orders of Benoît Bastien, i.e. only 25% success with this referee. This season, the native of Epinal has crossed paths with Olympique de Marseille twice, for a goalless draw against Paris Saint-Germain, and a defeat against Olympique Lyonnais (2-1) at Groupama Stadium. Nothing very reassuring for the unfortunate semi-finalist of the Europa League Conference.
