Very little used by Igor Tudor since the start of the season, Dimitri Payet signed a capital entry in Monaco to give victory to OM.
Launched by Igor Tudor in the 60th minute of play to replace Amine Harit, seriously injured, Dimitri Payet paid tribute to his Moroccan teammate in the best possible way by offering victory to Olympique de Marseille on the lawn of Monaco. In the space of 30 minutes, the Reunionese stood out for his activity and the precision of his right foot by offering a decisive pass to Jordan Veretout then another to Sead Kolasinac, two decisive goals which allowed the OM to overthrow ASM. As Ligue 1 takes a break with the World Cup this winter, there is no doubt that Dimitri Payet will go on vacation with a light mind.

The Bosnian went off to celebrate his first goal for OM with the Marseille fans, while Payet jumped like a child, as demonstrative as if he had scored himself.. At this moment, the number 10 of Olympique de Marseille certainly understood that the season was taking, collectively but above all personally, a good turn. To be confirmed after the World Cup…
