Launched in depth, Sarr fell in the area in contact with Mosquera. After checking with the VAR, Mr. Serdar Gözübüyük indicated the penalty point. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang grabbed the ball. The Gabonese converted the penalty (43rd) allowing OM to lead three goals to zero at the break. In the second act, the former Arsenal player scored a magnificent cross-shot, which lodged in the opposite corner of Pep Reina on Marseille’s fourth goal (59th). With this double, Aubameyang scored his 32nd and 33rd career goal in C3 (Europa League and UEFA Cup combined). Which allowed him to become the top scorer in the history of the competition.

It’s an efficiency that impressed many this Thursday evening. OM played their game. On an overflow from Jonathan Clauss, the French full-back, served by Iliman Ndiaye, crossed into the Spanish area and Jordan Veretout, in full excess of his duties, placed a header to deceive Pepe Reina (22nd , 1-0). A few minutes, on a Marseille cross from Amine Harit, Yerson Mosquera missed his clearance and deceived his own goalkeeper. (27th, 2-0). Then, the Gabonese international, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, transformed the penalty caused by Sarr, to triple the lead (43rd). Twenty minutes to sink the Yellow Submarine.


If Villarreal sank collectively, certain individuals were costly to Marcelino’s troops, starting with the young Colombian defender, Yerson Mosquera. Indeed, the rock on loan from Wolverhampton initially accidentally missed his intervention, thus sending the ball into his own net against a disillusioned Pepe Reina (27th). A little later, wanting to save his family, the native of Apartadó attempted a very dangerous delayed tackle on Ismaïla Sarr, launched deep into the Spanish area. With the support of VAR, OM won a penalty the opportunity to triple the stake, successful by PEA. Yerson Mosquera is at fault for two of OM’s four goals.

While Villarreal’s ship was already sinking, the Spanish coach, Marcelino, tried everything, making three changes after returning from the locker room including the entry into play of Alberto Moreno, instead of by Aïssa Mandi. Quickly, the Spanish left side made a first big mistake on Iliman Ndiaye (52nd). Ten minutes later, encore repeated this time on Ismaïla Sarr. He thus received a second warning, synonymous with expulsion (62nd). The native of Seville played less than twenty minutes to leave his teammates reduced to ten, thus definitively burying the chances of the Yellow Submarine. Marcelino was forced to ask his players to come down, avoiding increasing the scoreboard.
