At the other end, Luis Suarez was closer to the corner flag than to the goal with a sliced ​​shot.

Angers paid the price for missed opportunities.

The full-back rushed to the penalty area, then missed a couple of defenders, and then shot with his left foot into the post and past goalkeeper Yahya Fofana.

Before the break, Suarez, unnoticed in front of the gate, shot wide.

This time he caught up with Suarez. The Colombian controlled the ball and finished it off.

Klauss scored another goal in the 59th minute, selecting Gerson at the far post, who fired a shot wide of Fofana.

The game then returned to its previous pattern, with Angers creating and losing chances before Marseille ended the match by rolling the ball at walking speed.

Marseille was weakened by prohibitions. Coach Igor Tudor was sent off for accumulating yellow cards and midfielder Nuno Tavares was suspended.
