However, Tottenham's draw in the same period keeps OM in contention."
Le Figaro: "The OM is amazing. After the fifth day of the Champions League, the starting position in the race for a place in the round of 16 in the Champions League was favorable, but the French lost 1-2 to Frankfurt. A defeat that quickly signed."
