The French press did not hold back their praise after Alexis Sánchez’s performance in Olympique de Marseille’s triumph against Sporting de Lisboa 3-1 on date 3 of the Champions League.
This is how the chain CMR pointed out that “Alexis Sánchez perfectly negotiated his start to the match against Sporting. Preferred instead of Luis Suárez at the forefront of the attack, the 33-year-old Chilean scored a goal full of opportunism.”
Meanwhile, the French section of eurosport commented that after the goal “‘Niño Maravilla’ continued his effort until the end without giving up. However, there was enough. He ended up causing the fourth goal, but then the inevitable failed. In short… More than ever leader and soul of this team”.
FranceTV, meanwhile, said Alexis was “hyperactive as always, his effort and many runs were rewarded at the start of the game by scoring Marseille’s first goal of the season.”
While Footmercato commented that it was “leader of the Marseille rebellion after the tie, pushed his teammates to come and look very high at the Lisbon people, thus provoking Adan’s mistakes. A full match was not rewarded in the fair value of him despite his goal.”
