The WTF celebration of Payet
While OM were heading into the trap set by the Reims formation, Jorge Sampaoli’s men obtained a penalty at the 98 th minute. The Marseille captain, Dimitri Payet was quick to transform him and allow his team, after extra time to avoid an embarrassing defeat.
In a moment of euphoria, the player of 22 years old, who had received a bottle throw during the match against OL , went to look for a Christmas hat to celebrate your goal in the spirit of the end of the year holidays. A celebration that the French international had already achieved in 100, on the occasion of a victory against Nîmes.
Thanks to this goal, Olympique de Marseille remains in contact with OGC Nice, second in Ligue 1 at the time of the winter break . The Phocéens are more than ever close to an r etour in the Champions League thanks to a rather attractive level of play.

Payet’s record in sight
This season, Payet is more than ever the essential man in the formation of Jorge Sampaoli. Author of 7 goals and 6 assists in Ligue 1, the former West Ham player is on cloud nine with the goal of being the first player in history to count 100 goals and 98 assists.
For the moment, the playmaker is at 82 goals and 98 assists in the elite of French football. Suffice to say that his goal is close, as Payet’s form remains constant, year after year.
