There is a full scale revolt going on by the deeply unhappy Marseille fans against their club. L'OM lost seven straight matches in the Ligue till their weekend draw against Nice, were knocked out of the French Cup by third division US Quevilly, and their third string goalie Elinton Andrade was drafted for the Bayern Munich match following Steve Mandandas suspension.
Bayern fans on the other hand are a jocular lot having seen their side swat aside their CL opponents although the dizzying gyrations at the top of the Bundesliga is another matter altogether. And today's match was no different as Bayern won with Mario Gomez and Arjen Robben scoring the goals. Allianz Arena will be a tough place to overturn such a result in the return leg.
Franck Ribery, formerly at Marseille was booed on his return. Which sums up the dark clouds over that club.
