Olympique de Marseille achieved an important victory over SSDFT Team Green, 0-2, in the Mediterranean group.
The French side dominated at the start, coming close to the goal in the opening minutes with a free kick that went wide. After this, Team Green gained more control of the game with a strong presence in the midfield. Before the end of the first half, Bartelli tried to score for the Olympians with a long-range shot to the left of Nawaf Aldaws’ goal, missing its target.
At the start of the second half, striker Giovanni Versini stole the ball from the Saudi defense and scored with a lob. The same player almost scored his second goal ten minutes later after being left alone in front of the goalkeeper, but Aldaws showed his reflexes by blocking the shot.
A minute before the end of the match, the recently subbed in Gebresoy scored the final 0-2 for Olympique de Marseille. With their victory, the French squad is closer to qualifying for the next round of the Al Abtal Cup in the Mediterranean group.
