Matteo Guendouzi had one of the games of his career so far on Sunday, helping Marseille thrash his former club FC Lorient.
Matteo Guendouzi continued his run of appearances for Marseille on Sunday, and he’s now started 10 of the 11 games available to him since joining on loan, coming off the bench in the 11th.
This was easily the best of the lot, with Guendouzi involved in three goals as his team won 4-1.
With Marseille going 1-0 down in the early stages, they were immediately in for a fight. But Boubacar Kamara fired home a deflected effort from a Guendouzi cutback in the 27th minute to level the scores before half-time.
Guendouzi himself then gave Marseille the lead with a header (I know, you have to see it to believe it) early in the second half.
Arkadiusz Milik doubled the team’s advantage to 3-1 in the 85th minute, before Guendouzi made certain of the result with another goal in injury time.
This time, the on-loan Arsenal midfielder picked up the ball on the edge of the box, turned a defender and lashed a shot across the box as he fell to the ground.
The ball was turned into the net by a Lorient man, but it was ruled to already be on target, so Guendouzi’s goal and the cherry on top of a perfect night for the 22-year-old.
You can watch all three of Guendouzi’s goal contributions here, at 1:40, 2:52, and 3:32.
