Dimitri Payet 1 goal on historic double double

Great shock this Sunday, May 1, 2022, at the Stade Vélodrome in Marseille, where Olympique de Marseille face Olympique Lyonnais. Reunionese Dimitri Payet could break a record: reach 100 goals in Ligue 1. Already the author of more than one hundred assists in the French league, he is one goal from achieving a unique and historic double double.



At 34, Dimitri Payet is experiencing an exceptional season, one of his best since his debut in the professional world. Many football fans seem surprised. Yet the The Reunionese, always very confident in her football, had trumpeted earlier in the year that she would set a unique personal best. At the start of the season, when he had scored just 87 goals and 91 assists since his Ligue 1 debut, the Olympique de Marseille metronome set himself the challenge of reaching100 goals and 100 assists in Ligue 1. It is the goal. Nobody has done it yet (…) If I can leave this trace, it will show regularity and be remembered. The international with 38 appearances for 8 goals is on track to win his bet.

In fact, Reunion is halfway through. On Sunday 27 April 2022 he issued his 100 ° assists for the Brazilian Gersonagainst the Stade de Reims, during the 34 ° Ligue 1 championship day. Thus, with this season, he shows 99 goals and more than 100 assists on the counterattack in the first division. As for his assists, there is discussion. For Opta, the leading data company in world football, the Olympique de Marseille playmaker scored 111 goals times but for the Lega Calcio Professionisti (LFP)Dimitri Payet has to score once to reach the record from the 100 objectives to achieve the company of a Double-double (100 goals / 100 assist). The concept of a decisive step has existed since the 1986 World Cup, but was only considered by the 1994 World Cup.

If we stick to the Professional Football League stats (LFP)Dimitri Payet’s first professional assist dates back to 11 August 2007. He then played for AS Saint-Etienne and Bafetimbi Gomi had known how to bear fruit in the door caviar from Meeting. Of her 100 assists, the Reunionese will have offered eight goals for the national team, among other things on sets French Floriano Thauvinthe striker of the Blues Andre-Pierre Gignacreceived six.

The quality of Dimitri Payet passes is consolidated. With his Right foot – or even his left foot, the Olympic conductor can put a player in the best possible condition to score. Unsurprisingly, 39% of his bids are made soccer stopped. The numbers speak for themselves: 39 assists on strokes from set pieces and 61 assists in the game. A gifteda crack, a different player.

Dimitri Payet from Reunion is not always unanimous; finally if, at one point : his genius. World-class player with movement technique from velvet and game viewing extraordinaryDimitri Payet is often presented as a genius, a man with an erratic character and temperament. For FC Nantes coach Kanak Antoine Komboareit is obvious that the emotional Payet is a different player.He is not an easy guy to manage, capable of sulking, but he is a winner, a competitor with great statistics.

I like people with character. FC Nantes manager Kanak knows how dangerous the Marseille captain can be for his side.It is often decisive and is also the flagship of this Marseille. He is the technical boss, often decisive, capable of scoring exceptional goals. He is a great player. He left the training center in Nantes and this speaks to me (…)he continues.

For international Turkish under Cengizalso teammate of the virtuoso from Reunion Island Olympique de Marseille:Dimitri Payet is a great player and his involvement at his age is an example of this. During my career I have evolved with talented players. I have three in mind: Daniele De Rossi and Edin Dzeko at Roma, and Jamie Vardy at Leicester. But Payet is perhaps the most talented. He is a fighter. We can see that he still likes to play ball. I am very lucky to evolve with him. The presence of such an element motivates us.

The idol of the Stade Vélodrome is even entitled to the dithyrambic compliments of his coach Jorge Sampaoli. HAS the request “what other player Lionel Messi has impressed him in his career?, the former Argentina manager said yesthe possibility of managing very, very good days that allowed me to survive in this profession (…) There are two French players that I always remember, Samir Nasri and Dimitri Payet (…) I believe that Dimitri Payet plays a very high level.

Playing and performing match after match is Dimitri Payet’s way of envisioning things to achieve his collective and individual goals. Against Olympique Lyonnais this Sunday, Dimitri Payet will have the opportunity to bring all the Marseille people and his team to the top with him. OM has an obligation to take the three points to protect themselves from potential last-minute comebacks from AS Monaco, Stade Rennais, Racing Club de Strasbourg, Racing Club de Lens or even their daily opponent Olympique Lyonnais (OL). But Dimitri Payet is aware that the opponent he makes the most assists against is OL. Without a doubt he will do everything to shine yet another against him and if he can score on 100th objective on this occasion, he will not deprive himself of it.
