Argentinian striker Dario Benedetto, rookie of the Marseille transfer window, missed a penalty in Nantes (0-0 draw), his first opportunity to open his meter in his new colors, Saturday at the 2nd day of Ligue 1 .

The player, eagerly awaited by fans who have been demanding a forward center impact for several seasons, sent his attempt over the crossbar of the cage of Alban Lafont (28th).

The Canal + images showed Dimitri Payet, who is usually in charge of this exercise, offering the ball to Benedetto to take the penalty.

"We had worked well penalties with Dim (Payet) throughout the preseason.There is a positive intention (on the part of Payet) but when I see that Dario (Benedetto) will shoot, I'm upset," plagued André Villas-Boas.

"He was the penalty man at Boca Juniors, and today we missed that chance, and we have to wait until Dario is in better shape because he has not played for a long time. He has recovered from a very serious calf injury, it takes time, we have a little anticipation but he still lacks the physical freshness to finish the actions in front of the goal, even if his movements were good, his diagonals too " , nuanced the Portuguese technician.

OM have only one point on the clock in two games, after their inaugural defeat against Reims (2-0) last week.
