From what I have read

The recaps point to a lack of organization and a lack of efficiency in attack were what lost OM the game. Too much wasted energy in attack, along with a lack of finishing. Apparently, Fletcher and Barrada wasted very good chances. Diarra played well, as usual, but the Basque team were more efficient and scored a wonderful goal. It sounds like more of the same from OM, a lot of effort but not a lot of scoring. Still plenty of soccer left to play for the next leg. Saint-Étienne played great against FC Basel today, so this weekend’s game could be a big challenge…
