Bayern Munich-loanee Michaël Cuisance entered Olympique Marseille’s game against Stade Rennais F.C. in Ligue 1 in the 81st minute with the game knotted in a scoreless draw.
For the hard-luck midfielder, it was just the right time to make an impact.
Cuisance’s 88th minute goal helped secure three points for Olympique Marseille in the managerial debut of Jorge Sampaoli:
Cuisance has not always had an easy time this season while on loan, but his deftly-placed header proved to be the difference maker in the contest:

Aside of the goal, Cuisance complete his only long ball attempt, won his only aerial duel, and completed all three of his passes. The 21-year-old also added a clearance for good measure.
You could say, that was about as perfect a late-game substitute appearance as one could have.
The goal was Cuisance’s first of the season and ups his contribution number to two. In 27 games across all competitions, Cuisance now has one goal and one assist.
