Olympique Marseille welcomes Frankfurt this Tuesday (9pm) at the Velodrome as part of the 2e A day in the Champions League group stage.
OM-Frankfurt, context of the meeting
After losing last week, when they entered the Champions League group stage at Tottenham (2-0), Marseille has already found itself in the obligation to beat Frankfurt in front of its fans. The victory over Lille (2-1) on Saturday night in Ligue 1 helped re-ignite a positive dynamic for Igor Theodor’s players. After suffering a heavy defeat against Sporting Portugal last week in C1, Frankfurt also finds itself up against the wall. The German club is still losing (0-1) against Wolfsburg in the German League and its start to the season is not the most reassuring.
Possible line-ups for OM vs Frankfurt
On the Olympic side, Igor Theodor will have to dispense with the services of Chancel Mbemba, who is excluded against Tottenham last Wednesday. On the other hand, Dimitri Payet should start the meeting as announced by Igor Tudor after the match against LOSC. Frankfurt would be without Botta, Toure, Linz and Rode.
Possible lineup for OM
OM: Lopez – Bailly, Balerdi, Kolasinac – Clauss, Rongier, Veretout, Tavares – Guendouzi, Payet – Sanchez.
Coach: Igor Theodor
The possible formation of Frankfurt
Frankfurt: Trapp – Pellegrini, Tuta, N’Dicka, Knauff – Sow, Jakic – Kamada, Götze, Lindstorm – Kolo Muani.
Coach: Oliver Glasner
