Tudor is committed to continuity
The Croatian coach ultimately made only one change from the first leg: Rongier replaced Ünder, which caused Guendouzi to step up and play alongside Harit, in support of Sanchez.
Two changes for Sporting
In addition to Adan, suspended and of course replaced by Israel in goal, Amorim brings Coates instead of St.Juste in the ashes of the defence. Only the Dutchman is injured and absent, in addition to Neto and Cabral.
The composition of Sporting
Israel – Gonçalo Inácio, Coates, Matheus Reis – Esgaio, Ugarte, Morita, Nuno Santos – Trincão, Pedro Gonçalves – Edwards
deputies: Paulo, Callai, Alexandropoulos, Rochinha, Issahaku, Paulinho, Porro, Gomes, Marsa, Nazinho
The composition of OM with Balerdi and Clauss
Lopez – Mbemba, Bailly, Balerdi – Clauss, Rongier, Veretout, Tavares – Guendouzi, Harit – Sanchez
deputies: Ngapandouentnbu, Blanco, Gigot, Kaboré, Gueye, Gerson, Payet, Under, Suarez
The Minots take the draw in the Youth League
A week after their defeat at home to Sporting (6-0), the young Marseillais took one point back from Lisbon (1-1). Having conceded the opener, the Minots managed to take the draw 11 to 10 for half an hour. They must now hope for a miracle to take second place in their group, synonymous with play-offs.
Group D standings two days after the end
- Sporty, 8 pt
- Frankfurt, 8 points
- Tottenham, 3 points
- TO2 points
Marseille fans arrested by Portuguese police
According to Correio da Manha and file, a bus carrying Marseille supporters was stopped by the Portuguese Police (PSP). OM fans would have caused damage to a gas station on the A1, and in particular a police car. The club is in contact with the local authorities and does not yet know whether these 50 supporters can travel to Lisbon to attend the match.

The suspected line-up of OM in Portugal
Guendouzi could move up a notch like at Tottenham or more broadly like at the start of the season. Uncertainty remains between Balerdi and Gigot for central defence, while Jonathan Clauss should be able to keep his place.
The suspected composition of OM: Lopez – Mbemba, Bailly, Balerdi (or Gigot) – Clauss, Rongier, Veretout, Tavares – Guendouzi, Harit – Sanchez.
