OM-Montpellier: the likely lineups

With six consecutive wins in all competitions, OM, third in the standings, will host Montpellier this Sunday evening (9pm) at the Vélodrome at the end of the 31st day of Ligue 1, three days after their narrow victory over PAOK Saloniki (2-1 ) in the quarterfinals of the Europa League Conference first leg. For this shock of the championship, Jorge Sampaoli, the coach of the Marseille club, Arkadiusz Milik will be robbed in the recovery phase, while Leonardo Balerdi and Konrad de la Fuente will be injured and absent until the end of the season. Finally, Alvaro Gonzalez is still excluded from the group.

According to L’Équipe, OM will present itself in a 4-3-3 with Pau Lopez in the cages, protected by a four-man defense consisting of Valentin Rongier, William Saliba, Duje Caleta-Car and Sead Kolasinac, from right to left. In midfield, Boubacar Kamara is expected in a sentry position with Mattéo Guendouzi as right torchbearer and Gerson as left torchbearer. Finally, the attacking trio will be Amine Harit, Dimitri Payet and Bamba Dieng.

The probable line-up of OM according to L’Équipe : Lopez – Rongier, Saliba, Caleta-Car, Kolasinac – Guendouzi, Kamara, Gerson – Harit, Payet, Dieng

Note that the regional daily La Provence sees more of a 3-2-4-1 with Pape Gueye in midfield or even Cengiz Ünder in the right lane of the attack.

Cabella in the MHSC group

Montpellier, for his part, has won just one of his last five Ligue 1 matches (three defeats, one draw) and is 11th in the standings, in the soft underbelly. For this trip to Marseille, Olivier Dall’Oglio, the coach of the Montpellier club, will have to do without Mihailo Ristic, who has been suspended, while Pedro Mendes and Joris Chotard are injured. Note the presence in the group of Rémy Cabella, the new recruit of the MHSC and former OM player.

According to L’Équipe, Montpellier will present itself in 4-2-3-1 with Jonas Omlin in the cages, protected by a four-man defense made up of Arnaud Souquet, Maxime Estève, Mamadou Sakho and Junior Sambia, from right to left. In midfield, Léo Leroy and Jordan Ferri will double as Téji Savanier, evolving up a notch, into a playmaker role. On the wings, Florent Mollet and Elye Wahi will try to serve Stephy Mavididi, expected on the point of attack.
