The probable holders against Montpellier

Tomorrow evening, Olympique de Marseille will receive Montpellier during the 31st day of Ligue 1 at 20:45. Which team could field Jorge Sampaoli against the Héraultais?

Jorge Sampaoli will have quite a complete group when they receive Montpellier despite some absences. Indeed, Balerdi (shoulder surgery) and Konrad (injured) are logically not called up by the Argentine tactician for Sunday night’s match. After a shock during Thursday’s game against PAOK, Bakambu is also not allowed to attend this southern derby, the Olympic coach confirms.

Pau Lopez returns in goal. The defense against Saint-Etienne needs to be renewed. Rongier could return to his role as a piston on the right, while Luan Peres could take the place of Kolasinac on the other side. A Gerson-Guendouzi midfielder appears to be in force for the Montpellier reception. Unless surprised, Payet should go on the offensive with Under and Dieng by his side.

In a press conference, Jorge Sampaoli confirmed that Bakambu would be absent from the match against Montpellier after a shock received against PAOK on Thursday. Suspended for the return game against PAOK, Gerson and Kamara should start tomorrow night. Dieng, who is in the same situation as the two players mentioned above, could also return to the eleven. Although he hasn’t played a minute since the return leg against Basel, Peres could also be back and replace Kolasinac.

“Guendouzi’s physical condition is exceptional. He can recover very quickly, he has less chance of injuries. He also managed to push himself, which can be seen in his selections for the French team. After all, he is the soul of the team. He hasn’t progressed thanks to me, it’s in general, he’s matured, he’s on his way to becoming one of the best midfielders in the world.
