OM have the opportunity this Saturday to ensure their presence in the Champions League next season by winning at Rennes.
OM trembled for their place in C1 during the coming campaign. But, in the space of three days, the Marseille club has benefited from two favorable results which bring it considerably closer to the main event of the continent. First there was his own victory at Lorient last Sunday (3-0) and then Rennes’ misstep (4e) on the ground of Nantes on Wednesday (2-1).
OM still decimated
The Sampaoli team therefore only has a very small effort to make to be sure of finding the C1. She needs three points, or four if she wants to avoid going through the barrage box. A success this Saturday at Roazhon Park would bring him considerably closer to his goal. The task does not look easy in the face of an injured beast and in search of redemption, but the favors of the forecasts are clearly in favor of the dolphin of the PSG.
To bring back a good result from Brittany, Marseille will however have to overcome the many absences it has in its workforce. And there are still a few, since Payet, Bakambu and Balerdi are all in the infirmary. Rennes, for its part, does not have to suffer from this kind of problem since it will be complete for this tussle. On the other hand, the Red and Black have other ills to heal. Genésio’s team clearly seems to be losing momentum at the moment and if they want to avoid losing everything at the end of the season, they have every interest in pulling themselves together while there is still time.
The probable compositions
Rennes : A. Gomis; Omari, Aguerd, H. Traoré, Truffert; Santamaria, Majer, Tait; Terrier, Bourigeaud, Laborde.
Marseille : Mandanda; Bo. Kamara, Saliba, Caleta-Car; Rongier, Guendouzi, P. Gueye, L. Peres; Under, Harit, Gerson.
