Marseille plays tonight in Montpellier, the best defense of the championship. A move that could restore confidence to attackers Marseille. It will be a clash between the only two teams in Europe who have held Paris Saint-Germain in check this season. For ten games, OM, the new dolphin of PSG, no longer suffered defeat, and Montpellier, seventh, lost only once and conceded only three goals. “We are playing on a difficult field against a very good team, very difficult to maneuver this year and which remains on a very good series” , warns Marseille coach Rudi Garcia. Scorers OM failed If OM scored in each of its fourteen matches in Ligue 1, Montpellier has returned seven clean sheets (matches without conceding a goal), a performance only matched by the PSG. But that does not scare Rudi Garcia. “We met the best defenses of the championship, Paris (2-2), Caen (5-0). At the time we played them, it did not stop us from scoring ” , launches the OM coach. The beating against Caen, November 5, is the last game where a leading striker from OM found the net. It was Kostas Mitroglou, who had also missed a lot that night. But since then, the Marseille attack has hardly advanced. Clinton Njie has not scored in two and a half months, but the Cameroonian has at least caused the goal against his side that saved the OM Konyaspor (1-1), at the last minute in the Europa League, there at ten days. For Valère Germain, the last goal goes back even to August 24, an eternity on the scale of football. “It does not worry me, replica Garcia, they work in training. We manage to be second without our advanced attackers working well. ” The subject visibly annoys the coach who defends his goal scorers. “You have to leave them alone” , pleads the technician. For him, only one solution for his players to find their way back to the net: “Repeat their scales in training, focus on the gesture and not on the purpose of the gesture in competition. Make them work and tell them that you believe in them. ” Scoring in the best defense tonight in Montpellier could, perhaps, break the curse. Montpellier – Marseille, tonight at 21h, on Canal +.
