Lorient-OM, composition: huge decision from Gattuso


By: Manu Tournoux

Olympique de Marseille travels to Lorient this Sunday for the 15th day of Ligue 1 (8:45 p.m.). Here is the expected line-up for the Marseille club.

After weeks of trial and error, has Gennaro Gattuso found the right formula for Olympique de Marseille? Accustomed to basing his system on a 4-man defense, the Italian technician broke his habits by establishing a 3-man defense against OL on Wednesday, during an Olympico won brilliantly by OM (3-0 ).

While Marseille needs to continue to capitalize and continue its rise in the standings, there is therefore no reason for Gattuso to change his tactical plan again. OM should present themselves to Lorient in the same animation in 3-4-1-2.

This system allows Mbemba, Gigot and Balerdi to evolve in a register that suits their qualities. It also offers the possibility of associating Aubameyang and Vitinha at the forefront, while the two attackers, prolific, complementary and accomplices on Wednesday, admitted to being comfortable in this animation.

Still deprived of Rongier (injured) and Ndiaye (suspended), Gattuso should still rely on executives Clauss, Veretout or Harit for this trip to Brittany.

The expected composition of OM : Lopez – Mbemba, Gigot (c), Balerdi – Clauss, Veretout, Ounahi, Lodi – Harit – Vitinha, Aubameyang.
