OM-Clermont, lines: 2 important changes in the Marseille 11!


By: Manu Tournoux

Olympique de Marseille faces Clermont for the 16th day of Ligue 1, this Sunday (5:05 p.m.). Here is the expected lineup for OM.

“Do you think I’m thinking about Milan? I’m thinking of Clermont and Montpellier, that’s all! “. Gennaro Gattuso did not beat around the bush when commenting on the setback conceded on the Brighton pitch on Thursday evening (0-1). If Olympique de Marseille has found its cruising speed in the championship, the Italian technician does not hesitate to raise his voice to optimize his team’s performance between now and the winter break.

The first obstacle will therefore be Clermont. Stuck at the bottom of the rankings since the start of the season, the Auvergne team seems within reach of this OM team. But Gattuso’s choices will still be scrutinized. The balance of the team is fragile.

Gattuso makes strong choices

In his tactical animation, Gattuso will focus on continuity. Although he was never a fan of this system during his career, it was with a 3-5-2 that the Italian found his salvation. A pattern that OM should still use to undermine Clermont this Sunday. The Aubameyang-Vitinha tandem is therefore called upon to continue on the attacking front.

However, two notable changes are expected for this match. The first would concern the return to the eleven of Gigot, who had been replaced by Meïté in England on Thursday. The second would be good news for the Marseille midfielder since Kondogbia is definitely back. For the rest, all the usual executives are expected, from Pau Lopez to Veretout, including Clauss, Mbemba, Balerdi and Harit.

The expected lineup for OM : Lopez – Murillo, Mbemba, Gigot, Balerdi, Lodi – Kondogbia, Veretout, Harit – Aubameyang – Vitinha
