OM’s line-up against Clermont: Gasset makes several changes


By: Manu Tournoux

For the opposition against Clermont this Saturday, the Olympian coach made several changes to his eleven.

OM faces Clermont this Saturday evening at home, on behalf of the 24e day of Ligue 1. The Phocéens will then seek to collect their second success in a row after that obtained against Montpellier last week.

Jean-Louis Gasset, the Marseille coach, will not be able to field the same team as the one that took over the Pailladins. Samuel Gigot is injured and unavailable for this match. On the other hand, Jonathan Clauss returns to the eleven after serving his suspension match. He will evolve as a piston and his counterpart on the left will be Garcia.

Gasset makes a strong choice in midfield

In central defense, no surprises. Chancel Mbemba, Bamo Meité and Leonardo Balerdi will compose the final curtain.

The Olympians will perform in a 3-5-2 system. He worked well in the previous two matches so there was no reason to change.

Pape Gueye will play as a recuperator since Veretout and Rongier are absent. He is associated with Kondogbia in the midfield. Amine Harit will perform in a slightly more advanced position.

In attack, we trust the duo Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Faris Moumbagna who were satisfactory during the last meeting.

OM’s eleven:

Paul Lopez; B. Meité, Mbemba, Balerdi; Clauss, U. Garcia – P. Gueye, Kondogbia, Harit; Moumbagna, Aubameyang.
