“We have to try to make a comeback,” Bailly warns OM


By: Manu Tournoux

Olympique de Marseille struck a big blow in the round of 16 first leg of the Europa League against Villarreal. The Marseille club crushed the yellow submarine with a score of 4 goals to 0.

Overtaken by the fiery attack of the Marseille club, former Marseille player Éric Bailly is aware of the task that awaits his team during the return match this Thursday. At a press conference, the Ivorian defender still believes in a comeback provided that the ingredients are put in place.

We must try to make a comeback even if it will be very difficult. The most important thing is to show what we did in the championship. Having conceded four goals, everyone thinks we are already eliminated from this competition. We’ve done this kind of thing before, you never know what might happen.” said the defender at a press conference.

And to continue: “MThe feeling is to be present on the pitch, to show a good image and a good face, which we didn’t do on the way out. If we thought we’d conceded 4 goals in the first leg, we wouldn’t have even traveled. It’s football, we are aware of that, we have to see how we can turn the situation around on Thursday. »

What are the likely compositions?

Olympique de Marseille has the opportunity to reach the quarter-finals of the Europa League and continue its great momentum since the arrival of Jean-Louis Gasset on the bench. The French technician should field a more than competitive team to deliver the final blow to Marcelino’s men.

The probable composition of OM: Lopez – Clauss, Mbemba, Balerdi, Merlin – Kondogbia, Veretout, Harit – Sarr, Ndiaye, Aubameyang.

The probable composition of Villarreal: Reina – Mandi, Bailly, Mosquera, Cuenca – Akhomach, Coquelin, Parejo, Baena – Guedes, Moreno.
