Villarreal-OM, pre-match

The Marseillais have one foot and four toes in the quarter-final of the Europa League. 4-0 winners over Villarreal in the round of 16 first leg on March 7, Jean-Louis Gasset’s men travel to their Spanish opponents on Thursday (6:45 p.m.). For them, everything will be a question of attention and good management. The sadly historic “comeback” suffered in 2017 by PSG who beat FC Barcelona 4-0 in the first leg before being beaten 6-1 on the return leg (in the 8th round of C1), is still present in people’s minds.

But the Marseille coach warned his players. Jean-Louis Gasset has finalized his plan, so that his OM does not take the same path as PSG seven years ago. “We’re not going to go after them as high as at the Vélodrome, but we’re going to try to take the ball from them and quickly attack the spaces behind them. » It remains to be seen how Marseille will resist Villarreal’s desire for revenge.

The Villarreal-OM match will kick off this Thursday, March 14 at 6:45 p.m. and the match will be broadcast both on W9 and on Canal+ Foot. It will also be followed live with commentary on our site.

Under threat of suspension for the next yellow card he receives, Clauss will start on the bench. On the Spanish side, Marcelino will opt for a classic 4-4-2. Sorloth and Moreno will take charge of the attack.
