Rennes-OM, composition: big surprises in the Marseille 11! Gasset changes everything


By: Manu Tournoux

Stade Rennais and Olympique de Marseille face each other for the 26th day of Ligue 1, this Sunday (5:05 p.m.). Here is the expected line-up for the Marseille club.

After having released a typical team to raise the bar upon its induction, Jean-Louis Gasset conceded his first setback by carrying out a large rotation, Thursday, on the lawn of Villarreal (1-3). The Marseillais went through the very small door after a non-match, fearing to the end the specter of a comeback after their resounding victory in the first leg (4-0).

OM are diving back into the daily grind of Ligue 1 with a new test against Stade Rennais, one of the most successful teams of the calendar year. And this time, Gasset should not experiment.

It is therefore a safe bet that OM will regain their animation in 4-3-3 which has been their strength in recent weeks. Ndiaye is expected in his role as a free 9 and a half behind Aubameyang, who will make his comeback in the starting lineup. Harit should also start again in midfield.

The other Marseille executives are expected for this dangerous match, from Veretout to the central hinge Mbemba-Balerdi and the full-backs Clauss and Merlin. The irremovable Pau Lopez will hold his place in the goals.

The expected lineup for OM : Marseille : Lopez – Clauss, Mbemba (c), Balerdi, Merlin – Veretout, Gueye – Sarr, Ndiaye, Harit – Aubameyang.
