OM-Troyes: probable lines

After their elimination from the Europa League following their 4-2 defeat on the lawn of Galatasaray last Thursday, OM will try to end their week well against Troyes this Sunday evening (8:45 p.m.) at the Stade Vélodrome at the end of the 15th day of Ligue 1. For this match, Jorge Sampaoli, the coach of the Marseille club, will simply have to do without Cengiz Ünder, injured.

According to L’Équipe, OM will appear in 3-4-3 with Pau Lopez in the cages, protected by a three-player defense made up of William Saliba, Leonardo Balerdi and Luan Peres, from right to left. Valentin Rongier, Boubacar Kamara, and Mattéo Guendouzi will lead the midfield while Dimitri Payet will be positioned a notch higher, in a role of playmaker. Amine Harit and Konrad de la Fuente will accompany Arkadiusz Milik, expected at the forefront of the phocaean attack.

The probable composition of OM according to L’Équipe : Lopez – Saliba, Balerdi, Peres – Rongier, Kamara, Guendouzi – Payet – Harit, Milik, De La Fuente

Note that the regional daily La Provence rather sees a 3-2-4-1 with a hesitation between Lopez and Steve Mandanda for the post of goalkeeper, Duje Caleta-Car in central defense or Pol Lirola on the right wing of the attack.

For its part, Troyes remains two consecutive defeats in the league against Lens (4-0) and Saint-Étienne (0-1). For this trip to Marseille, Laurent Batlles, ESTAC coach, will be deprived of Yasser Larouci, Philippe Sandler, Karim Azamoum, Brandon Domingues and Metinho, all injured.

According to L’Équipe, Troyes will come in 5-4-1 with Gauthier Gallon, protected by a five-player defense made up of Giulian Biancone, Adil Rami, Jimmy Giraudon, Yoann Salmier and Youssouf Koné, from right to left. In the midfield, Rominigue Kouamé and Florian Tardieu will form the double pivot while Tristan Dingomé and Mama Baldé will evolve on the sides. Yoann Touzghar is expected at the forefront of the Trojan attack.
