Large winner of Lorient last weekend, OM continues a new reception at the Stade Vélodrome this Sunday evening (8:45 p.m.) against PSG at the conclusion of the 11th day of Ligue 1, after having obtained the point of the draw on the lawn of Lazio Rome (0-0, the video summary here) last Thursday in the group stage of the Europa League. For this Classic against Paris, Jorge Sampaoli, the coach of the Marseille club, will be able to count on a whole group with the presence of Cengiz Ünder, however uncertain in recent days.

According to L’Équipe, OM will appear in 3-2-4-1 with Pau Lopez in the cages, protected by a three-player defense made up of William Saliba, Duje Caleta-Car and Luan Peres, from right to left. Valentin Rongier and Boubacar Kamara are expected in front of the defense while Mattéo Guendouzi and Dimitri Payet will be positioned a notch higher on the field. Cengiz Ünder, on the right, and Gerson, on the left, will evolve on the sides of the Marseille attack and will try to serve Arkadiusz Milik, alone in point.
The probable composition of OM according to L’Équipe : Lopez – Saliba, Caleta-Car, Peres – Rongier, Kamara – nder, Guendouzi, Payet, Gerson – Milik
According to La Provence, a doubt still exists between Ünder and Pol Lirola concerning the right wing of OM. The same goes for the left side between Bamba Dieng and Konrad de la Fuente. The regional daily sees Gerson on the bench no matter what.

For its part, PSG is soaring in Ligue 1 with a comfortable leadership position but without fully convincing in the collective game since the start of the season. For this Classic, Mauricio Pochettino, the coach of the Parisian club, will have to compose without Sergio Ramos, still in the recovery phase, while Leandro Paredes and Sergio Rico are injured. Recently embarrassed in the adductors, Neymar is present, just like Mauro Icardi, plagued by marital problems.
According to L’Équipe, PSG will appear in 4-2-3-1 with Keylor Navas in the cages, protected by a four-player defense made up of Achraf Hakimi, Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe and Abdou Diallo, from right to left. In the midfield, Marco Verratti and Idrissa Gueye will form the double-pivot while Lionel Messi will evolve to the position of number 10, in the position of playmaker, with Angel Di Maria on his right and Neymar on his left. Kylian Mbappé will be at the forefront of the Parisian attack.

Note that the regional daily Le Parisien relies on the same starting line-up. In addition, L’Équipe specifies that if Neymar were to finally start on the bench, PSG would rather play in a 4-3-3 with Ander Herrera in the midfield.
