Eintracht Frankfurt – Olympique de Marseille: the probable compositions

    Marseilles

It’s the day or never for Olympique de Marseille to take revenge! Beaten 1-0 by Eintracht Frankfurt in their Orange Velodrome last month, Igor Tudor’s men have since turned the tide. Thanks to their two victories against Sporting Portugal, the Phocaeans are now in second place in Group D, two lengths ahead of their opponent of the day.

On paper, winning in Germany would therefore allow Alexis Sanchez’s partners to do themselves justice, but above all to qualify for the round of 16! To meet this challenge, the Marseillais will however have to do without the services of Éric Bailly and Pape Gueye, both injured. Not enough to upset Tudor’s plans, however.

OM can hit the jackpot

Unsurprisingly, the Croatian should line up a 3-4-2-1 with Pau Lopez in the cages. In front of him, a three-man defense made up of Chancel Mbemba, Leonardo Balerdi and Samuel Gigot. Valentin Rongier and Jordan Veretout will be in charge of recovery. Jonathan Clauss and Nuno Tavares will blast the sides, while Mattéo Guendouzi and Amine Harit will play in support of Alexis Sanchez. Opposite, Eintracht is not yet dead.

A victory against OM combined with a success for Tottenham against Sporting CP would even allow him to take second place from the Phocaeans. To hope to achieve this feat, the winner of the last Europa League should offer a team articulated in 3-4-3 with Trapp in goal, Smolcic, Jakic and Ndicka in defense. Dina Ebimbe, Rode, Sow and Kamada will be present in the midfield. The attack will undoubtedly consist of Götze, Kolo Muani and Lindström.
