The context of OM – Toulouse
Olympique de Marseille is in fourth place in the standings with 30 points, one behind Stade Rennais, six points from Racing Club de Lens and eleven points from Paris Saint-Germain. The Bouches-du-Rhône club is aiming for a third consecutive victory after two successes against Olympique Lyonnais (1-0) and AS Monaco (3-2). During the international break during the 2022 World Cup, Igor Tudor’s players played a friendly game, losing 3-2 against Italians Sassuolo despite goals from Alexis Sanchez and Dimitri Payet. The Phocaeans face a Haut-Garonne team twelfth in the standings with 16 units. The group coached by Philippe Montanier is looking for a rebound after four unsuccessful matches including three defeats in a row against Racing Club de Lens (0-3), AS Monaco (0-2) and Stade Rennais ( 1-2). The TFC will have organized two preparation meetings against the Turkish teams of Basaksehir (2-2) and Galatasaray (1-2), during the World Cup in Qatar.
The probable line-ups of OM – Toulouse
Olympique de Marseille continues to deal with the absence of Moroccan attacking midfielder Amine Harit, who has been sidelined with a serious knee injury. Recovered from a thigh injury and back in training, Ivorian central defender Eric Bailly could sign his return to Igor Tudor’s squad. The two French internationals Jordan Veretout and Mattéo Guendouzi, finalists for the 2022 World Cup with the Blues against Argentina, are expected. As for the Toulouse Football Club, Philippe Montanier must deal with the unavailability of Mikkel Desler, Kevin Keben and Issiaga Sylla. A doubt surrounds the presence of Zakaria Aboukhlal, returned to the banks of the Garonne after the very good course in Qatar from Morocco, only beaten in the semi-finals by France (0-2) then dominated by Croatia in the small final (1-2).
