A diminished attack on Brest?

Payet, Dieng and Ünder are all uncertain for the game against Brest on Sunday.

Second in Ligue 1 after his two consecutive wins against Troyes (1-0) and at Nantes (1-0), theOlympic Marseille receives Brest Saturday to try the pass of three. But that will not be an easy task since the Bretons are quite simply the fittest team in the championship. Unbeaten for 7 matches, the men of Michel Der Zakarian have just chained 5 consecutive wins !

A match that promises to be difficult for the Olympians, who could miss several weapons on the front of the attack. Present at a press conference this Friday, Jorge Sampaoli took stock of his players.

Payet, Dieng and Ünder are uncertain for the meeting. “Payet was not in training, he stayed indoors because we don’t take any risks with him. We will see its evolution to see if it is available for tomorrow “ he said in remarks relayed by The Phocaean. In great form this season, the Reunionese is the key to his team in attack, with 6 goals scored and 5 assists given to his partners. His absence could weigh in the balance.

The Argentine technician nevertheless hopes to be able to count on the return of Ünder, absent for nearly a month. “Dieng has persistent knee pain. Ünder has resumed with the group, but it’s not yet clear, we haven’t done a lot of work today, so we’ll see tomorrow if he can be available for part of the match tomorrow or just present ”, he added.

Sampaoli may have to call on his usual replacements to fill any absences.
