Big relief for OM – Football.fr
Jorge Sampaoli’s OM will not be reduced that much for the shock against Brest, Saturday afternoon in Ligue 1.
After two victories in 4 days, against Troyes (1-0) and Nantes (0-1), theOM, suddenly 2nd in Ligue 1 in front of Rennes, can hope to continue with the arrival of Stade Brestois, Saturday (5 p.m., live on Prime Video), as part of the 17th day. Dimitri Payet, Cengiz Ünder and Bamba Dieng, all three uncertain, are in the group of Jorge Sampaoli unveiled Friday evening.
The Phocéens playmaker, author of 6 goals and 5 assists this season – and still sparkling against the Canaries on Wednesday – was dispensed from Friday morning training, physically spared by the technical staff. It remains to be seen if he can hold his place of entry against the Finistère formation, 11th after 5 successes in a row.
Ünder, after 4 missed matches due to back pain, should resume competition and occupy the right wing of the device of the Argentine coach. He is OM’s second top scorer behind Payet with 4 goals. As for Dieng, hit in the knee, he was not on the scoresheet at La Beaujoire. He stands ready to play, even though Konrad De la Fuente could be renewed on the left wing of 3-2-4-1.
