the probable components of the shock

Defeated by Feyenoord Rotterdam (4-3) last Thursday in the semi-final first leg of the Europa League Conference, and before the return match scheduled for next Thursday, OM (2nd with 65 points) welcome OL this Sunday evening (8:45 p.m. ) at the Vélodrome at the end of the 35th day of Ligue 1. For this shock of the French championship, Jorge Sampaoli, the coach of the Marseille club, will have to deal without Leonardo Balerdi and Konrad de la Fuente, both injured. For his part, Alvaro Gonzalez is still kept away from the group.

According to La Provence, OM will present themselves in a 4-2-3-1 with Steve Mandanda in the cages, protected by a four-man defense composed of Pol Lirola, William Saliba, Boubacar Kamara and Luan Peres, from the right to left. In the midfield, Mattéo Guendouzi and Pape Gueye will form the double pivot while Dimitri Payet will evolve a notch higher, in the position of playmaker. On the wings, Cengiz Ünder and Amine Harit will try to make Arkadiusz Milik shine, alone in point of the attack.
