Matteo Guendouzi and Jonathan Klaus were affected during the first leg at the Velodrome, and can return to the field during OM’s trip to Lisbon on Wednesday in the Champions League. If Marseille regains the French environment, the correct piston will remain uncertain for the trip to Portugal.
OM will conduct a final training session at the Robert Louis-Dreyfus Center on Tuesday morning before heading to Lisbon. It remains to be seen which players will make up the Marseille squad for the duel against Sporting Portugal on Wednesday during the fourth day of the Champions League (from 9pm. RMC Sports 1).
Matteo Guendouzi, who lost in the defeat to Ajaccio (1-2) after a blow he received in the first leg against Sporting, will be the one in this group. Good news for Igor Theodor. The Marseille coach could decide, as in London against Tottenham, to develop the former gunner in a more offensive role. For example besides Amin Harit to strengthen his midfield.
Answer on Tuesday for Klaus
This Monday, two days before the capital is once again shocked for possible European qualification, there is still a bit of uncertainty surrounding Jonathan Klaus’ presence in Portugal.
Injured in his hamstring a week ago during the first leg (4-1), the French international recovered faster than expected. So much so that Igor Theodor surprised everyone by explaining on Friday that he could be taken back for the trip to Lisbon. The decision will be made at the last minute by the organ and player but there is real hope that the former Linsuez will be part of the Olympic squad.
