Possible lineup for OM in Portugal
As predicted yesterday, Guendouzi could develop to a higher degree like Tottenham or in general like the start of the season. Doubts remain between Balerdi and Gigot in the center of defence, while Jonathan Klaus should be able to hold his place.
Possible lineup for OM on Wednesday night: Lopez – Mpemba, Bailly, Balerdi (or Gigote) – Klaus, Roengir, Feritot, Tavares – Guendouzi, Harriet – Sanchez.

Tudor on Portuguese football

After Benfica and Porto they have a level Gorgeous and Braga shows.”

A crucial match already against Sporting?

Tavares on Sporting

The group with Klaus and Jujuenzi
Olympique de Marseille travels to Lisbon with Klaus and Juguendi. Doubts persisted about the players even though the trend was positive. Nothing to report on the other side of Marseille. Sead Kolasinac is absent, as is the unqualified Bamba Dieng. No last minute injuries. OM will play almost in full force its crucial game against Sporting on Wednesday.
Guendouzi and Clauss train
Matteo Guendouzi and Jonathan Claus participated in the Marseille training session on Tuesday on the eve of the flight to face Sporting there on Wednesday (9pm, on RMC Sport). Both players are expected to be on the team, although that will depend on how Klaus feels. The latter injured his hamstring last week against the Portuguese but looks (on the verge of) already recovering. The return of Guendouzi, who took a hit a week ago, doesn’t make him doubt it.
The only absentee must be Sead Kolasinac. (FGe)
