Friday would see Olympic Marseille lock antlers with Angers as they once again, strive for league glory; having seen a side of this fixture enjoy points and the other, a defeaning defeat in time past. Matchday 7 promises resilience from a side that is hungry for the third streak of consecutive victory, and another that may want to return to winning ways.
With Eight (8) points from Eight games, Les Scoistes retrograde in 14th place on the League standings. However, they may have found a rhythm in their style of play, having bagged two wins in the last two matches against Montpellier and OGC Nice respectively.
Having secured a win, a draw, and two losses at home, we may see the home side fighting to their teeth to prevent Igor Tudor’s side from clinching another victory.
The team suffer setbacks from the unavailability of three players. Two from injuries viz: Ulrick Brad Eneme-Ella (Knee Injury), Lois Diony (Cruciate Ligament Injury), and an indirect red-card suspension. (Sofiane Boufal).
As they stay two points over the relegation zone, a win would likely help re-ignite Gerard Baticle’s much-coveted 3-game winning streak, which was cut short by the unexpected CoronaVirus Pandemic last year.
Tentative Lineup (Subject to change):Fonfana (GK); Varley (LB); Hountondji (CB), Blazic (CB); Doumbia (RB); Mendy (LM); Bentaleb (CM); Ounahi (RM); Hunou (SS); Boufal (SS); Sima (CF);
Coach: Gerard Baticle

Olympic Marseille (2nd)
Having lost to Tottenham and Eintracht Frankfurt in the Champions League Group games, Les Olympiens return to base and share spoils with Rennes in an encounter that ended in an unfortunate draw, as the toll of the competition was evident in the style of gameplay exhibited, with Mateo Guendouzi scoring two significant goals in the match, One for his opponents, and one for his team.
With the defense of Angers at the mercy of Alexis Sanchez and his minions, Igor Tudor may give Gerard Baticle hell on the pitch; truncating what little expectations they may bring to the pitch, irrespective of the home advantage they may possess.
Ahead of Friday’s game, the team sees Eric Baily out of play as he suffers an injury to his thigh.
Tentative Lineup (Subject to change): Lopez (GK); Gigot (RB), Mbemba (CB); Balerdi (CB); Clauss (LB); Rongler (DMF); Veretout (DMF) Guenduszi (RWF); Gerson (RWF) A.Sanchez (CF)
Coach: Igor Tudor
Formation: 4 -2 -3
