Olympique Marseille: A confirmed absence for Marseille against Lyon!

For the clash between OM and OL, scheduled for Wednesday evening at the Vélodrome, Gennaro Gattuso will have to do without one of his key players in midfield.

This Wednesday evening, Olympique de Marseille and Olympique Lyonnais will meet at the Vélodrome stadium after the cancellation of the match on October 29th due to the bus being attacked, which caused a facial injury to Fabio Grosso. Coach Gennaro Gattuso and the players of OM have called for calm, as OL supporters are banned for this first Olympico of the season.

But for this duel against the Gones, the Phocéens will have to do without one of their key players. Absent from the last training session, Geoffrey Kondogbia will be too short to participate in this OM-OL match. L’Équipe ensures that the Central African midfielder is unavailable for this postponed match from the 10th round of Ligue 1. A delicate situation given the existing physical problems in the midfield. Nevertheless, Gennaro Gattuso has a significant reinforcement with the return of Pape Gueye.

Pape Gueye vying for a starting place

With Valentin Rongier out for several months, Jordan Veretout not yet at 100% of his physical capabilities, and Azzedine Ounahi unconvincing in midfield, Gennaro Gattuso could surprise by calling on Pape Gueye from the start of the match against Lyon. Having served a four-month suspension, the midfielder is finally available for the match against Lyon and is vying for a starting place.

This decision would be a risky gamble, but it could pay off for Gennaro Gattuso, who is looking to balance his midfield weakened by physical issues. In the meantime, Pape Gueye, the reigning African champion with Senegal, has confirmed his return to the OM group on his Instagram account and is looking forward to experiencing the unique atmosphere of the Vélodrome once again.
