Which eleven against Rennes?

Tomorrow evening at 9:00 p.m., Olympique de Marseille will travel to the lawn of Rennes for the 37th day. Which team will be lined up by Jorge Sampaoli against Rennes?

For his trip to Rennes, Jorge Sampaoli will still have to do without the services of Balerdi, Konrad, Alvaro but also Dimitri Payet, victim of a muscle injury against Feyenoord. In addition to the Reunionese, Bakambu is very uncertain for this capital trip. On the other hand, several players should make their return.

Indeed, Milik and Harit, injured against Feyenoord, will be in the group. This should also be the case for Gerson, DCC and Dieng who could not finish the match against Lorient last Sunday.

Gerson on the left?

Steve Mandanda should finish the season, the goalkeeper is in good shape and Sampaoli explained that his experience was invaluable in the absence of Payet. In front of him, Saliba will be aligned, he will be suspended during the last match against Strasbourg. He should be accompanied by Caleta-Car, Luan Peres on the left and Rongier on the right.

In midfield, Guendouzi will start after a week of rest, he should be accompanied by Kamara and Gueye if Gerson plays higher. Up front, Milik could start on the bench, Bamba Diend could be the striker if he is 100%. Under, author of a good match in Lorient, should be confirmed, Gerson could play him as a false left winger unless Harit can start this match.

“The game against Feyenoord can help us. You have to see how we were able to dominate and neutralize Rennes in the first leg. They are a very strong team in the final meters. They have several parts of the pitch where they are very interesting, especially with the full-backs who can play very deep. (…) We have to manage to push them back as far as possible from our surface. It will be a very difficult match, but also decisive for the club. Jorge Sampaoli – Source: Press conference (05/12/2022)
