After two draws in two games, Olympique de Marseille is moving to the lawn of Lazio Rome in the Europa League this Thursday with the obligation to achieve a result. At the same time, Lyon and Monaco, rather well started, must continue against Sparta Prague and PSV Eindhoven.
The Marseillais are expected in this match.
After Paris Saint-Germain, winner of RB Leipzig (3-2) on Tuesday, and Lille, hooked by FC Sville (0-0) on Wednesday, in the Champions League, European competitions continue this Thursday for the Ligue 1 teams with Matchday 3 of the Europa League group stage.
Among the most anticipated matches, we obviously find the visit of Olympique de Marseille to Lazio Rome from 6:45 p.m.
Marseille, a mandatory result!
It’s simple, Olympique de Marseille is almost forced to win. In any case, defeat is not an option after a sluggish start to the campaign and two draws in two games against Lokomotiv Moscow (1-1) and Galatasaray (0-0). We have two finals to play against Lazio. We’re going to play a great game and that’s extra motivation. We will approach it in the same way as during the first two meetings against Lokomotiv Moscow and Galatasaray. We will try to reverse the trendwarned phocen coach Jorge Sampaoli at a press conference.
Problem, Lazio also needs to win! Beaten by Galatasaray (0-1), the Italian club managed to revive in this group E when they received Lokomotiv (2-0). And above all, after an irregular start to the season, the current 5th in Serie A is doing better with, in particular, a convincing success against Inter Milan (3-1) on Saturday. Suffice to say that this is a big challenge for the Marseillais, before receiving PSG on Sunday in L1, against the men of Maurizio Sarri.
The composition of the two teams:
Lazio-Roma:Strakosha – Lazzari, Luiz Felipe, Acerbi, Marusic – Milinkovic-Savic, Cataldi, Basic – Felipe Anderson, Immobile (c), Zaccagni.
Olympic Marseille :Lopez – Saliba, Caleta-Car, Peres – Rongier, Kamara, Guendouzi – nder, Payet (c), Lirola – Milik.
OL can make the hole, Monaco face their competitor
For its part, Lyon will challenge Sparta Prague in the Czech Republic at 9 p.m. But unlike OM, OL can travel serenely after two victories against Glasgow Rangers (2-0) and Brondby (3-0). At the head of group A, the Gones can also take a good option on qualification by dominating the Czechs, currently in 2nd place with 2 points behind.
We won the first two, we are here to try to win too. We will do everything for. Sparta are a team that aren’t afraid to play from behind, and they run a lot. She plays the transitions very well, and is not afraid to press forward. It’s a team that wants to play, it’s interesting, estimated the Rhone technician Peter Bosz. On a good dynamic (1 defeat in the last 9 games), OL advance with certainty to challenge the current 2nd in the Czech championship, who had been beaten by Monaco (0-2, 1-3) in round C1 qualifier.
The probable composition of the two teams:
Sparta Prague: Nita – Wiesner, Panak, Celustka, Hancko – Pavelka (c), Sacek – Pesek, Dockal, Haraslin – Hlozek.
Olympique Lyonnais: Lopes – Dubois (c), Boateng, Denayer, Emerson – Guimaraes, Mendes – Shaqiri, Aouar, Kadewere – Paqueta.
And precisely, the ASM also has a good poster to play on the ground of PSV Eindhoven. In this pool B, the two teams occupy the first two places with 4 points in 2 games. Suffice to say that the eventual winner of this match can carry out a very fine operation with a view to qualifying. obviously after a defeat in the league, it’s always important to bounce back and regain victory. But on Thursday we will face PSV Eindhoven, a very big club in the Dutch championship. So it’s going to be a tough match against a great team, especially away from home. Both teams will try everything to win this game. We hope that we will be able to bring back a resultconfided the Mongasque coach Niko Kovac.
After Lyon’s defeat (0-2) in the league, Monaco will try to react, but PSV, 2nd in the Eredivisie standings 1 point behind Ajax Amsterdam, have made a good start to the season and therefore represent a tough opponent. Three complicated away games for the French teams, but three great opportunities to see further in this competition!
The probable composition of the two teams:
PSV Eindhoven: Drommel – Mwene, Ramalho, Obispo, Max – van Ginkel (c), Boscagli – Madueke, Gtze, Gakpo – Zahavi.
AS Monaco: Nbel – Aguilar, Maripan, Pavlovic, Henrique – Diop, Tchouamni, Fofana, Jakobs – Ben Yedder (c), Boadu.
