European Cup: OM and OL must confirm, ASM and Rennes condemned to the feat … Presentation and probable compositions

After victories in the first leg, Olympique de Marseille and Olympique Lyonnais must respectively secure against Basel, in the Europa League Conference, and Porto, in the Europa League. Beaten in the first round, Monaco and Rennes are forced to overthrow Braga, in C3, and Leicester, in C4.

The Marseillais have the advantage against Ble.

The Champions League is over for French clubs! After the elimination of Paris Saint-Germain and Lille in C1, the French hopes on the European scene are in the Europa League and the Europa League Conference.

This Thursday, 4 Ligue 1 teams, namely Lyon, Monaco, Marseille and Rennes, will try to appear in the Top 8 in C3 and C4.

Marseille and Lyon, it’s off to a good start

Largely dominating but only victorious (2-1) in the first leg at the Vlodrome, Olympique de Marseille moves onto the lawn of FC Ble from 6:45 p.m. Without Dimitri Payet, suspended, the Marseille club must confirm the attractive face shown in Brest (4-1) on Sunday in L1 to qualify for the quarter-finals of the LEC, but also prepare for the clash against Nice.

We prepared for this week first of all thinking about Thursday’s match, but also having in mind the match against Nice on Sunday. The tactics and the course of Thursday’s match remain the priority but, I repeat, thinking all the same of the Nice match so as not to arrive too worn out on Sunday with the same players, said Marseille coach Jorge Sampaoli to the press. Despite this speech, the Argentinian should field a competitive team.

The probable composition of the two teams:

Wheat : Lindner – Lang, Frei (c), Pelmard, Katterbach – Ndoye, Xhaka, Kasami, Millar – Chalov, Esposito.

Marseilles: Mandanda (c) – Lirola, Saliba, Caleta-Car, Kolasinac – Guendouzi, Kamara, Gueye – nder, Milik, Harit.

At 9 p.m., Lyon receives FC Porto at Groupama Stadium in the round of 16 second leg of the LE. After a superb victory (1-0) in Portugal, the Gones find themselves in a favorable tie. And despite the slap received in L1 against Rennes (2-4) on Sunday, the Rhone club has certainties this season in Europe with a nice run so far.

You talk to me about Rennes, but I can also tell you about the Porto match a week ago. We played against a very good team and we won there. has given us confidence, even if we don’t close our eyes to what happened this weekend, commented Lyon coach Peter Bosz. Simply deprived of Jrme Boateng, Sinaly Diomand and Rayan Cherki, the Dutchman should line up his typical team of the moment.

The probable composition of the two teams:

Lyons: Lopes – Dubois (c), Lukeba, Mendes, Emerson – Caqueret, Ndombl – Faivre, Paqueta, Toko-Ekambi – Dembl.

Porto: Costa – Sanusi, Pepe (c), Mbemba, Uribe – Costa, Grujic, Galeno, Taremi – Pep, Martinez.

Monaco and Rennes, the feat or the door

Unlike OM and OL, AS Monaco will have to reverse a delicate situation against Braga at the Stade Louis II at 6:45 p.m. Beaten (0-2) in the first leg, the Mongasques are going through a complicated period with a loss to Strasbourg (0-1) on Sunday in L1. In difficulty in the race for Europe in the league, ASM must relaunch in the Europa League.

It’s true that we have to score at least two goals, but we have to stay balanced. We can’t go forward with the whole team. But, whatever it is, we are still a team that plays offensively. So it won’t change much. But it will be a special game. I feel a lot of envy in the locker roomassured coach Philippe Clement, who will have to compose without Cesc Fabregas and Krpin Diatta, injured.

The probable composition of the two teams:

AS Monaco: Nbel – Vanderson, Maripan, Badiashile, Henrique – Lucas, Tchouamni, Fofana, Martins – Volland, Ben Yedder (c).

Braga: Magalhaes – Silva, Carmo, Vitor – Couto, Al Musrati, Horta, Gomes – Medeiros, Ruiz, Horta (c).

In the Europa League Conference, Rennes finds itself in a similar scenario. After a raging defeat (0-2) in England, the Breton club was condemned to the feat at 6:45 p.m. against Leicester at Roazhon Park. But unlike the Mongasques, the Rennais can rely on a positive dynamic in L1 to approach this meeting with confidence.

This evening can change the history of the club a little bit. We must already all be convinced that it is possible. This is our case. We know that we will do it, we are convinced that we will do it, said coach Bruno Gnsio. Despite many absences (Alfred Gomis, Romain Salin, Loc Bad, Jrmy Glin, Jrmy Doku and Kamaldeen Sulemana), the Bretons dream of a great comeback.

The probable composition of the two teams:

Reindeer: Alemdar – Traor (c), Omari, Aguerd, Truffert – Santamaria, Martin, Majer – Bourigeaud, Laborde, Terrier.

Leicester: Schmeichel (c) – Pereira, Amartey, Sync, Thomas – Tielemans, Ndidi, Dewsbury-Hall – Albrighton, Daka, Barnes.
