Unbeaten at home against OM for more than 43 years, Bordeaux welcomes OM this Sunday evening at the end of the 25th day of Ligue 1. The Marseillais who will appear without many executives and with Olivier Ntcham on the bench.
Will OM finally succeed in defeating the curse of travel in Gironde? A real bête noire of the Marseillais, Bordeaux has never lost against OM for more than 43 years. To make matters worse, it is a club in crisis and deprived of many holders who will present themselves this Sunday evening at Matmut Atlantique at the end of the 25th day of Ligue 1. The Marseille coach Nasser Larguet must compose without Arkadiusz Milik, Duje Caleta -Car, Alvaro Gonzalez (injured), Hiroki Sakai (sick) or Dimitri Payet (suspended).
Amavi on the bench
To compose his team in 4-3-3, the Marseille coach therefore had few solutions. He preferred to start Michaël Cuisance in the middle rather than the winter rookie Olivier Ntcham, on the bench at kickoff. Jordan Amavi, back from injury, is also a replacement. In attack, Florian Thauvin will be supported by Valère Germain and Dario Benedetto.
On the Bordeaux side, the former Niçois Jean-Michaël Seri holds for the first time in Ligue 1 with the Girondins. Nicolas De Préville is a replacement. Before the start of this poster, OM, 10th, has one point more than Bordeaux, its first pursuer.
