In addition to Dimitri Payet, Arkadiusz Milik and Alvaro Gonzalez, OM will have to do without Duje Caleta-Car for the trip to Bordeaux on Sunday (9 p.m., 25th day of Ligue 1).
OM will still be deprived of its usual central hinge for the trip to Bordeaux on Sunday (9 p.m., 25th day of Ligue 1). As announced by RMC Sport on Thursday, Duje Caleta-Car will be forfeited for the match in Gironde, where the Marseillais have not won for more than 43 years (October 1, 1977) in the league. The Croatian international (10 caps) was preserved in Auxerre on Wednesday during the 32nd final of the Coupe de France (0-2) due to muscle discomfort felt at the start of the week.
He will miss a second game in a row. His absence is in addition to that of his partner in central defense, Alvaro Gonzalez, who was hit against PSG last week. Boubacar Kamara and Leonardo Balerdi could again be associated in the axis, as against the AJA.
Nasser Larguet will have to do without two other captains on Sunday. Dimitri Payet will be absent since the disciplinary committee of the LFP imposed two games of suspension on him following his red card against PSG. Forward Arkadiusz Milik is still grooming his thigh and will miss a third game in a row with his new side, which he joined this winter from Napoli. But the Pole is not far from a comeback.
Amavi’s big comeback
Jordan Amavi celebrated his this Friday morning. And it’s a small event. The left side participated in the collective session of the day and is getting closer to the resumption of competition. It will be too short for the match against Bordeaux. The former Niçois has not played since December 16, 2020 in Rennes (2-1) due to a calf injury.
Wednesday in Auxerre, Marseille ended a series of seven games without wins in all competitions. In Ligue 1, the Phocaeans remain in six games without a win and are in 9th place 18 points from the podium, but with two games behind.
