Olympique de Marseille is hosting this Sunday at the Stade Vélodrome, from 3 p.m., as part of the 8th day of Ligue 1. TV channel, probable line-ups… Here is the information you need to know about the match.
The context of OM-Rennes
Dominating in Ligue 1, Olympique de Marseille, 2nd in the championship standings, has more difficulty in Europe. The Marseille club lost for the second time in a row in the Champions League, against Frankfurt, on Tuesday. At the Vélodrome, against Rennes, OM will try to revive, while the Breton club, also European, comes out of a 2-2 draw against Fenerbahçe, Thursday, in the Europa League. Further back in the standings, Rennes is 6th in Ligue 1 and hopes to catch up on OM by taking the three points this Sunday. Note the return of Steve Mandanda to the Vélodrome in a different jersey to that of OM, after fourteen seasons at the club.
The probable line-ups of OM-Rennes
The only notable absentee on the OM side is Eric Bailly. The Ivorian defender was injured this week in the Champions League, against Eintracht Frankfurt (0-1). Suspended against the German club, Chancel Mbemba should return to the eleven, with Samuel Gigot and Leonardo Balerdi at his side. In the other sectors of the field, many doubts surround the identity of the players established just before the international break. Dimitri Payet could be holder and captain, according to The Team.
