Surprise in the Olympic attack, Dieng preferred Milik

As announced by L’Equipe and confirmed by RMC Sport, the young Senegalese striker should start the match alongside Payet and Harit. Milik, who was already a substitute at the start of the first round, will therefore sit on the bench.

In addition, a tactical adjustment to counter Feyenoord cannot be ruled out.

Incidents at the fan zone with Dutch fans

The last five buses chartered by the RTM left the Prado fan zone around 6 p.m. The rain increased enormously and this caused some unrest. The Dutch supporters, without any shelter, wanted to leave the hall and took down the fences that demarcate the fan zone. A minority group tried to send bottles of alcohol and smoke bombs to the police. They responded to disperse the crowd.

In fact, Feyenoord’s supporters are now under sheltered buildings on the Prado roundabout, between Avenue du Prado and Avenue Pierre Mendes France. Dutch supporters have been advised not to walk to the stadium, because supporters may be waiting for them. They are now surrounded by the police.

A heavy downpour Marseille

It is currently raining in torrents in Marseille. The Prado shopping center has closed its gates to prevent everyone from having to find shelter. Despite everything, the supporters continue to show their elan a few hours before the game.

Regroup Dutch supporters

At 4.30 pm, 2,150 Dutch supporters gather in the fan zone, without reporting any incidents for the time being. As a reminder, these are buses and shuttles that normally carry supporters to the stadium. The Dutch wanted to go in procession to the Velodrome, but this idea was rejected by the authorities.


Close the north bend, replace supporters

“Allez l’OM” is displayed at the bottom of the north turn, which will be closed tonight. A partial camera coming after the match against PAOK Saloniki. The message is soft to mark the occasion, even as OM and Steve Mandanda hope to win the coin toss (heads or tails) to attack in the second period facing the south corner.

Note that several thousand supporters are usually placed in the north bend (Fanatics, Mtp, Dodgers) at the top of La Tribune Ganay. Chants will also be heard on this large side stand.


Why Feyenoord is so concerned about its hooligans

The meeting is considered risky and is due to a radical crowd of Feyenoord supporters. Hooligans whose birth certificate dates back to a dispute with Tottenham and who have already experienced a chaotic journey in Europe.

The suspected composition of OM, with Milik who should start

A priori, Jorge Sampaoli should make few changes to his team composition compared to the first leg in Rotterdam. Unless surprise, Milik should start. Doubt remains between Dieng, who was able to bring speed as in the first leg, and Harit, whose ability to provoke and combine with the other attackers could prove invaluable.

OM’s likely eleven:

Mandanda – Rongier, Saliba, Caleta-Car, Luan Peres – Guendouzi Kamara, Gerson – Dieng (or Harit), Milik, Payet.
