“Me, the physical argument, I have a little trouble. If OM are tired after seven weeks of competition and eight games, what will it be like for the rest of the season? (…) I am worried because I saw other deficiencies and I especially saw Lens supporting where it hurts on the side of OM, especially behind the back of the lane players since he does not there are no sidelites. (…) Lens also pressed on the impact in the middle and they did a lot of damage. They took advantage of the mobility problems of the central defense. I have the impression that it is more a problem linked to the opponent who has had the weapons to put you in difficulty on a little weaker points in this system ”, explained the consultant of RMC Sport. Olympique de Marseille will follow up with a big meeting. Dimitri Payet’s teammates host Galatasaray in the Europa League on Thursday.
