The Olympians receive the Canary Islands tonight (9:00 p.m.) on behalf of the third day of Ligue 1
The pre-season has been hectic in the Commanderie and OM is approaching this third day of the championship. with many new faces. Coach Igor Tudor, the ten new signings and the survivors of the Sampaoli era receive Nantes at the Vélodrome this afternoon.
But the Canaries, classified in the Europa League, are also experiencing an uncertain preseason. Still, FC Nantes (13th), who conceded two draws in the first two matchdays, are a solid team that should pose problems for Marseille’s attack.
Bamba Dieng absent from the group
It will soon become a habit, at least until the end of the transfer window. Kicked out by his management for several weeks, Bamba Dieng is still absent from the group. His name hasn’t been on a game sheet since the start of the season.
Payet is still replacing?
There is another who paid the price of the many arrivals in attack. Dimitri Payet is demoted and has only played 40 minutes since the start of the season. If last week he had reiterated his confidence in her, assuring that the meetings “It will be important this season“, Igor Tudor this time closed the hatches on the question of his captain.
still is, assures Valentin Rongier despite the double episode of the rejected bracelet. “I assure you that Dimitri is still so involved in the life of the group, he is the captain of our team, he takes his role very seriously. Now I know him, he is a competitor, I know he doesn’t like being on the bench. He does whatever it takes to get back. It is certain that we will need him and that he will help us this season as he did last year..”
Issa Kaboré is not here, Pau López is
arrived this weekThe young rookie who came from Manchester City to help Jonathan Clauss at right back is still missing. he was late for training group on Friday night after having started indoors, together with Alexis Sánchez.
The Chilean star is very present, as is Pau López, back after a PSOAS injury.

Defenders: Mbemba, Leg, Touré
Environments: Clauss, Guendouzi, Rongier, Tavares
Forward: Payet (ch.) or Veretout, Gerson, Milik
Replacements: Ngapandouetnbu (g), Blanco (g) – Balerdi, Caleta Car, Kolasinac, Kaboré, Veretout or Payet, Gueye, Ünder, Bakambu, Sanchez, Suarez

Eric Bailly is getting closer
Obviously, he is not in the group yet, but he could join soon. OM has reached an agreement with Manchester United for the loan with an almost mandatory option to buy Ivorian defender Éric Bailly (28 years old). But Olympic leaders are still negotiating the terms of the contract with their representatives.
home is better
Struggling at home for most of last season, OM bounced back at the end of the season. And it started at home in the most beautiful way 15 days ago against Reims. The Olympians have won 5 of their last 6 home games, as many as in the previous 14.
Opposite, the town of Nantes is not varnished far from its land. They have only won one of their last ten trips.
45,000 subscribers, a record
62,500 fans are expected at the Vélodrome tonight. Match sold out for the sixth time in a row. 45,000 of them should be subscribers. OM broke his record in this area.
Moussa Sissoko absent
He is the star signing of a very quiet FC Nantes in the transfer market this summer. Moussa Sissoko, European runner-up in 2016 (with the French team) and 2019 (with Tottenham), however, will not be here tonight. He injured his hamstring in training before the second day and is not recovered.
Guessand, son of the ASPTT
Born in Ajaccio, trained in Nice and loaned by the Gym to Nantes, Evann Guessand is not, however, unknown in Marseille. In fact, he was fired from the ASPTT by Jean-Pierre Givone and Jean-François Verlaque, aged 7 to 13, before being detected by the Aiglons. Promising hope, the Franco-Ivorian will try to make his way this season at FCN, where he currently has the confidence of Antoine Kombouaré (started during the Champions Trophy against Paris and Angers, entered during the match against Lille). He should start tonight at the Vélodrome.
Blas must be the owner
Although his move to Lille was on the right track, Ludovic Blas has been blocked for a week by FC Nantes and Antoine Kombouaré, who have no desire for him to leave the club. Not very satisfied with this setback, it is still announced that the midfielder will be the starter tonight.
