OL: A rouste for the Marseillais who are reviving the Lyonnais for Europe…

Good evening and welcome to 20 Minutes to follow the poster for the 34th day of Ligue 1, this “Olympico” between OM and OL, in a sold-out Vélodrome stadium. A radically different season for the Marseillais and the Lyonnais but an oh so important match for the end of the championship. Jorge Sampaoli’s players have the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone, if they beat their rivals, by regaining a six-point lead over Rennes, 3rd, but above all by pushing the Lyonnais a little further out of the race to Europe. A tasty challenge for the band at Payet, after a defeat in the first leg (2-1), which had left its mark in the following matches. And especially a few days from finding Feyenoord Rotterdam in the semi-final return of the Europa League, after their narrow defeat in the Netherlands (3-2).

On the Lyonnais side, it’s simple, a new defeat in this up and down season would be synonymous with the end of the season or almost, since Europe would become almost unreachable. But they can count on the return of several executives like Anthony Lopes, Tanguy Ndombélé or Léo Dubois.
