Jorge Sampaoli is seriously suspicious of ASSE
The clash between ASSE and Olympique de Marseille is scheduled this Saturday evening in Marseille. During the pre-match press conference, Jorge Sampaoli did not hide his fear of the Saint-Etienne club. He openly distrusts Claude Puel’s team. “AS Saint-Étienne is a team that remains competitive and very combative throughout the game. It is a formation which tries a lot of things in front of the goals. Sainté is one of the teams that shot the most. It’s going to be a very interesting game, ”said the Olympiens coach, in remarks transcribed by om.fr. To avoid falling into the trap of the Ligériens, Jorge Sampaoli has the solution. “You have to be focused for 90 minutes. We will try to control the game with our speed, but we will have to be careful of the blocks, ”he asked his players.
Sainté on a series of 2 victories in Ligue 1 against OM
As a reminder, ASSE inflicted two defeats on OM last season in the league. Either (2-0) at the Vélodrome, during the first leg and (1-0) at the Geoffroy-Guichard stadium on the return. The Marseillais, however, inflicted a defeat on the Stéphanois (2-1) in Guegnon, on July 28, in a friendly match, during the summer preparation. In the last six confrontations between the two clubs in Ligue 1, there is parity, ie 3 victories for the Greens and as many for the Sky and Blue. Before the match between them, ASSE is 11th with 3 points, while OM is in 8th place with 4 points, in the general classification.
