At the end of the 14th day of Ligue 1, Olympique Lyonnais welcomed OM to Groupama Stadium. On the Rhone side, we wanted to get our heads right after the slap received in Rennes (4-1) before the international break. Held in check at the Orange Vélodrome by Metz (0-0) before the break, Olympique de Marseille was clearly aiming for success tonight to resume its forward march. For this shock of 8:45 p.m., Peter Bosz relied on a 4-2-3-1 with the only Paqueta in the lead. Jorge Sampaoli aligned a 3-4-2-1 with Milik at the forefront of the Marseille attack.
