Dimitri Payet (OM) should start on the bench against Lyon

After his mea culpa in press conference on the non-entry of Dimitri Payet against Tottenham on Tuesday in the Champions League (1-2), Igor Tudor should not make the Reunionese a holder against Lyon on Sunday (8:45 p.m.). During Saturday’s set-up, the attacking midfielder was with the substitutes.

In an interview for Prime Video broadcast Sunday at 7 p.m., Payet acknowledged that the situation was becoming urgent. “If the bad results last, we will end up getting seriously into this crisis, admitted the Olympian captain. When the head doesn’t respond, the legs don’t follow either. » To revitalize his attack, his coach will probably do without him, but the Croatian technician is clearly wondering about his starting lineup and not just in front.

Training tests

Contrary to his habit, Igor Tudor tried several animations yesterday during the last training and confused the tracks. Up front, Bamba Dieng started among the starters, with Cengiz Ünder and Alexis Sanchez behind him. Seeing the Chilean start elsewhere than alone at the start would be a first this season. But during the opposition, Amine Harit replaced the Senegalese and Sanchez moved up a notch, which suggests that they are four for three positions in Tudor’s mind. In the middle and behind, the Marseille coach also tried several formulas, without Eric Bailly or Pape Gueye, injured and forfeited for this meeting against OL.
