OM with Balerdi on Tuesday against Eintracht Frankfurt in the Champions League

Three days after leaving the field at half an hour of play against Lille (2-1), Leonardo Balerdi will start against Eintracht Frankfurt, this Tuesday evening in the Champions League (9 p.m.). It was his trainer, Igor Tudor, who announced it at a press conference on Monday. “He didn’t leave because he played badly but because I was afraid he would be sent off. tomorrow (tuesday), he will hold. And I expect a positive reception from the public for this sensitive player who gives everything for the team and who is a great defender. »

An Alexis-Payet-Gerson trio in front, Guendouzi on the bench?

The Argentinian, who had let his frustration burst out when joining the bench even before half-time on Saturday evening, is not only back in the starting lineup to avoid overwhelming him further but also because the solutions are lacking in his post. For this second meeting of the group, the Croatian technician must do without Chancel Mbemba, excluded from Tottenham (0-2), while uncertainty still hangs over Samuel Gigot, exempt from training on Monday evening.

The defender suffers from a muscle problem in one thigh and the staff would not take any risks with him. Isaak Touré, not registered on the A list, not being qualified, there are therefore no other alternatives left to compose the defense of three dear to Tudor: Balerdi, Bailly and Kolasinac. In addition, Alexis Sanchez should be aligned at the forefront with Dimitri Payet and Gerson in support, probably preferred to Mattéo Guendouzi.
