Tonight, Olympique de Marseille and AS Saint-Étienne are attacking the penultimate match of their preparation at the Jean-Laville stadium (Gueugnon), before launching their championship on August 8. Jorge Sampaoli for his part continues to refine his eleven and his system over the matches and arrivals, but always with a three-way defense. Steve Mandanda is the last bulwark, protected by Leonardo Balerdi, William Saliba and Jordan Amavi. In the middle, Mattéo Guendouzi, Gerson and Valentin Rongier are surrounded by Nemanja Radonjic and Konrad de la Fuente.
In front, Darío Benedetto is associated with Dimitri Payet. Boubacar Kamara and Duje Caleta-Car are not in the group (Covid-19). Arkadiusz Milikk, absent because still injured, could resume training on August 1. Opposite, Claude Puel lines up a 4-3-3 with Etienne Green in goal. Yvann Maçon, Harold Moukoudi, Timothée Kolodziejczak and Gabriel Silva are ahead of him, while Zaydou Youssouf, Mahdi Camara and Yvan Neyou constitute the Saint-Etienne milieu. Charles Abi accompanies Wahbi Khazri and Adil Aouchiche in attack.
