LIVE – OM: the probable composition against Sporting, without Payet

The probable composition of OM against Sporting

Igor Tudor appreciated the Guendouzi-Veretout duo in midfield at Angers. Therefore, he should renew the experience and line up Mattéo Guendouzi again one step lower than usual this season. Veretout and Rongier are in the balance to accompany him, but the former Roma player holds the rope.

This would leave room for a more offensive trident up front, in which Cengiz Under is expected to accompany Amine Harit and Alexis Sánchez.

Preserved on Friday after a muscle injury, Eric Bailly must return. If he felt the slightest bit of discomfort at the last minute, Samuel Gigot would complete the defensive trio, in which Leonardo Balerdi is likely to renew.

The probable composition of OM: López – Mbemba, Balerdi, Bailly (or Gigot) – Clauss, Guendouzi, Veretout (or Rongier), Nuno Tavares – Bajo, Sánchez, Harit.
