A single recruit absent in Marseille
Unlike the Parisians, OM will be able to count on six of its seven summer arrivals against Braga (9 p.m.). Jorge Sampaoli was able to summon Matteo Guendouzi, William Saliba and Luan Peres for the first time, while Gerson, Cengiz Ünder and Konrad De la Fuente were already present against Servette de Genève in Fos-sur-Mer last Thursday (3-1) . Guendouzi, who arrived on loan from Arsenal, has therefore recovered from his fractured fifth metatarsus contracted with Hertha Berlin at the end of last season. Only missing among the new: Pau Lopez, the new goalkeeper arrived from AS Roma, who will not fly with his teammates to Portugal.
Jorge Sampaoli will therefore be able to count on an already almost complete workforce when it comes to playing his fourth preparation match, and trying to bring back a fourth victory. Victorious against Martigues (3-0, July 4), Sète (2-1, 11) and Servette (3-1, 15), the Marseille club shows interesting things despite the significant contribution of new blood. Sometimes still a little fragile in its organization, the recruits brought real added value against the Genevans. Gerson opened the scoring while De la Fuente was decisive double assist at the end of the game for Dario Benedetto. The Argentine striker could well start this Wednesday on the lawn of the Estadio Axa.
