In order to win two Ligue 1 matches, the Olympique Marseille team was led by Gennaro Gattuso, who also won a successful match against Strasbourg on the same day.
The defeat against RC Lens before the international break (1-0) affected OM, especially in terms of statistics. Currently in the middle of the table after a difficult start to the season, the Marseille players are only four points ahead of the relegation zone, while the podium is now one point away. There is no reaction in Alsace.
The Strasbourg side are not in good hands, the team led by Patrick still has a record of its victory in September, for three matches without problems and four defeats. For this meeting, the visitors will be able to count on the return of Azzedine Ounahi, after a moment of absence.
A reinforcement in midfield
Indeed, according to information from CMR And France Blue Provence, the midfielder returned to collective training this Wednesday. Then you are absent due to a back injury suffered at home, the old boy from Angers will therefore be part of the group which will go to Strasbourg, barring any last minute unforeseen circumstances.

An additional solution in midfield for Gennaro Gattuso, who looks good in the injury of Valentin Rongier (until February 2024) and in the suspension of Pape Gueye (who returned on Wednesday for the match in Lorient). It is likely that the Moroccan title will kick off the match. The Marseille instructor should renew the duo Geoffrey Kondogbia – Jordan Veretout.
As a reminder, Azzedine Ounahi, unhappy with his playing time, would be open to leaving OM during the next winter transfer window. The semi-finalist of the last World Cup should not be retained by his club if a double-digit offer arises.
