Sampaoli: “Having a 100% team”
On Amazon Ligue 1, Sampaoli justified his choice to bring some new blood to his team for this crucial match of the championship … but he got stuck between the first leg and the second leg of the Conference League semi-final. “We needed a 100% team after the match against Feyenoord, especially for Guendouzi who has accumulated a lot of playing time. For this Olympico we hope to be able to take advantage of this moment of joy with the public (in the event of Payet’s 100th goal in L1) “
Bosz: Barcola is “a great talent”
The OL coach spoke to the Amazon Ligue 1 microphone on his choices this evening, in particular Barcola’s stay on the right wing. “We are fine. But the answer will really be after the game, because she will be on the pitch. Anthony (Lopes) got injured, missed 5 games. He trained this week, it went well. Lucas (Paqueta) will go to play as midfielder. (Barcola) has done well a few times, he trained very well and he is a great talent in my opinion. Tonight he can prove it. “
Guendouzi returns to the bench
It is the first time since mid-December that Mattéo Guendouzi has started a league match on the bench. It was during the 18th matchday, against Strasbourg. It had only happened once this season in L1, against the SCO on day 7.
