Before the great European challenge that awaits OM against Atalanta Bergamo, this Thursday evening in the semi-final first leg of the Europa League (9 p.m.), Jean-Louis Gasset expressed the wish to live up to a Vélodrome which promises to be hot.

OM wants to treat themselves to another evening of intoxication. Opposed to Atalanta Bergamo this Thursday evening in the semi-final first leg of the Europa League (9 p.m.), the Marseille club wants to do everything to get closer to a European final, on May 22 in Dublin.

During this first round, OM will be able to count on the support of a Vélodrome which promises to be incandescent. “We feel it all around us. There is a special enthusiasm, there is going to be a crazy stadium. So let’s live up to the event”, proclaimed Jean-Louis Gasset at the microphone of RMC Sport, this Thursday evening.

“Do whatever it takes to foil the plans”

“We are calm. We know what we did,” continued the Olympian coach. “We eliminated good opponents, but then the tone rose. We have to raise the cursor. The players know that it is a tactic which is very trying but very difficult to play. We have to do what is necessary to thwart the plans.”

For this match at the top, Gasset and his staff can count on the return of Chancel Mbemba. Absent during the last three meetings (Toulouse, Nice, Lens) due to knee pain, the Congolese started in a three-way defense alongside Leonardo Balerdi and Amir Murillo. Up front, it was Ismaila Sarr who was chosen to accompany Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the attacking front. The Senegalese, injured during the last international break, will experience his first start since March 17.
