André Villas-Boas’s team will play seven matches in January, starting with the reception of Montpellier next Wednesday. OM, in reaction mode, will play big at the start of the year.
Wishes are quickly found for theOlympic Marseille. Before wishing them to end the season like the previous one, in a position of qualified for the next Champions League, Ciel et Blanc supporters strongly hope that their favorites will start 2021 with other arrangements.
With a small point taken in the last three Ligue 1 matches played in 2020, there is an urgent need for the training of André Villas-Boas to break the series, so as not to be left behind by the top three led by Lyon (1er) and Lille (2e), the next PSG at a length. OM are eight lengths behind OL, admittedly with two games late, and the schedule that awaits it poses at least one question.
Will Steve Mandanda and his comrades have the ability to raise a level of play that appeared barely average against Rennes (2-1), against Reims (1-1) and Angers (2-1)? As the Olympian captain and goalkeeper said after the loss to SCO on December 23, the priority during the break will be to get a good rest.
Next Wednesday, OM will host Montpellier, one point behind in the standings, on behalf of the 18the Ligue 1 day, before facing Dijon, PSG (Champions Trophy), Nîmes, Lens (late match), Monaco and Rennes. That is to say seven meetings in 25 days. It will indeed be able to chain efforts with winning as the main obsession.
