LOSC: goalscorer Victor Osimhen is operational for the shock against Marseille

"Victor trains normally, he does 100% of the sessions. He ended up with a cramp (in Angers). As he is a young player, he still discovers his body"said the northern technician at a press conference."He had felt pain a few minutes earlier and we had decided to replace him. And on his last action, he fell to the ground feeling a sharp pain, but it was just a cramp. Now he knows what it is …"Added Galtier.

Osimhen, top scorer of LOSC with 17 goals on the clock, including 12 in the league, should be aligned in attack with Loïc Rémy, currently in shape (5 goals in 2020, 11 in total), in a 4-4-2 system which has proven itself in the last three matches (victories in Strasbourg, against reindeer and in Angers).

9 points from OM

Lille, fourth in L1 at nine lengths from OM, dolphin of the untouchable Paris SG, must absolutely win on Sunday against the Phocaeans to continue dreaming of second place, synonymous with direct qualification for the next Champions League. "OM remains on an impressive series of number of points taken. If you want to fight to catch them, it is important to reduce the point spread on a direct confrontation. They have the advantage of points ahead, if we want to hope to go tickle them we will have to beat them", underlined Galtier.

The Lille coach, who will be deprived of three suspended players, central defender Gabriel and the midfielders Benjamin André and Xeka, calmly addresses the shock of Sunday. "Having won the last three matches, it gives us the opportunity to prepare for this match in good physical conditions and in good psychological conditions, he said. It will be difficult but we will play without pressure."
