OM are traveling to Turkey to face Istanbul’s Galatasaray this Thursday, November 25, on Matchday 5 of the Europa League. Here is the full TV program.
The next game. OM found their way back to the field on Thursday evening with a perilous and very important trip for the rest of the adventure in the Europa League on the hot turf of Galatasaray. In Istanbul, Jorge Sampaoli’s men will try to find a taste for the game after what happened Sunday at the Groupama Stadium in Décines against OL when Dimitri Payet was the victim of a violent bottle throw on the header as he was about to take a corner kick after just four minutes of play.
It remains to be seen what will be the state of form of the Marseillais who were shocked by this incident which went back to the Elysee? If the Olympian captain is suspended for this trip to Turkey, the other players will have to get back on their feet to resist the boiling atmosphere of the Turks.
Especially since there is a European future to be secured during this trip. With four points in four games (4 draws), OM are treading water but still have one thing to qualify for the knockout stages of this C3. For this, Marseille must win its last two games. Against Galatasaray – who has just lost the Istanbul derby against Fenerbahçe (1-2) – therefore and at home against Lokomotiv Moscow. Otherwise, you will have to take out the calculators.
