A few hours before receiving Auxerre at the Stade Vélodrome, Marseille supporters believe in it with a shadow of a doubt for some.
“We will get there”
If there is a reason to believe it, according to Lucas, it is by reading the program of Olympique de Marseille for the next few weeks. OM will meet four more or less confirmed candidates for relegation. “The biggest have already passed so I think anything is possible. We’ll get there. I think the players are ready,” he says.
But be careful with this calendar precisely, warns Mattéo, who does not forget that OM have been surprised several times this season. “We’ve seen it this season, all games can be trapped. We’ll have to be careful with everyone. The teams are trying to maintain. We’re going to Lille, we’re going to Lens, it’s not going to be easy at all “, he judges at the microphone of Europe 1.
“Marseille will not crack”
Marseilles or Lens? What could possibly make the difference between these two contenders in this final stretch? Thierry has his idea. “The experience, the composition of the workforce, these are cutthroat matches. Last year, Lens had cracked at the end of the championship. We are not immune to them cracking Tuesday evening in Toulouse and against us. Marseille will not crack, not anymore”, affirms the supporter.
But be careful not to stumble on the first step since Auxerre remains on four matches without defeat.
