Complete OM, Stade Rennais has a plan

OM will face Stade Rennais this Sunday evening in Ligue 1. The Bretons intend to press where it hurts for the Phocaeans.

Nothing has been going well at OM for a few days. Igor Tudor’s men have just had two straight losses against PSG and Annecy. Enough to plunge the Phocaeans into crisis and the most total uncertainty before the end of the season. Because OM’s main objective now remains to finish on the podium. And the latter is threatened. The competition is fierce and Marseille will have a huge shock to manage this Sunday evening on the lawn of Stade Rennais. The Bretons, who also aspire to finish their season well, want to press on the faults of the Tudor team. And Bruno Genesio made no secret of it at a press conference.

Rennes awaits OM firmly

Indeed, the Stade Rennais coach gave part of the plan he was going to put in place to try to hurt the Marseille team. It’s a team that puts a lot of intensity on pressing, counter-pressing, very often with individual marking. Inevitably there are spaces that are released. (…) Obviously that is one of the things that will have to be exploited, but it will also be necessary to be able to have control, and to be able to settle in their camp to make them run and not to give the ball up too easily because they are a team that wins a lot of duels, puts a lot of intensity and puts a lot of wave pressure on you. At some point, you also have to be able to impose something else on them,” in particular indicated Bruno Genesio, convinced that a nice blow is to be played against Marseilles in loss of confidence. Be careful all the same with the reaction of the men of Igor Tudor, who have weighty arguments to put forward against the Bretons who are also worrying on a few occasions this season.
