Monday (19.00) OM travels to Montpellier on behalf of the 17th day of Ligue 1. A match shakes for the Olympians, who in case of victory could chain four successes in a row and settle permanently on the podium. The Montpellier residents, for their part, are coming off a convincing win in Lorient, but the coach Romain Piteau expect another level of adversity against Marseille:
“It’s a confident team that just had a hit against Toulouse. They will come here with their weapons, but we also have weapons to show. We expect an intense game in terms of energy, because that’s the style of OM this. season is a strong game. They perform well in transition, with aggression on the carrier, and when they manage to settle in the opposition camp, they have attacking players with the talent to make a difference.”.
Another fear on the part of Montpellier: the presence of many OM fans in the stands, knowing that the Olympic club is very supported in Hérault. “We know that there are OM supporters all over France and we cannot prevent that, recognizes Pitau. On the other hand, I know that our supporters will be there and that the stadium will be with us. I have no doubt about that.”.
