The first competitive game of Olivier Dall’Oglio Era at Montpellier HSC takes place on Sunday when La Paillade against their Ligue 1 campaign. opened Marseille in the Stade de la Mosson.

The hosts reached eighth place under the guidance of Michel the Zakarian last term while taking the revival of Marseilles Jorge Sampaoli brought her to fifth place and a place in the Europa League.


Prediction for this match

The old guard has moved on, the Zakarian has now taken control of the reins in Brest, and Dall’Oglio has swapped Les Pirates for La Paillade in a kind of manager swap deal to bring them to the promised land of. bring back European football.

Dall’Oglio’s appointment, who gained a reputation for free-flowing attack performance during his time in Brest, should mark yet another achievement for the deadly double act of Andy Delort and Gaetan Laborde, but his Brest side finished the season with 64 goals conceded – the fourth worst in the league – and scored half a century on the right end of the field.

While Montpellier won a striking 2-1 win against RB Leipzig in the pre-season, the rest of their show time was nothing special, as La Paillade suffered trust-destroying defeats against Sete, Clermont and Metz in the summer.

La Paillade caused a stir with their eleven-game unbeaten league between February and April earlier this year, but far too many of those encounters ended in draws for them to seriously challenge Europe – something that brought Dall’Oglio into play.

Montpellier, who suffered only one defeat in their last seven home games last season, are also waiting for victorious duels against Reims and Lorient until the end of August, but Marseille’s younger squad are on the hunt for an early success.

To Andre Villas-Boas Leaving the club in dire circumstances, Sampaoli took on the task of taking over the Orange Velodrome and bringing Marseille back where they belong, even though the Europa League is not quite the continental competition that the club’s ardent fan base has been looking for.

It seemed for a short while that Marseille was going to miss European football completely, but Sampaoli – with its highly effective 3-4-3 system – managed to put together a consistent set of results to put Rennes and newly promoted Lens in fifth place to offset space in the table.

The summer of Les Olympiens was marked by a number of top-class additions – especially loans from the Arsenal duo William Saliba and Matteo Guendouzi, as well as permanent offers for Gerson and Conrad de la Fuente – and Marseille have also played seven pre-season games without a single defeat.

In the most recent of these encounters, Sampaoli’s men scored a 2-1 win against Europa League winners Villarreal – who had Juan Foyth Sent off that day – but optimism grows that this redesigned Marseille squad could be the one to bring Champions League football back to the south of France.

However, Marseille have only won one away win in their last 13 league games of the season and their last trip to the Stade de la Mosson against Montpellier ended in a thrilling 3-3 draw.

The defenses of the hosts are also due to the departures of Damien Le Tallec and Clemens Vidal, while Pedro Mendes Still recovering from a devastating cruciate ligament rupture, however, former Liverpool and Crystal Palace defenders Mamadou Sakho has signed on the dashed line.

Goalkeeper first choice Jonas Omlin is also out with the ankle problem that forced him to miss Euro 2020 while Teji Savanier is a big doubt after returning from the Olympics with a hip injury.

While Marseille’s new signings hit the headlines this summer, the club have also said goodbye to a large line-up of players, including Florian Thauvin, Valere Germain, Hiroki Sakai and Maxime Lopez.

Of the players who come to the club in the summer, Saliba, Guendouzi and Gerson have good chances of getting into the roles this weekend while Boubacar Kamara should be available after a coronavirus outbreak.

Probability: Montpellier HSC 1-3 Marseille

Although Marseille lost a proven goalscorer in Thauvin, Marseille are building something special and such positive pre-season results only increased optimism in Sampaoli’s ranks.

Delort and Laborde are capable of breaking almost every defense in France on their day but Dall’Oglio’s pre-season pre-season didn’t go according to plan and we can only support this new looking Marseille by having one dominant foot on the right foot get up success.
