This Thursday evening, OM hosts Galatasaray as part of the 2nd Europa League matchday. And 24 hours before this European meeting, good news has just fallen for the supporters of Olympique de Marseille. Arkadiusz Milik could make his first appearance of the season in the Phocaean jersey.
OM: Milik back in the group against Galatasaray
Beaten last weekend by RC Lens (3-2), OM has the opportunity to raise its head with the reception of Galatasaray on behalf of the 2nd matchday of Europa League. And for this meeting, the coach Jorge Sampaoli can count on two important returns. According to the information disclosed by The Team, Arkadiusz Milik should be part of the group of players retained by Sampaoli who will face the Turkish club this Thursday at the Velodrome.
Removed from the lawns since last May due to a serious knee injury, the Polish goalscorer has been back in collective training for several weeks. Until now, the medical staff of Olympique de Marseille did not want to take any risks for the 27-year-old. But according to information leaked by the sports daily, the Marseille medical staff finally judged Arkadiusz Milik fit for this match against Galatasaray. After more than four months of unavailability, the 27-year-old is preparing to make his big return to competition. However, the Polish goalscorer should not necessarily start the match against the Turks.
Boubacar Kamara operational
In addition, another injured makes his return in the group of Olympique de Marseille. Embarrassed to the thigh, Boubacar Kamara was forfeited in OM’s loss to RC Lens. The Marseille minot, much used by Jorge Sampaoli this season, has returned to training with his teammates and seems perfectly recovered from his thigh injury. He will be operating this Thursday night against Galatasaray.
