Three days before the confrontation between OM and RC Lens, Dimitri Payet and Arkadiusz Milik both participated in collective training this Friday morning at the Commanderie.
Two very good news for Marseille fans, when we know that Dimitri Payet made a thunderous start to the season by scoring 3 goals in the first two days, and thatArkadiusz Milik had found the net 10 times in 16 meetings in the shirt of OM last season. However, it is impossible to know the playing time of the two players on Sunday night at the Stade Vélodrome.
OM: Milik, the end of a long recovery
Regarding Arkadiusz Milik, Tuesday in a press conference, the coach of OM, Jorge Sampaoli, expressed as to the supposed date of return of the Polish goalscorer : “We hope he can be there on Sunday and play a few minutes (against Lens)”. The presence of the Marseille striker this Friday morning in training confirms the words of the Argentine coach about his possible return Sunday against the Sang et Or. As a reminder, seriously injured in the meniscus during the last day of championant in Metz last May, the Pole has only returned to collective training since the beginning of last week.
Payet back on his feet
On the French international side, the situation is quite different. Absent in Angers Wednesday night because of a thigh discomfort, just like in Monaco and Moscow in the Europa League, the Marseille staff did not seem to want to take any risks with their playmaker. The Réunion Native had played the entire match against Stade Rennais last weekend without showing any signs of injury. No doubt therefore that Dimitri Payet should be able to apply for a starting place in the starting xi on Sunday night against Lens for the 8th matchday of Ligue 1.
