Riyad Mahrez will indeed be OM’s opponent on Tuesday night when Manchester City travels to the Orange Vélodrome lawn for the second day of the Champions League. This did not prevent the Algerian international from paying a fine tribute to the Marseille team on Monday, at the microphone of RMC.
“Marseille has a history”
“Marseille is a big French club. They have a history in the Champions League. It’s a great team. I’m a bit from France so I know, praised Fennec. It’s going to be a tough game. I think (in camera) it is a game-changer. The Vélodrome is magnificent so it is sure to be even better. It changes the game a bit after they are in their game. They will try to play their game like us. “
As a reminder, for their first continental outing of the season, OM lost at the very end of the game on the field of Olympiakos. Not really an ideal start to the competition for the vice-champion of France … Especially when we know that the Mancuniens already occupy the first place in Group C after their success against Porto (3-1) last week.
