Feverish, Pau Lopez missed the last two collective sessions of OM before the reception of Montpellier on Saturday, as part of the knockout stages of the Coupe de France. In the absence of the Spanish goalkeeper, Steve Mandanda has prepared well to play.

Jorge Sampaoli suspended from the bench for the OM match scheduled for Saturday against Montpellier, his assistant Jorge Desio will lead the Marseille team in the Coupe de France. Two days before the round of 16 against the Héraultais, the number 2 of the Marseille staff gave news of Pau Lopez, absent from training. The Spaniard might not play against the MHSC.

“Pau Lopez had a little fever but we believe that everything is going well for him, said Jorge Desio this Thursday against the press. We’ll have to wait until Friday. We’ll see what condition he’s in and if he’s better.”
