Nantes seemed to struggle in their opening match at Kopa and also failed to generate much at all after finishing the last season with 55 points, their highest total in the top flight since 2003/04 (60), extending their losing skid in the opening league games to six games.
Their backline has been under a lot of duress defensively this month, surrendering eight shots on goal in their 4-0 loss to Paris Saint-Germain at the Trophee des Champions and an additional six against Angers.
The team’s manager, Antoine Kombouare, lauded his goalie for helping them keep a clean sheet the previous weekend, but he was less than thrilled with his players’ lack of organization, who were sometimes placed too far apart on the pitch, creating numerous opportunities for opponents.
Last week, Marseille got off to a strong 2022–23 season start by defeating Reims 4–1 at home on the first day of play. In a matchup in which they have a strong recent record, Ivan Tudor’s team appears to have a great chance to make it two wins in a row. Marseille has started this season in strong road form. Marseille has won its last two games at this stadium, with both teams scoring in each of those games, and has lost only three of its last 12 road games overall.
Marseille vs Nantes Team News
Suarez has undoubtedly done enough to beat out Arkadiusz Milik to earn a spot in the starting lineup this week, even though Sanchez is probably going to sit on the bench.
After serving their respective one-match suspensions on matchday one, Duje Caleta-Car and Pape Gueye will be available to Tudor. The former could replace Leonardo Balerdi, who did not receive much credit for Balogun’s goal last weekend.
Tudor also caused controversy by starting Jordan Veretout off the bench against Reims. Still, it was a decision that paid off for the Olympiens coach, who also gave Jordan Veretout his competitive debut. Pau Lopez, the goalkeeper for Marseille, should be the only one out with a groin injury, giving Ruben Blanco another chance to shine at the goal post.
Ludovic Blas and Moses Simon will be expected to score as Blas scored ten goals, and Simon led them with eight assists last year. Alban Lafont made six saves for Nantes in their season opener to earn his first clean sheet of the year.
While Moussa Sissoko played his first game for La Maison Jaune since leaving Watford in the summer, Evann Guessand had a terrible debut game for the team as the Nice loanee barely touched the ball and was replaced by Mostafa Mohamed in the later part against Angers.
