To say that they had no points at the end of the second day and that their European destiny already seemed promised to end quickly. Before Matchday 5, OM regained faith in their history and believed more than ever in qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League, a first for the club since 2011-2012.
Traveling to Frankfurt to challenge Eintracht (9 p.m.), the Olympians will be keen to repair a completely failed first leg (0-2). But could even afford their ticket on Wednesday. For that, it would take a combination of positive results: for Tottenham to win against Sporting and for OM to do the same in Germany. Here are the possible scenarios this Wednesday evening.
Guendouzi, the age of reason?
AN HOUR AGO
OM qualified for the round of 16 if…
- OM win in Frankfurt and Tottenham beat Sporting at home
OM guaranteed to finish at least 3rd if…
- OM won in Frankfurt, regardless of the result of the match between Tottenham and Sporting.
Any other scenario would prevent drawing definitive conclusions..
In case of defeat in Frankfurt, the Marseillais will still have a final to play against Tottenham in the last match.
- If by chance the Spurs do not win against Sporting on Wednesday, OM will be masters of their destiny for the last day.
- If Spurs win, on the other hand, the Marseillais will have to win against Spurs and hope that Frankfurt does not win against Sporting in the last game. In short, brain knots to avoid by winning in Germany this Wednesday.
