For the next two important matches, OM will be able to count on the support of their visiting fans, who were far from winning at the start.
The start of the season continues to be very positive for theOM, in particular thanks to the solid performances in Ligue 1. The public follows since Igor Tudor’s formation connects the matches before a Velodrome packed to the throat. However, for the Provencal club, the issue of the fans remains just as tense. After the incidents at Tottenham and against Frankfurt, OM is anxiously awaiting UEFA’s disciplinary decision. In France, Olympic fans are also closely followed. But for two meetings scheduled for the coming weeks, no ban has been pronounced, neither in France nor in Europe.
The Angers match is not listed as high risk
This Friday, La Provence takes stock one week before the game in Angers. Last season, this match led to serious incidents, with a settling of scores between fans that took place on the pitch, a fight and the launch of numerous projectiles after the match that once again tarnished the image of football. However, the OM has received the green light for the movement of its followers, who will number 500 and will be strictly supervised for the occasion. A good surprise as everyone in Marseille was convinced that the ban was going to fall.
A closed door risk against Sporting
A few days later, OM will travel to Lisbon to challenge Sporting in the Champions League. Again, despite the incidents in London during the first match, UEFA gave the go-ahead for the fan movement. A match on October 12 where travel will therefore be authorized, while it is still not certain that the first leg, on October 4, can be played in a full Velodrome. Indeed, the European body has not yet made its decision, in order to know if last season’s pardon was going to jump. In any case, tickets are on sale now, hoping OM doesn’t have to cancel all of that in the next few days.
