The Polish striker could make his debut on Saturday night.
After officially joining theOM Thursday, as part of an 18-month loan from Napoli (with a call option that would be mandatory), Arkadiusz Milik will live his very first match with the Marseille club, Saturday (9 p.m.). It will be a crucial shock in the title race, since the formation of André Villas-Boas, 6th in the ranking of League 1 after a draw and two defeats, receives AS Monaco, 4th with 4 more points on the clock.
The 26-year-old center forward is well qualified for this match of the 21st day since he is included in the group of 21 players unveiled Friday. Milik should not start the match, however, since he has not played since November 15 in the League of Nations. Sidelined at Napoli, the former Ajax player has indeed continued to play with the Polish selection (2 matches in September, 3 in October and 2 in November).
Amavi and Kamara, it’s no
Facing the Monegasques, the Marseillais will always be deprived of Jordan amavi (neither Yuto Nagatomo, nor Hiroki Sakai, nor even Saïf Khaoui out of the bench have distinguished themselves in this position for a month), as well as Boubacar Kamara, too fair. Valentin Rongier and Pape Gueye, slightly injured during the catastrophic performance against Lens (0-1), are operational. No other absent is to report.
