7:52 p.m.: This evening, this information is confirmed by several French media and in particular the sports daily The Team. The date of this gala match will take place on July 31 at the Orange Vélodrome.
2:47 p.m.: This morning we revealed three of the five friendly matches of Olympique de Marseille scheduled for this summer. For several weeks, the media have been announcing that a historic poster could take place at Velodrome on July 31. After previous summer posters against Naples, Juventus of Turin or Villareal last summer, it would be the turn of another big name in European football to come and rub shoulders with the Marseille club.
According to Milan Newsthe rumor about this gala poster would have found confirmation on Monday and OM should therefore receive theAC Milan by Stefano Pioli as part of the preseason. A series of matches that would best prepare Jorge Sampaoli’s men. It would therefore miss a fifth meeting to add to this list to have all of Marseille’s preparation before the resumption against Reims at home in early August.
In its history, Olympique de Marseille has faced the Rossoneri club five times, only in the Champion’s League, and Marseille fans have rather good memories of a certain confrontation one evening in May 1993, but also of the double confrontation in the quarter of the final in 1991. This poster will therefore be able to recall the crazy European evenings and therefore give a taste of the next Champions League campaign, certainly raised, which awaits the Olympians from next season. And where OM could find… AC Milan.
