To win the title of champion of France, OM will have to make an almost perfect course during the last five days of L1. Hoping for several missteps from PSG.
The dismal defeat of PSG combined with the victory of Olympique de Marseille, last Sunday, revived the suspense for the title of champion of France. Now, the Marseille club is only five points behind that of the capital in the Ligue 1 standings. Several Marseille players imagine overthrowing Paris in the home stretch.

Eric Di Meco is much less optimistic. “There are five matches left, with a trip to Lens (Saturday). The equation is simple: to finish second, you have to have a champion’s course. That is to say, you have to win all five games or at least not lose to Lens and win the other four games behind. So there is no need to say: ‘We are playing the title’. You have to win everything. Afterwards, if Paris loses twice… But Paris must lose twice anyway. It’s a lot “estimated the sports consultant, Monday, on the airwaves of RMC.
⚪🔵 With this PSG, should OM still believe in the title?

“Let’s stop pretending that if you say you’re going to play for the title, you have a chance of playing it and let’s stop pretending that the guys never believed it. It’s not in the newspapers that you have ambition. It’s in the locker room, in your everyday behavior, in what you do in training. And if the OM players say: ‘We’re playing for the title’ and they lose on Saturday in Lens, we know who will debate to smash them! »concluded the former left-back.
