Since the resumption of training at the Robert-Louis Dreyfus center on July 3, preparation has been organized around the decisive meeting at the beginning of August: the third preliminary round of the Champions League. A first month of competition which already promises to be decisive for the Olympians’ season, especially from a financial point of view if they manage to win their ticket for the C1.

Historically, French clubs have rarely managed to pass the play-offs. Since the new formula came into effect, about ten years ago, only Monaco has managed to achieve this objective. While the big teams are used to starting gradually to find their cruising speed in September, OM will have to be close to their best level very quickly. A summer preparation turned upside down which will not be without consequences if we believe Serge Conesa, physical trainer during the first year of Didier Deschamps (2009-2010).

“It is difficult for organizations that have not reached their cruising speed”

From the first leg of the 3rd preliminary round, the Olympians will play 8 matches in 26 daysexplains the former member of the Marseille staff. It is difficult for organizations that have not reached their cruising speed. There are two solutions. The first is to adapt your preparation to have a peak of form as soon as you resume. But, later, we inevitably expose ourselves to a backlash. The second is based on the staff. He will practice a large turnover from one meeting to another. On the other hand, it can complicate the establishment of a team, the precepts of the game. This situation imposes you permanent dilemmas.

The depth of the workforce will therefore be a major asset to allow OM to respond on all fronts. For the moment, we are still very far from it since only Geoffrey Kondogbia has come to strengthen the Olympian ranks since the start of the summer transfer window.
