In a Vélodrome stadium which celebrated the 30th anniversary of OM’s victory in the Champions League this Saturday, Igor Tudor’s men spoiled the party by losing to Stade Brestois (2-1). One last at home in the image of the season for the Olympians, who lost no less than 23 points in their lair.

Now eight points behind RC Lens, the Phocaeans will have to go through two rounds of play-offs to play in the next Champions League. But before turning definitively to the 2023-2024 season, OM will try to finish as best as possible on the lawn of an Ajaccio already condemned and in distress for long weeks. For this meeting, Tudor will be without Valentin Rongier, suspended, but also Samuel Gigot, who has still not recovered from his head shock.

Leg still in concussion protocol since May 20

Following a kick from Carlos Baleba received in the face during the trip to Lille, the Olympian central defender was forced to give up his place, before being placed in concussion protocol by the LFP. Some exams still have to take place and Gigot will therefore not be traveling to Corsica this weekend. A meeting without stake for the two teams.

This season, the native of Avignon was one of Igor Tudor’s coaches with 33 games played in all competitions for two goals and two assists. If some players will not be retained by the club during the off-season like Leonardo Balerdi, Mattéo Guendouzi or Cengiz Under, Samuel Gigot should indeed be present during the resumption at the Commanderie in July. Recruited free after leaving Spartak Moscow, the Frenchman is valued at 10 million euros.
