Michel appointed as the new “Olympique de Marseille”‘s head coach – Ligue 1

Two weeks after Marcelo Bielsa oupted out of the Marseille-based football club “Olympique de Marseille”, the team is getting stronger with a new coach on the lead. Moreover, the way it has proved its legacy is quite promising for the rest of the ongoing season. Actually, both its supporters and sports betting fans witnessed a stunning match on Sunday. The now Michel-coached OM showed off its core potential by screening its two (1-0) losses against Caen and Reims. Admittedly, Spain-born coach Michel has successfully found the right potion the team has ever needed to get up from its bed. The new coach has chosen a totally new playing strategy than that of “El Loco”.

Marseille recently distinguished itself from other squads with its three-and-one strategy. Michel has chosen to get rid of the one-on-one tactics Marseille used to work on under the coaching of Marcelo Bielsa. Additionally, Michel included in the starting lineup some new faces including Rémy Cabella and Javier Manquillo. The Sunday’s game also was marked by the return of Lassana Diarra among the playing squad. The new tactics really paid off as OM set the whole Vélodrome alight by crushing Troyes 6-0 in the 3rd week of the Ligue 1. Abdelaziz Barrada opened the scoring in the 19th minute. Early after the break (47th), the show continued with Lassana Diarra scoring another goal, then followed by that of Michy Batshuayi (56th, 90th), Lucas Ocampos (64th) and Romain Alessandrini (88th).
