It is a refusal which should not have pleased Olympique de Marseille. Indeed, as explained RMC Sport, while the OM will not play this weekend its match of the 11th day of Ligue 1 against Nice following the postponement of the match due to cases of coronavirus among the Aiglons, the Olympian club would have liked to play its match late facing Lens. But the Marseillais would have been refused this request by the Sang et Or.
Play OM rather than Dijon for Lens
Indeed, OM would have proposed to play the late match against Lens and thus postpone the Sang et Or match against Dijon, scheduled for Sunday at 3 p.m., because it is a match between two non-European teams and therefore easier to reschedule. The Marseille club have also contacted the DFCO and the LFP for this request. But Lens would have refused, arguing that the club already has a late match to play against Nantes on Wednesday, November 25 and that he therefore does not want to overload his schedule. And OM can therefore have regrets and, perhaps, anger as the club will have to face Porto in the Champions League next week after 18 days without playing, which is not the most ideal for the pace players.
