Objectively, Bordeaux has been „hit” the most by the new unpleasant development with Covid 19 in the French football leagues. The coronavirus wave started from the middle of last month. They had 17 positive players, but the Federation didn’t postponed the last match in the French Cup against Brest, where easily lost by 3:0. They have played with only 7 players from the first team of which 6 are midfielders. Today, out of the squad are Adli (19/1), Mangas (17/1), Otavio (16/0), Fransergio (15/0), Mexer (13/1), Briand (12/2), Mara (12/1), Onana (11/2), Kalu (11/1), Mensah (10/0), Medioub (6/0), Sissokho (5/0), Traore (3/0), while Oudin (16/3) is doubtful. December was the month of contradictions in Marseille. There are many ups and downs in the results and the performance of the team in the Ligue 1 matches. Towards the end of the week, it was Marseille’s turn to deal with Covid 19. About half a dozen players were absent from Thursday’s training session, a sign that maybe these are the positive players. They have some absence due to African Cup of nations and suspensions like Bamba Dieng (14/4), but I think that must use the enormous problems in the home side who is heavily depleted in this match.
