All the elements seem to have come together for Sunday's Olympico to be a great success in terms of atmosphere.
To read – Young, Henry supported the OM!
Those who remember the overheated atmosphere when Mathieu Valbuena return to the Velodrome in September 2015 will not be surprised: the reception reserved for Garcia will be too tense, and probably hateful. At the end of a catastrophic 2018-2019 season, the French technician has not left the fans on good terms, and they will not fail to remind him.
200 hours of work around the tifo
In terms of atmosphere, OM supporters have planned things big to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the club, with a tifo already announced as exceptional. 200 hours of work, 5 minutes of duration, a 3D effect and the union of all groups of supporters to achieve such a result. It promises !
Especially since the Velodrome will be full Sunday night. For the small as for the "big" games, the Marseillais know how to mobilize and the Olympico will be once again the opportunity to prove it: 64.900 supporters are expected in the Marseille area!
The attendance record dates from 2015
What to break the record of affluence? Still not. It dates from the Classic against PSG in February 2017. At the time, 65,252 people had moved to the Velodrome, and Sunday's Olympico should not be able to equalize. Nevertheless, the meeting will be hot, hoping that the players are up to the supporters!
