Eric Tie Bi is expected to be out for a considerable length of time after sustaining knee and ankle injuries in a reserve game.
Marseille are yet to taste defeat this season after they followed up their 1-0 win over Nancy with a fine comeback at Fenerbache in the Europa League on Thursday.
Elie Baup's men were 2-0 down going into the final ten minutes in Turkey, but a goal from Mathieu Valbuena and a injury time equaliser from Andre Ayew earned them a point from a tricky away trip.
Evian also tasted success last week as a Cedric Barbosa brace inspired them to a 3-0 win over Bastia. Yannick Sagbo also finally got his name on the scoresheet as the men from Annecy notched their first win of the campaign.
The visitors will have a tough time repeating that feat this weekend however as they face a defence that has conceded just one goal so far this campaign.
Pascal Dupraz's men will also have to guard against a potent Marseille attack. Joey Barton will not be available for selection after making his debut for the club in the game against Fenerbache, however, Baup's side are blessed with a multitude of great attacking players including the in-form Ayew brothers and top scorer Andre-Pierre Gignac.
Marseille have been outstanding going forward and as a defensive unit, and it is difficult to see Evian, in spite of their improved performance last week, ending L'OM's unbeaten run. A comfortable home win is all you should expect from this one.
