Team News

  • Marseille go into the game with a slew of injury concerns.
  • Andre-Pierre Gignac remains out with a fractured foot, as does Loic Remy, who has a thigh problem.
  • Mathieu Valbeuna is a doubt with a back complaint, while Nicolas N'Koulou is expected to miss out with a groin injury.
  • Gennaro Bracigliano has a shoulder problem, and Leyti N'Diaye is out with a thigh injury.
  • Senah Mango will also be absent due to an ankle concern, and Lucas Mendes is suspended, but there is some good news for OM as Joey Barton and Jordan Ayew return from suspension.
  • Lille have almost a fully fit squad to choose from ahead of their visit to the Velodrome.
  • Ryan Mendes, who has a hamstring concern, and Franck Beria has a knee injury, but otherwise manager Rudi Garcia has a full squad to choose from, with Marvin Martin returning from suspension.

Prediction

  • Both Marseille and Lille go into the final game of the weekend looking to bounce back from disappointing results.
  • Marseille fell to defeat at historic rivals Bordeaux, while Lille were humbled by Lorient. However, Rudi Garcia's side did gain some comfort with a comfortable win over BATE Borisov in the Champions League in midweek.
  • L'OM have struggled with injuries recent weeks, and manager Elie Baup will hope that the likes of Joey Barton, Andre Ayew and Morgan Amalfitano can provide the creative flair to guide his side to victory.
  • Lille are not short on playmakers themselves and with Marvin Martin, Salomon Kalou and Dimitri Payet all expected to start, this one should be an open and exciting game that is perhaps most likely to end all square.
