Team News

  • Jeremy Morel missed the game with Bordeaux but should return at left-back.
  • Gignac and Remy are both sidelined, so Jordan Ayew should continue to lead the line having been suspended in the league at the weekend.
  • Right-back Kassim Abdallah could return to the starting XI, though Charles Kabore could also move back into the defence to allow for a start for Joey Barton.
  • Caner Erkin may be favoured as a more defensive option over Stoch on the left despite being controversially sent off at the weekend.
  • Bekir Irtegun has taken his chance well in the absence of Egeman Korkmaz so should keep his place despite the centre-back's return to fitness.
  • Milos Krasic has been included in the squad this time, though Henri Bienvenu has been left out after expressing a desire to leave the club.

Prediction

  • Marseille are definitely in more need of a win on Thursday as they sit level on points with Gladbach but behind the German outfit due to their head-to-head record.
  • Fenerbahce know that a draw will be enough to see them qualify and may look to contain their French hosts and wait for their chances on the counter.
  • Baup's side are in poor form, struggling in the absence of a real striker to rely on to win just 1 of their last 8 matches in all competitions, and this is likely to be another tough encounter.
