With just a handful of games to go, Lorient are clinging onto Ligue 1 status - and a win over one of the competition's best sides would go a long way to easing their burdens.

They cannot expect an easy ride, but may well hope that midweek exertions have taken it out of their visitors.

Predicted Lorient starting XI: Dreyer; Mendes, Laporte, Morel, Petrot, Le Goff; Le Fee, Innocent, Monconduit; Lauriente, Moffi.

PositionMarseille roster
Goalkeepers Ngapandouentnbu, Gonzelez, Mandanda, Nazaretian, Vanni
Defenders Saliba, Kamara, Balerdi, Peres, Caleta-Car, Kolasinac, Lirola, Caprice
Midfielders Guendouzi, Harit, Gerson, Payet, Lopez, Under, Rongier, Gueye, Souare, Bertelli, Targhaline, Sciortino, Nadir
Forwards Milik, Henrique, Dieng, Bakambu, De La Fuente, Ben Seghir, Benyahia-Tani

After the frustrations of a goalless draw with Feyenoord that saw their exit from Europe, Jorge Sampaoli must get his side back on track and firing for the last few games of the term.

At any other point, this could well be something of a routine performance - but with plenty at stake for both sides, they will expect a difficult challenge on the road.

Predicted Marseille starting XI: Mandanda; Rongier, Saliba, Caleta-Car, Peres; Gerson, Kamara, Guendouzi; Under, Bakambu, Harit
