After a solid run of form in their recent games, Olympique Marseille will be hoping to continue the positive results when they host in-form Lille at the Stade Velodrome in the 18th round of the French top tier.
Marseille have been struggling with consistency since the start of the campaign. They have started off the season with some shocking results but they managed to get their act together in recent weeks. The hosts have earned 8 points from a possible 15 in their last 5 league games. Their last game was against Dijon away from home where they have won 2-1.
The hosts are sitting in 9th place in the league table with 24 points from 6 wins, 6 draws and 5 losses. They have scored 18 goals and conceded 18 since the start of the season.
Lassana Diarra is more likely to return to action than Rémy Cabella and Bafétimbi Gomis against Lille, with the latter a huge doubt after picking up a thigh injury in the Coupe de la Ligue. Clinton N’Jie may need to replace Gomis up front, unless Aaron Leya Iseka receives another chance from Rudi Garcia.
The visitors have been also in a terrific form recently in the league. Lille have won all of their last 3 games and they are absolutely ready for the Marseille trip. The team have collected a total of 10 points from a possible 12 in their last 4 league games. Their last game was against Montpelier at home where they’ve won 2-1.
Lille are sitting in 12th place in the league table with 20 points from 6 wins, 2 draws and 9 losses. They have scored 17 goals and conceded 22 since the start of the season.
Nicolas de Préville, who has been essential in the club’s recent turn around in Ligue 1, sustained a hamstring injury at the Parc des Princes in midweek that will keep him sidelined here. Rony Lopes and Mounir Obbadi are both major doubts for Patrick Collot, who could face a serious injury crisis for the first time since being appointed caretaker manager.
