Igor Tudor, the manager of Marseille, is presently dealing with fewer team options. Azzedine Ounahi (fractured toe) and Amine Harit (cruciate ligament injury) will not be able to play in this match.
With a starting lineup of Pau Lopez, Chancel Mbemba, Samuel Gigot, Sead Kolasinac, Jonathan Clauss, Valentin Rongier, Jordan Veretout, Nuno Tavares, Cengiz Ünder, Ruslan Malinovskyi, and Alexis Sanchez, we predict Les Olympiens will employ a 3-4-2-1 scheme.
