Marseille will hope to put their European disappointments behind them and end the Ligue 1 season on a high note when they begin their final run-in against Lorient this weekend.
The visitors can move back into second with victory against their lowly hosts, but will likely face a tough test as the latter attempt to secure their top-flight survival.

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.

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
