Following their Europa League exit, Jean-Louis Gasset’s side will now turn their attention to their final three league matches against Lorient, Reims and Le Havre as they aim to secure European qualification for next season.

Having picked up 44 points from 31 matches, Marseille are sitting in ninth position and five points adrift of sixth-placed Lens, who they beat 2-1 in their most recent Ligue 1 game to end a five-game winless run in the top flight.

Although they have a game in hand over the three teams above them, Marseille know that they can ill afford to drop points in their final three games, beginning with Sunday’s home contest against a Lorient side they have beaten in eight of their previous nine head-to-head encounters.

Meanwhile, Lorient are in a perilous position after losing each of their last six matches, including their recent 2-0 defeat to European hopefuls Lens.

Having failed to win any of their last eight matches, Lorient are languishing in 17th position in the league standings with just 26 points and six points adrift of 15th-placed Le Havre.

After shipping 63 goals in 32 matches, Les Merlus currently have the worst defensive record in the top flight, and while their vulnerable backline will be an obvious concern ahead of Sunday’s contest, they will also need to improve at the opposite end of the picth after failing to score in any of their last three games.

Marseille vs. Lorient Head to head

In the previous 35 meetings between these two teams, Marseille have claimed 20 victories while Lorient have won six, and they have drawn in nine. Lorient have scored 40 goals and conceded 65 in the process.

Marseille Team News

Marseille remain without midfielder Valentin Rongier and forward Bilal Nadir due to knee injuries, while defender Leonardo Balerdi is set to serve a one-game suspension for an accumulation of yellow cards.

With Balerdi unavailable for selection, Amir Murillo could be given the chance to feature in a back three alongside Chancel Mbemba and Samuel Gigot.

Lorient Team News

Lorient may have to cope without the services of Igor Silva, Ayman Kari, Bonke Innocent, Quentin Boisgard, Formose Mendy and Bamba Dieng.

Head coach Regis Le Bris could be tempted to recall Isaak Toure to operate in a back three with Monstassar Talbi and Nathaniel Adjei.
