Tottenham thought they had secured safe passage into the knockout stages of the Champions League last week when Harry Kane put the ball in the back of the net late on against Sporting CP. The goal had secured a 2-1 victory and also top spot in Group D, for the four minutes that it counted before being ruled out for offside. In the aftermath, Antonio Conte was sent off for foul and abusive language, and Tottenham players and fans alike expressed their confusion with the offside rule.

It appeared Tottenham had let the decision get to them at the weekend as they went 2-0 down to Bournemouth, but Conte’s side fought back to win 3-2 and keep their top four chase alive. Tottenham striker Harry Kane is hoping his side can carry the momentum over to Marseille, saying: “This one was pretty clear [Bentancur’s stoppage time winner], thank goodness, but it was a tough one to take the other night. But it was great to get the win, of course.

“For sure, there are things to improve, but we showed great character to come back from a tough period when we were 2-0 down and it leads us nicely into the rest of the week.

“Fitness-wise we are very strong, which could explain why we often finish games strongly.

“And, mentally, I think when the players are free and we have nothing to lose, we play better – we get more people forward and keep the pressure on in the opposition half. That’s how it played out against Sporting in midweek and here it worked out in the end.”

While Tottenham only need to avoid defeat to qualify for the last 16, Marseille have to win to secure their spot in the knockout stages. Despite sitting bottom of the group going into the final matchweek, Marseille can still finish top, though they will have to do something they haven’t done in the Champions League this season.

Marseille have won two of their five games in the Champions League this season but both of those victories came against Sporting CP, losing twice against Eintracht Frankfurt and once vs Tottenham.

Following a run out of the team, Ivan Perisic has proven his worth to Antonio Conte. The Croatian has provided an assist in each of his past two games across all competitions, setting up Rodrigo Bentacur against Sporting CP and Ben Davies vs Bournemouth.

Son Heung-min has been a threat in the Champions League this season and scored twice in Tottenham’s 3-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt. In that game and the 1-1 draw with Sporting CP, Son took eight shots on target, averaging 4.1 per 90 minutes.
