Marseille return to Ligue 1 action looking to keep their grip on a spot in the top three when they travel to Bordeaux on Friday at 8pm (UK time).
Jorge Sampaoli’s side are currently two points clear of fourth-placed Rennes going into the second half of the Ligue 1 season having played one game fewer, but things are so close outside the title race. Marseille did have the chance to go into the winter break second, but went 1-0 down to Reims and had to rely on an injury-time penalty from Dimitri Payet to rescue a point. Bordeaux, meanwhile, will hope the second half of the season sees them move away from the relegation zone. The hosts are currently 17th, just one point clear of 19th-placed Lorient having lost three of their past six Ligue 1 matches.

Bordeaux team news
Bordeaux had to field a rotated and fairly young side in their Coupe de France game against Brest due to COVID and the hosts have actually sent a request to postpone this game.
A statement released by Bordeaux, to the fans, read: “FC Girondins de Bordeaux has sent a request to postpone the Bordeaux-Marseille match, scheduled for Friday, January 7.
“To date, 17 players from the professional workforce are unavailable for this meeting because of the Covid-19 epidemic.
“Aware of the respect that we owe you, we do not wish to keep you in uncertainty and in the impossibility of organising yourself within a few days of such an expected deadline.
“This is why, in view of the instability of the health situation, we decided that this meeting, if it were to continue, would be played without an audience.
“In the event that the match is postponed to a later date to accommodate you, your place will remain valid.
“In the event that this meeting is maintained, the Club will come back to you next week regarding your compensation arrangements.
“Thank you for your understanding and support.”
Most recent Bordeaux XI: Rouyard; Aggoun, Pembele, Atallah, Louisjean; Elis, Pascal, Depussay, Dilrosun; Hwang, Briand.
Marseille team news
Marseille have been quite fortunate with regards to absentees and injuries returning from the winter break and were able to name a pretty strong squad for their cup game in midweek. You’d expect Friday’s game to be the same, if it does go ahead, with the likes of Dimitri Payet, Arkadiusz Milik and Duje Caleta-Car all tipped to start. However, Valentin Rongier is expected to miss out.
Marseille predicted XI: Lopez; Saliba, Peres, Caleta-Car; Lirola, Kamara, Guendouzi, Gerson; Under, Milik, Payet.
