Lille vs Marseille build-up & previous line-ups:
After matchday eight defending Ligue 1 champions Lille find themselves in ninth place and 13 points behind early leaders Paris Saint-Germain after winning just three of their previous Ligue 1 outings. Jocelyn Gourvennec’s men began their 2021/22 campaign on a three-game winless streak, which included a 0-4 loss against Nice now coached by their former coach Christophe Galtier, they’ve since picked up two further defeats but three wins as well including their last two games (2-1 v Reims and 2-1 v Strasbourg). Having won 2-0 against Marseille earlier this year, Les Dogues have not won consecutive games against Marseille at home in Ligue 1 since March 2001-October 2002 (three in a row).
Things are much brighter concerning Marseille who find themselves sitting third on 14 points but with a game in hand and if they were to claim those extra three points then Jorge Sampaoli’s side would become PSG’s nearest challengers albeit from a distance. Les Phocéens come into this latest round of fixtures having won four of their opening matches, but they’ve recently hit a brick wall, after winning three on the bounce they played out a goalless draw against Angers before suffering a shock 2-3 loss at home to Lens – a game that saw them come from 0-2 behind only to throw it all away. Marseille have not lost consecutive top-flight matches since January in a run of three straight defeats.

Player to watch: Jonathan David (Lille)
Missing a player of Jonathan Bamba’s ilk has not helped Lille’s cause this season. The 25-year-old French forward is currently sidelined with a thigh injury. Marseille just so happens to be his favourite opponents with Bamba being previously involved in six goals against them (scoring two himself and creating four more). In his absence others need to step up. Someone who could very well do that is young Canadian centre-forward Jonathan David who comes into this latest outing having registered at least one goal in Lille’s last two Ligue 1 outings (three goals). David, who finished on 13 goals last term, will be looking to extend his scoring run against Marseille and in their most recent meeting at Stade Pierre-Mauroy he netted both goals as the would-be French champions claimed a 2-0 success.
