Marseille will be looking to end their four-match winless streak in Ligue 1 when they host Metz on Friday.
Marseille coach Gennaro Gattuso will be without several key players for the match, including Valentin Rongier, Jordan Veretout, Chancel Mbemba, Geoffrey Kondogbia, and Pape Gueye.
Metz coach Laszlo Bölöni will also be without several players, including Ablie Jallow, Pape Matar Sarr, and Dylan Bronn.
Here are the probable lineups for both teams:
Marseille: Lopez; Clauss, Gigot, Balerdi, Merlin; Onana, Ounahi, Harit; Sarr, Moumbagna, Aubameyang.
Metz: Oukidja; Colin, Traoré, Heurtaux, Udol; Camara, N’Doram, Jean Jacques; Van den Kerkhof, Mikautadze, Lamkel Zé.
Marseille will be the favorites to win the match.
They have a stronger squad than Metz and are playing at home. However, Metz have been in good form recently and will be looking to cause an upset.
The match is likely to be a close one.
Both teams have strong attacking players and will be looking to score goals. However, both teams also have good defenses and will be looking to keep a clean sheet.
The match is a must-win for Marseille.
They need to start winning games if they want to finish in the top four of Ligue 1. Metz, on the other hand, will be looking to get a point or three to help them move away from the relegation zone.
The match is sure to be an exciting one.
Both teams have a lot to play for and will be giving it their all. It is a match that is not to be missed.
