Predicted Marseille XI v Nice

New signing Azzedine Ounhai could be in line for his first start for Olympique de Marseille. The Moroccan international has already made his debut, capping it with a brilliant solo goal against FC Nantes. 

There are no fresh injury concerns for Igor Tudor to deal with. Amine Harit is a long-term absentee, whilst Manchester United loanee Eric Bailly is still suspended following his red card tackle in the Coupe de France. Ounahi could come into the side to make his first start for Les Phocéens against Mediterranean rivals OGC Nice. 

Les Aiglons can call upon Terem Moffi for Sunday night’s tie after the Nigerian rejected Marseille in favour of a move to the Allianz Riviera. Elsewhere, Alexis Sanchez and Dimitri Payet are set to start in attack, and they could be joined by Mattéo Gundouzi, who is accustomed to playing a more attacking role under Tudor. 

Marseille likely lineup v Nice

Lopez – Balderi, Gigot, Mbemba – Tavares, Veretout, Ounahi, Clauss – Payet, Sanchez, Guendouzi.
