Marseille predicted XI v Nantes: Jonathan Clauss out, Bamo Meïté and Pape Gueye return

Jean-Louis Gasset’s Olympique de Marseille will look for their fifth win in five as they host FC Nantes. Pape Gueye returns to the midfield after missing out on the club’s 4-0 victory over Villarreal due to his exclusion from their Europa League squad meaning Geoffrey Kondogbia drops to the bench 

Jonathan Clauss will also likely be rested ahead of this game with Chancel Mbemba shifting out wide to the right-back position. In Mbemba’s place, Bamo Meïté will be played in the centre of defence alongside Leonardo Balerdi. 

Upfront, a now settled and effective attacking trio of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Ismaïla Sarr, and Iliman Ndiaye in the number ten role will look to add to the team’s total of 16 goals across the last four games.
