THE PREDICTION

An 86th-minute equaliser from Jose Fonte salvaged a draw for Lille against Strasbourg last time out and they go into this round of fixtures two points clear of reigning champions PSG at the top of the Ligue 1 table. Their squad depth is getting tested at the moment with the games coming thick and fast but they know they cannot afford to drop many more points as they try to hold off their rivals and secure a first league title since 2010-11. They will have to be wary of visiting Marseille though, who had been improving under interim coach Nasser Larguet and have recently announced the appointment of experienced manager Jorge Sampaoli. The Marseille players will be keen to impress the new boss so expect them to give a good account of themselves in a match that is likely to see both team score.
