It's fourth plays eighth on Match Day 28 in Ligue 1 as Marseille welcome Nice to the Stade VĂ©lodrome. With only four points between the sides, Nice could take a big step towards Europa League qualification if they are able to pick up a win in this one. It is the Champion's League which is the aim for Marseille. Six points adrift of Lyon, they will be looking to make use of this game in hand to close the gap on their rivals.


Marseille have won the last four meetings between the sides, coming out on top 2-1 in this game last season, and winning 1-0 in Nice earlier in the current campaign.


No confirmed injuries for either side in this one, but Danilo does miss out through suspension for Nice.


Marseille are in just about their best form of the season having posted five wins in their past six. They have won eight of 13 at home, with the only defeats coming against top two PSG and Lille. Rudi Garcia's men have kept a clean sheet in their past three games here.


Having won four of their first seven on the road, Nice are now winless in their past seven - losing four - and have failed to score in each of their last three.


Marseille are the better side overall, in the better form of the two and can pick up the win in this one.



Prediction: Marseille 2 - 0 Nice
