Marseille – Le Havre preview: Latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Marseille vs Le Havre lineups.


Marseille’s winless run increased to 6 on Thursday night when only a 2-2 home draw was registered vs Brighton in a Europa League clash. Marseille should have won this match but again inability to score more goals when in control combined with bad individual errors in defence led to the draw. 

In the league, Marseille slipped out of the top 10 after losing consecutive games. However, those were both matches on the road and against the top 2 contenders for the title – PSG and Monaco. Marseille’s form at Stade Velodrome in Ligue 1 is good and they’ve won 5 of their last 7 home league games D1 L1. 

Influential playmaker Kondogbia is the only serious injury issue in the squad right now. Some rotation is likely as fatigue will be a factor after Thursday. Fit-again Sarr and the aggressive Ounahi could start in this match. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Lopez (GK), Clauss, Mbemba, Gigot, Murillo, Ounahi, Rongier, Veretout, Ndiaye, Aubameyang & Sarr

Le Havre

Last weekend Le Havre struggled at both ends of the pitch when Lille visited them and this led to a logical 0-2 loss. The Dragons conceded cheap goals on each side of the interval, the second one was their own goal, while at the same time, they registered a single shot on target in this match. 

This was the first defeat in the last 5 rounds though W2 D2 and Le Havre are enjoying their return to the top flight so far. They recorded draws in all of their 3 away league matches this season. 

Influential playmaker Confais remains sidelined. This is the only injury issue though as the other 2 players currently in the treatment room feature rarely even when fit. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Demas (GK), Salmier, Sangante, Lloris, Operi, Nego, Sabbi, Kuzyayev, Casemir, Alioui & Soumane
