Marseille midfielder Morgan Amalfitano will miss the Ajaccio game due to a knee injury, while question-marks hang over the participation of Benoît Cheyrou and Jérémy Morel for the first match of the Ligue 1 weekend.
Despite those selection issues, Marseille will likely field a strong team against Ajaccio.
Centre-forward Andre-Pierre Gignac will be looking to reignite his scoring prowess after going off the boil in recent weeks, while the supporting attacking roles will be filled by Jordan and Andre Ayew.
Further back Joey Barton should start in OM’s central midfield, alongside Mathieu Valbuena and Alaixys Romao.
As for Ajaccio, sitting in 13th place and hugely unlikely to go down, the visitors on Friday night should have the freedom to play without fear at Marseille.
Spearheaded by Adrian Mutu, Ajaccio will likely deployed a 4-5-1 formation at OM which will look to hit the hosts on the break. Moreover Ajaccio will carry a threat from set-pieces, with the likes on Ronaldo Zubar able to come up from the back to offer an aerial threat.
