It is the shock of this 36th day of Ligue 1. Lille (5th) receives Marseille (3rd), on Saturday 20 May. The stakes will be high for both teams, on the grass of the Pierre Mauroy stadium.

After the victory against Angers (3-1) last week, OM are just two points behind second place, synonymous with direct qualification for the Champions League, occupied for the moment by Lens. If they win, OM have the opportunity to temporarily take the lead and put pressure on Lensois before Sunday’s trip to Lorient.

Just a point clear of 6th-placed Rennes for fifth place to qualify for the Europa League conference, Lille will be hoping to get revenge for the first leg where they lost 2-1 at the Stade Vélodrome. Losc remains on a defeat against Reims (1-0) and a draw in Monaco (0-0).
