Olympique Marseille take on Porto at the Stade Velodrome in the UEFA Champions League this week in what is set to be a do-or-die battle for the French outfit.

The Ligue giant lost all three games in the competition so far, Les Olympiens are rock-bottom in Group C, and another defeat on Wednesday would effectively spell the end of their campaign.

Marseille should have Hiroki Sakai and Alvaro Gonzalez back in the lineup after they sat out of the weekend’s game against Strasbourg in Ligue 1. The French side does not have any fresh injury concerns.

Porto are facing a defensive crisis, with goalkeeper Mouhamed Mbaye and center-back duo Pepe and Ivan Marcano all out injured.

Right-back Jordan Amavi is already on two yellow cards and will be suspended for the Olympiacos game if he goes into the book again on Wednesday.

Porto have a clear advantage in this fixture historically, winning four out of their five games against Marseille, including a 3-0 thrashing at the Estádio do Dragão three weeks ago.

The only stalemate played out between these sides came at the venue of this upcoming clash, as Marseille held them to a 1-1 draw back in October 2007.
