Marseille played out a goalless draw in their previous clash against Angers, which left them 10 points behind table toppers, PSG.
Hence, this is a chance for the hosts to consolidate, return to winning ways and cement their form in the Ligue 1 this season.
With 4 wins and 2 draws, they are 2nd in the table and performing well.
On the other hand, Lens suffered their first defeat of the season on Thursday when they lost 1-0 to Strasbourg through Ajorque’s goal.
It was their first defeat across competitions this season and would like to return to winning ways this time.
A minor blip which Lens can afford to have faced but not anymore as they look to progress up the table.
Lens is 6th in the table with 12 points from 7 matches.
Both sides last met in February this year where it finished 2-2.
Last Matches of both teams:
Angers 0-0 Marseille
Lens 0-1 Strasbourg
