Kick off: 23 January 22:00
Information: Monaco only have two absentees to worry about, as midfield duo Cesc Fabregas and Florentino Luis remain sidelined with a calf problem and coronavirus respectively. Guillermo Maripan has displaced Axel Disasi in defence recently, while Djibril Sidibe is also expected to keep his place at right-back after forcing his way into the team. Aleksandr Golovin is yet to start a game since returning from a serious hamstring injury, but Kovac could place his faith in the 24-year-old this weekend. Marseille lost midfield lynchpin Boubacar Kamara to a muscular injury against Nimes and he will not return just yet, while Villas-Boas hopes to have Jordan Amavi back in time for the clash with Rennes on January 30. On a more positive note, Alvaro Gonzalez is ready to come back into the defence after returning from a ban, while new arrival Pol Lirola was ineligible to face Lens but should return here. The visitors recently rejected an offer from Aston Villa for midfielder Morgan Sanson, and Villas-Boas described the Premier League outfit’s bid as “pathetic”. Monaco possible starting lineup: Lecomte; Sidibe, Maripan, Badiashile, Henrique; Diop, Tchouameni, Fofana, Golovin; Ben Yedder, Volland Marseille possible starting lineup: Mandanda; Lirola, Gonzalez, Caleta-Car, Sakai; Gueye, Rongier; Thauvin, Sanson, Payet; Benedetto
