Several weeks ago, OM were in the midst of the title battle at the top of the French title. However, after damaging defeats to Paris Saint-Germain and Girondins de Bordeaux, and having missed the opportunity to take three points from Olympique Lyonnais at the Stade Velodrome, Marseille have lost touch with the leaders.
Indeed, with six games to play, the Phoceens are seven points off leaders OL and five behind PSG. Even AS Monaco—who started the season sluggishly—have overtaken OM, and sit in third.
At this point, Marseille have a battle on their hands to even secure a return to the Champions League for next season.
In Nantes, they face opponents for whom the season is ambling steady to a close.
Against a team with little to play for, Marcelo Bielsa will be desperate to demonstrate that OM are still capable of securing a spot in the top three.
