Olympique Marseille will host Strasbourg on Saturday - Ligue 1.

In Ligue 1 action this weekend, Olympique Marseille will host Strasbourg at the Orange Velodrome on Saturday night as the 2021-22 French top-flight season concludes.

Marseille have had a tough couple of weeks, crashing out of the UEFA Europa Conference League in the semifinals before surrendering their automatic UEFA Champions League spot to the in-form Monaco side. They were beaten 2-0 by Stade Rennais in their last game and failed to impress offensively, managing no shots on target.

The Olympians sit third in the league standings, with 68 points from 37 games. A point this weekend would guarantee them at least a UEFA Champions League qualification spot.

Strasbourg, meanwhile, have been one of the most improved teams in the French top flight this season and remain on the hunt for European football. They picked up a 1-0 win over Clermont Foot in their last game, with Adrien Thomasson scoring the sole goal of the game with an outstanding header in the first half.

The away side sit fifth in the Ligue 1 table, with 63 points from 37 games, and are now one win away from securing a place in Europe next season.
