Marseille coach Didier Deschamps has a number of injury and suspension concerns ahead of tomorrow's visit of Bayern Munich. Here, Sports Mole examines their chances of making their home advantage count.

Marseille coach Didier Deschamps has a number of selection issues to face prior to his side's Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich.

Deschamps will be without goalkeeper Steve Mandanda through suspension, while Souleymane Diawara is ruled out with a knee problem.

Striker Loic Remy has also been rated doubtful for the clash because of a persistent knee complaint.

The game is likely to come too soon for Bayern midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger, who has been struggling with a knee injury.

However, Thomas Muller has been deemed fit and should start in a wide attacking role at Stade Velodrome.

Tomorrow's match will be the first official meeting between the two sides.

Current form:

Marseille: LLLLLD
Bayern: WWWWDW

Possible lineups:

Marseille: Bracigliano; Azpilicueta, M'Bia, N'Koulou, Morel; Diarra, Cheyrou, Amalfitano; Valbuena, Brandao, A. Ayew

Bayern: Neuer; Lahm, Boateng, Badstuber, Alaba; Luiz Gustavo, Kroos; Robben, Müller, Ribery; Gomez 

Sports Mole says: 1-2
