Rene Girard says that Lille's clash with Marseille will be one of the games of the Ligue 1 season.

Lille manager Rene Girard is certain that his side's clash with Marseille on Tuesday night will be one of the highlights of the Ligue 1 season.

The two sides go into the match in form after wins at the weekend, with Les Dogues two places and six points ahead of Les Phoceens in second as they both look to close the gap on league leaders Paris Saint-Germain.

"When you have games against Paris, Monaco, Lyon or Marseille you are excited," Girard said in a press conference. "You look at these games at the beginning of the season, these are the ones you look for.

"Top games are always the most interesting ones to play. Marseille is still Marseille, I believe there will be many fans excited about this game.

"For us, this match is a good chance to evaluate where we are in the championship and how we are playing. Playing these kind of teams is interesting, and I would say it's one of the games of the year."

You can get live commentary of Lille's clash with Marseille on Sports Mole tonight from 5.30pm.
