Marseille coach Elie Baup rejects talk of a crisis following successive defeats to Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund.

Marseille coach Elie Baup has insisted that he will not panic despite suffering successive defeats prior to the international break.

L'OM suffered their first home defeat in Ligue 1 this season at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain two weeks ago, five days after a 3-0 loss at Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

Baup believes that the spirit in his camp is still strong despite the double setback, backing Marseille to respond this evening against an improving Nice at the Stade Velodrome.

He told L'Equipe: "This is not a crisis at all. I have continued to work to prepare for the match to come.

"The pressure is part of my job, three of my colleagues in Ligue 1 have already been removed.

"When you win, everything is swept away. But for me the atmosphere has not changed."

Marseille sit fourth in Ligue 1 ahead of tonight's clash, three points and two places ahead of Nice.
