Marseille boss Elie Baup: 'Lille won't challenge for Ligue 1 title'

Marseille manager Elie Baup says that Lille will not win the Ligue 1 title this season.

Elie Baup is certain that Lille will not be able to challenge Paris Saint-Germain for the Ligue 1 title this season.

Baup's fourth-placed Marseille side travel to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy on Tuesday night, with hosts Lille currently sitting four points behind PSG in second.

"Paris Saint-Germain are the leaders in the championship and will be champions before the end in my opinion," Baup told reporters. "Then there are teams behind them such as Lille.

"There are four or five teams that will fight for the second and third place and Lille is one of them for sure. Lille are consistent and very strategic. The midfielders are important because they know how to control the space.

"The three midfielders are able to manage all of this. This is a team that is very well balanced with a good defence and good strikers. Their play is consistent so it will be complicated."

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