Marseille v Toulouse: Preview

This could be the weekend when Marseille's faint title hopes are finally extinguished, but midfielder Morgan Amalfitano reckons second place would still be a pretty impressive achievement.

OM host Toulouse in Ligue 1 tomorrow knowing defeat would crown Paris St Germain champions and a draw as good as give Carlo Ancelotti's men the title.

A win might only delay the outcome for a day, with PSG, who travel to third-placed Lyon on Sunday, seven points in front with three games to play.

Asked if he thought about the title, Amalfitano told the Marseille website: ``Frankly, no. The goal was to finish in the top five. We have already won in that respect.

``To finish second, if we manage it, will be a very good result. We have been on the podium throughout the year.''

A win would leave Marseille on the brink of sealing second spot as they go into the weekend four points clear of Lyon.

``At this stage of the season, whether it is Toulouse or another club, we have to win,'' Amalfitano added.

They are certainly in decent form, with five wins and a draw in their last six games in the league, while the goal they conceded in the 2-1 win over Bastia last time out was the first they have let in in eight.

Tenth-placed Toulouse have rather less to play for, with Europe well out of reach and relegation not a possibility either.

And their midfielder Etienne Capoue also reckons Marseille should be pleased with their campaign.

``They are second and are always used to challenging at the top of the table,'' he told the club website.

``Paris are untouchable this season, but Marseille have had a good season. Paris and Marseille are the two top teams in our league and they have confirmed it again.''
