Olympique de Marseille's marathon season has left them "a bit burned out" says Valère Germain, but the striker told his team-mates they must keep firing on all cylinders.

OM's win over OGC Nice at the weekend was their 59th of the season in all competitions, more than any other team in Europe in the current campaign.

However, they still have three matches left: two in Ligue 1 Conforama as they push to finish in the top three, and the UEFA Europa League final in Lyon next week where they face Atletico Madrid.

"We're a little burned out, I can tell you," said Germain, whose team are currently fourth in the league table, a point behind third-placed AS Monaco and two off Olympique Lyonnais in second.

"But we have to be all out and be at 100 percent right to the end. Because it could be a great season, but we could finish with nothing. We can't allow ourselves to slacken off for a second. For the moment, it's good, but we don't have anything."
