Eric Bailly should be fit to face Sporting Lisbon in a boost to Marseille as they seek to pick up their first points of the UEFA Champions League group stage on Tuesday.

Bailly, who is on loan from Manchester United, suffered a thigh injury in the 1-0 Champions League loss to Eintracht Frankfurt on 13 September, but after missing the 1-1 draw with Rennes and the Côte d'Ivoire's brace of internationals, he should be available for the game behind closed doors at the Orange Vélodrome.

 

Bailly travelled to Angers for Friday's 3-0 win but did not come off the bench. Sead Kolasinac, who picked up an injury in the final training session ahead of the game at the Stade Raymond Kopa, will undergo tests during the weekend to determine his fitness.

 

Marseille currently sit bottom of Group D following defeats in their first two matches.
