Igor Tudor (coach of OM) said in a press conference that no team can be the favorite against PSG. Are PSG favorites on Sunday?

"Tudor has a lot of class, but also mischief. Are we favorites? I do not think that there are favorites in this kind of match. I can't say that Marseille are the favorite here, or that we are. To be the favorite it would have been better to be in a different dynamic. The way we finished the matches against Bayern and Lille gave us a lot of hope for what we can do over the duration of this game. It will be necessary to have a very, very high level of play and to challenge Marseille who will be carried by their public (no PSG fans will be allowed at the Velodrome) and who are on a good dynamic at home. We will have to raise our game and be better than we were a few weeks ago (in the Coupe de France defeat)."

Mbappe was absent in the Cup but he will be available tomorrow. Can his return change the outcome of the game?

"We will have to do better than we did in the Coupe de France as we didn't succeed back then. That is to say, win duels, get out of the Marseille pressure, and have more play in deeper areas up the pitch. Everything that we lacked in that match."

"Kylian Mbappe's presence will give us this depth, but he shouldn't be the only one to bring it to us. If he is alone, it will be easier for the opponent to control us. Kylian can make the difference on his own with his play, but other players will have to do it too."
