2021-22 will be the year of the near-miss for Marseille, as the club came close - but not close enough - to Ligue 1 glory, against a Paris Saint-Germain side that looked at various points like it was trying to sabotage their own prospects.

The Parc des Princes outfit seem to be even stronger this term, which might make a title fight moot - but Marseille's particularly pugilistic approach to any challenge means they will not die wondering in their pursuit of glory.

Predicted Marseille starting XI: Blanco; Mbemba, Gigot, Balerdi; Clauss, Rongier, Guendouzi, Tavares; Sanchez, Milik, Payet.

PositionNantes roster
Goalkeepers Lafont, Descamps, Petrić
Defenders Fábio, Girotto, Pallois, Traoré, Castelletto, Voisine, Corchia, Sylla
Midfielders Chirivella, Moutoussamy, Blas, Sissoko, Yepié Yepié, Simon, Merlin, Achi, Ba, Doucet, Manvelyan
Forwards Coco, Mohamed, Bamba, Alfamah, Guessand, Ndilu

Was the Coupe de France the peak for Nantes? They'll certainly hope not - a busy season awaits them, and if they can weather juggling all the fixtures, they have the chance to write a brand new chapter in their rich history.

Marseille will present a curious acid test for their capabilities this year - and despite the lack of home advantage, they'll hope they can turn this road trip into a success by the full-time whistle.

Predicted Nantes starting XI: Lafont; Castelletto, Girotto, Pallois; Coco, Blas, Moutoussamy, Chirivella, Merlin; Mohamed, Simon.
