Group D is the closest in this season’s Champions League and both Spurs and Marseille head into the game with hopes of qualifying.
Tottenham head to Marseille for a vital game on matchday six of the Champions League on Tuesday night. Antonio Conte’s men have secured at least third place in Group D but need three points at the Stade Velodrome to secure the top spot.
The hosts meanwhile know a victory against the north Londoners books them a place in the last-16 of the competition.
The French side was beaten 2-0 on their visit to north London on matchday one and are outsiders.
Spurs’ Champions League campaign has been underwhelming despite them going into the final round of fixtures with a good chance of topping the group.
A seemingly favorable draw meant the north Londoners were confident of qualifying for the last 16, yet there have been disappointing showings against both Eintracht Frankfurt and Sporting Clube.
Now faced with a chance to progress if they avoid defeat, Antonio Conte will undoubtedly focus on not getting beaten, and backing a tight game in the south of France should be the apparent selection.
