Match Preview

Winger Andre Ayew remains confident Marseille can still qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League but accepts three points against MSK Zilina is a must.

Didier Deschamps' men have lost both matches in Group F - at home to Spartak Moscow and away to Chelsea - and need to see off the Slovakian side to return to the race for a top-two finish.

Ayew is aware the pressure is on but is optimistic the Ligue 1 champions have the quality to succeed. He told www.ligue1.fr: "We haven't made the best of starts to the Champions League and now we need the points and we're going to need those points against Zilina, who will also be looking for a result, because they lost their two opening games as well.

"We'll go into the game as favourites but it's still going to be a tough match. Everyone will have plenty of motivation and desire.

"We must win this game. We want to do something in the Champions League this season and we're playing at home in front of our supporters. Hopefully we can do it."

As for qualification for the next stage, he added: "It's not over yet. There's still a chance to qualify so we need to believe in our abilities, believe in the coach and believe in our potential too.

"We have a great squad of experienced players and young players, so yes, we can still qualify but it's going to be very difficult and very tough to get good results against everybody, but we still believe in ourselves.

"We're going to keep on fighting and I hope we're going to make it."

Zilina, like Marseille, are likely to see this match as a chance to pick up points after defeats to Chelsea and Spartak but midfielder Emil Rilke has warned it will be another tough game at the Stade Velodrome.

He said: "We certainly don't view Marseille as an easier opponent. At this stage of the Champions League all the teams are very strong.

"I would be very happy to take a point in France and score a goal."

Match Report

Diawara the hero for French Champions A solitary Souleymane Diawara strike was enough to earn Marseille their first points in this season's Champions League at the expense of MSK Zilina. Didier Deschamps' side were dominant for much of the game against Slovakian minnows but had only the defender's second-half header to show for their efforts. And the visitors could easily have snatched a point, with Steve Mandanda making two fine saves to preserve his side's advantage. Each team will feel they were harshly denied a penalty in the first half, with Zilina's Momodou Ceesay the first to be deprived when he was clearly floored by Diawara. The Gambia striker's frustrations may have been increased when he was awarded a meaningless free-kick in midfield two minutes later after going down under minimal contact from Stephane Mbia. In between times Andre-Pierre Gignac forced a good low save from Zilina keeper Martin Dubravka, who then kept out a similar effort from Andre Ayew. Summer signing Gignac was denied by an even better stop from Dubravka in the 13th minute, the keeper diving full length and showing a strong left hand to parry away a well-struck drive. The Marseille pressure continued and Cesar Azpilicueta, Lucho Gonzalez and Mathieu Valbuena combined fluidly down the right but from the latter's cross, Ayew sliced his volley tamely wide. And the hosts had their own penalty shout on the half-hour as Gignac's effort was well blocked by Lubomir Guldan and Gabriel Heinze's follow-up struck the outstretched arm of Jozef Piacek. A trademark Taye Taiwo strike hit Stanislav Angelovic and rebounded almost to the centre circle before midfielder Stefan Zosak had Zilina's one shot of the opening period. His 30-yard effort, though, was always curling over. Marseille almost broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time when Brandao glanced Lucho's corner across the face of goal, Gignac nodded back across and a falling Brandao hooked over from less than a yard under pressure from Ceesay. Valbuena was harshly booked for simulation after being taken down by Angelovic's fair ball-first challenge in the penalty area but his team took the lead from the resulting corner - wrongly awarded after the ball went out off Gignac. Lucho delivered the corner and Diawara's header was fumbled into the net by the hitherto impressive Dubravka. Bizarrely, Taiwo was booked for pretending to shoot the goalscorer with the corner flag during the celebration. Ceesay was twice off target as Zilina sought an equaliser and Mandanda then saved bravely from Tomas Majtan. The France stopper had to be at his best once more to tip away Robert Jez's left-foot drive, though he got away with dropping the resulting corner. Heinze blocked Jez's shot as goalmouth action was at a premium thereafter, though the UEFA match delegate's eye may have been caught by an incident in which Zilina's Vladimir Leitner appeared to be targeted with a laser pen while taking a corner. Zilina substitute Tomas Oravec flashed a last-minute effort over the bar but Marseille held on.
