Motta, Bodmer out of PSGs Marseille trip

06 October 2012 04:18

Midfielders Thiago Motta and Mathieu Bodmer and forward Ezequiel Lavezzi have all been declared unfit for Paris Saint-Germain's clash with arch rivals and Ligue 1 leaders Marseille on Sunday.

Motta and Lavezzi have been sidelined by back and adductor muscle injuries respectively, while Bodmer is pursuing his recovery from a left thigh problem.

PSG will also be without suspended centre-back Mamadou Sakho. The France international's absence means Alex is likely to partner Brazilian compatriot Thiago Silva in the centre of defence.

Marseille are three points above second-place PSG ahead of Sunday's game at Stade Velodrome.
