Marseille team, seems in a very good form this season with 3 victories in Ligue 1. It defeated: Valenciennes, Guincamp, Evian. The team faced Monaco at home, but it couldn't defeat it. After that it faced Toulouse and had a tough match, which it couldn't win as well. Thus, Marseille now fights for third position in Ligue 1 as Monaco and PSG are on a totally different level. Marseille will play in full squad, with the only exception of  Souleymane Diawara woh is absent.
Arsenal, on the other hand, started the season with a loss 3-1 to Aston Villa. However, after this loss, the team played well and could make 5 straight victories. Arsenal has an excelent attack and strikers Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey are in their best form. The team has played two games till now in the Champions League, and it made a dominant 5-0 aggregate win over Fenerbahce. However, the team is facing a lot of problems. The midfielders are: Chamberlain, Diaby, Arteta, Rosicky and Cazorla. Mesut Ozil,the new signing in the team, has already found himself in the team and will be a nice add to the team. Strikers: Podolski and Sanogo will miss the match, while Giroud has a knock but will have to play.
