N'Diaye missing for Marseille but Valbuena fit

Olympique de Marseille will be without defender Leyti N'Diaye for at least their Group F opener against FC Spartak Moskva due to a shoulder injury but Mathieu Valbuena has been passed fit.

Olympique de Marseille centre-back Leyti N'Diaye will miss the start of their UEFA Champions League campaign after being ruled out for three weeks with a shoulder injury.

The 25-year-old has broken into the OM side this season after several campaigns away on loan but hurt his shoulder in training last week with the Senegalese national team and will definitely miss Wednesday's Group F opener against FC Spartak Moskva, while remaining a doubt for the trip to Chelsea FC on 28 September. Hilton is tipped to start in N'Diaye's place.

Meanwhile, Marseille winger Mathieu Valbuena has been passed fit for Sunday night's Ligue 1 encounter with AS Monaco FC despite limping out of France's 2-0 win in Bosnia and Herzegovina on Tuesday with a left ankle problem.
