Marseille striker Andre-Pierre Gignac will miss the UEFA Champions League clash with Chelsea on Wednesday.
The 25-year-old France international has not recovered from the groin injury he suffered two weeks ago and will have to watch the Stade Velodrome clash from the sidelines.
Marseille and the Blues have already qualified for the knockout rounds of the tournament but manager Didier Deschamps confirmed Gignac will miss the final group game.
He told the club's official website: "He is injured and has not been able to train normally yesterday (Monday) because he still feels some pain."
Brazilian forward Brandao is expected to deputise for the French outfit, and L'OM will be looking for revenge after they lost 2-0 at Stamford Bridge in the reverse fixture.
