Marseille defender Renato Civelli has urged his side to guard against complacency if they are to fulfil their objective of European qualification.
The Argentine, who has found himself back in favour with Albert Emon following an injury to Julien Rodriguez, believes Saturday's match against Lorient could hold the key to the club's season.
After a poor recent run, a 3-0 win over Nice last time out has increased optimism amongst the club's support and a forthcoming clash against fellow European hopefuls Lille is being billed as decisive in the race for a UEFA Champions League qualification place.
But Civelli told his club's official website: "We have to go on winning to maintain our form. Everybody is already talking about Lille but first we have to defeat Lorient.
"We are only two points off third place and second is still possible. But we must be careful because if we don't play well against Lorient we could also still finish tenth.
"We can finish the season well provided we don't throw away points like we did earlier in the season."
