Marseille´s problems have worsened with a two-game ban for defender Taye Taiwo.

Taiwo picked up the ban after being sent off during his side´s defeat at the hands of St Etienne last Saturday.

His absence will further weaken a side that is struggling in Ligue 1 although the Mediterranean club has made an impressive start to its Champions League campaign, winning games against Besiktas and Liverpool.
