Baup targets title tilt

7 October 2012 04:49

Marseille coach Elie Baup has urged his men to display their worth in Sunday's top-of-the-table clash against Paris Saint-Germain.

After falling to a 4-1 defeat to Valenciennes in Ligue 1 last Saturday, Marseille returned to winning ways with a 5-1 thrashing of AEL Limassol in the Europa League.

Baup, 57, has pressed his charges to keep their chins up if they are to secure a memorable victory against Carlo Ancelotti's men.

"Since Thursday, I've been thinking of Paris Saint-Germain every second," Baup joked to reporters.

"We are looking forward to it."

Baup says his side will disregard the high-profile players of PSG and will instead focus on their own performances.

"We have this subconscious desire to project ourselves, and challenge on an even footing at the top of the table, showing our collective strength as a team," he said.

"With their financial prowess and recruitment of great players, Paris Saint-Germain remain a force to be reckoned with, but during a game we should be treated as equals.

"I'm not fixated on Zlatan Ibrahimovic's performance, what I'm interested in is our game, our players and our ability to form a great team against our opponents on Sunday."

The league frontrunners have already been hit by a number of notable absentees, with Joey Barton suspended and injured duo Rafidine Abdullah and Kassim Abdallah set to miss out.
