Playmaker Nasri is fit to face Liverpool

December 10, 2007

Samir Nasri returns to the Marseille squad for Tuesday's crunch Champions League tie against Liverpool.

The France playmaker missed Saturday's 2-0 victory over Monaco in Ligue 1 as he was recovering from an ankle injury suffered during his side's 2-1 defeat to Besiktas in matchday five.

Defender Ronald Zubar is also back in the squad after recovering from injury and could start at right-back, but forward Salim Arrache is missing.

Striker Djibril Cisse and midfielder Boudewijn Zenden, who both left Anfield last summer to join Marseille, are named in coach Eric Gerets' 20-man party for the Stade Velodrome clash.
