Marseille's Ghanaian duo Andre and Jordan Ayew have been caught in a fix as their biggest supporters group wants their miserable run to continue on Wednesday.
With Marseille already out of the Ligue 1 running, the fans group are desperate to stop bitter rivals Paris St Germain winning the title and have called on their club to lose to Montpellier to strengthen the leadersâ€™ position.
Montpellier, who have a superior goal difference, andPSGÂ are on 63 points with seven games left, while Marseille are 23 points off the pace in ninth after losing 2-1 atÂ PSGÂ on Sunday.
â€œLetâ€™s give Montpellier the best chance possible and stopPSGÂ becoming champions this year,â€ the South Winners 87 group said on their website (www.sw87.com).
â€œLetâ€™s let Montpellier win, letâ€™s not forget the lessons of history!â€
Marseille fans still wince at the memory of the 1999 title race when PSGâ€™s 3-2 defeat to Girondins Bordeaux in the last round of matches denied Marseille the championship.
