"He has been training well and I will assess with the team doctor if he can play," Benitez told a news conference at the Stade Velodrome.

Higuain missed two matches because of a hamstring injury but played the last 22 minutes of Napoli's 2-0 defeat at AS Roma in Serie A on Friday,

Marseille are bottom of Group F having lost their first two matches while Napoli won one and lost the other.
