Marseille vs Salzburg PREVIEW & PREDICTION 26/04/2018


Thursday, starting at 20:05, the Marseille – Leipzig match will be played in the UEFA Europa League quarterfinals. One goal I saw in the tour, but I think this time will not be the same.

Yeah, 20:05: Marseille – Leipzig

Marseille has only managed a draw in his own home with Montpelier, although he has not kept his hands on this match. It was precisely because of this result that they were equalized at points of Lyon, but OL has a better golaverage. In the tournament, on the occasion occasions, OM had better statistics in both halves but the result was, as you know from the Germans. For this match Thauvin and Rolando are still uncertain while Mandanda and Rami will most likely miss it. Luiz Gustavo played in the bottom line of Marseille in the last two matches, the above mentioned, and the situation of the host team will most likely see him again. Although Ocampos, Amavi, Lopez and Rami are on a single card to suspend in the next game, we think this game is more important and we will not see them playing shy or too caring, but on the contrary, as usual.

On the other side of Leipzig lost in the Bundesliga score, 1-4 although they ruled in the first instance. Leverkusen has administered one of the toughest corrections this season. “Tauri”, a team formed at the level that is now relatively recent, seem to have accumulated quite a lot of fatigue. While in the UEL they have the first chance to qualify in the semi-finals in this double hung, the Bundesliga is the last place to lead in Europe, one of the qualifiers, however, the sixth position. Willi Orban will return to Leipzig this weekend after being suspended. So did Naby Keita after the Leverkusen shot. Like Marseille, the Germans also have 4 players on one suspension card, namely Sabitzer, Poulsen, Augustin and Demme.

Unfortunately for us, the only direct meeting between the two was the man’s tour. Thus, we will not be able to rely on statistics and this. However, as you have seen, on tour we have witnessed a fairly closed game in which only Werner has managed to make a difference, and this time things should not be the same.

Probable teams:

Marseille: Pele- Sakai, Gustavo, Kamara-Sarr, Anguissa, Sanson, Amavi, Ocampos, Payet-Germain.

Leipzig: Gulacsi – Klostermann, Upamecano, Orban, Bernard – Bruma, Keita, Demme, Forsberg, Poulsen, Werner.

Finally, we consider this game to be quite spectacular, the advantage of the “bulls” on the tour being a dangerous one. Besides, fatigue will tell the word in the case of the two teams and that is why we should see some mistakes on both sides.

PREDICTION: Over 2.5 goals @ 1.62
