Marseille vs Leipzig: The knockout tie between RB Leipzig and
Marseille will probably be the most closely disputed of the entire quarter-finals of the Europa League.
Due to the fact that both sides are putting all of their efforts into this competition, risking their positioning on their respective domestic leagues.
Marseille travelled to Germany with several problems on their defensive line and they ended up “surviving” the clash against one of the most feared attacks of this competition, although they still lost 1-0.
That result maintains, however, the hopes of the French club alive that, in front of their own crowd, will have a good opportunity to find a way to revert this tie.
Going into this tie, RB Leipzig even seemed to present some arguments to be stronger in this tie.
But their moment of form ends up restraining some gains, besides the fact that, upon the pressure of this challenge, the Germans still present some weaknesses.
But for Marseille, coming back from a disadvantage in 90 minutes also won’t be an easy task, considering that, upon their needed offensive trend, Leipzig will have more space to score.
On the weekend, Marseille conceded a goalless draw against Montpellier, which made them be caught in 3rd place by Lyon, being now at risk of failing to qualify for the Champions League through Ligue 1.
However, RB Leipzig did worse, being battered at home 1-4 against Bayer Leverkusen, which was a clear sign that their complete focus is on this Europa League’s tie, since they are unable to finish within the Bundesliga’s top 4.
Marseille vs Leipzig – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Between two sides that are putting all their efforts into this UEFA competition, this match might be lived with some anxiety, on the quest for goals that ensure the teams the qualification onto the next round.
This should be an entertaining match for us to follow on this Thursday night.
