Marseille – Leipzig Europa League 12 April 2018

Marseille-Leipzig Europa League

Europa League Marseille-Leipzig

At the Marseille Velodrome the OM, host, hosts the Germans of Red Bull Leipzig, for the return of the Europa League quarters. the 1 to 0 of the outward journey makes the return match still open and exciting.

Olimpyque Marseille, a French team coached by former Roma Rudi Garcia, lost 1-0 to Germany at the end of a match where the result was not true for all occasions created by the French. Little precision in the goal left the score of goals scored at 0, complicating the situation in view of the return. The 0 to 0 seen in Ligue 1 with the Montpellier, in addition, is the proof of how there is something that does not go on offense, and that it is urgent to put things back in place in view of Thursday. Probably, the goalkeeper Mandanda, the former defender of Inter Rolando, the former Milan Rami and, in midfield, the jewel Thauvin will not be part of the contest. Also for this reason, there are doubts about the form of play, where it is unknown if the former West Ham Payet will play next to Mitroglou in a classic 4 – 4 – 2, or on the trocar, in a 4 – 2 – 3 – 1. Certainly, the former Milan Ocampos and the Guinean Sarr are favorites for a place from the first minute.
Red Bull Lipsia, the German team coached by young Hasenhuttl, was the winner in the first leg thanks to the talented Timo Werner. After 4 wins and 3 draws came a nasty defeat against Bayer Leverkusen (1 – 4 the final result) that made the Germans slip out of the first 4 places that are worth the access in the Champions League. Although there is more than one thought for the head, the semifinal goal is more valid than ever. There will be suffering, however, against a Marseille that has been wrong several times in the first leg, risking to equalize. But with the 1 to 0 final of the first leg, however, you can also count on away goals. If the form, such as the 4 – 4 – 2, does not seem to be in question, there are many doubts about the interpreters. With the untouchable Werner, Augustin seems to be favored for a shirt from the first minute. Kampl and Forsberg are booked for a place in midfield.

Marseille-Leipzig Prediction

On Thursday’s match, there is a great balance, as both teams want to pass the round. Marseille can count on the home factor, while at Leipzig a goal would be enough to put the whole match uphill. Thinking about how the game can be exciting, we are inclined for a goal. Having to give indications for a fixed result, instead, we opt for a 1X double in favor of the French, unsafe, however, to 100% on the passage of the turn.
