Marseille – RB Leipzig : Preview & Prediction
Valiants but beaten in Germany (1-0) with a cascade of wounded (Rami, Thauvin, Rolando, Mandanda …), the Olympians will have to get their place in the last square of the Europa League at the Vélodrome. Good news for Rudi Garcia, the indispensable Thauvin will be back this Thursday night to face Leipzig. Held in check by Montpellier (0-0) last Sunday, the Marseille will however have to propose something other than during their last performances if they intend to stagger the opposing defense. Dangerous offensively but far from always defensive, Red Bull Leipzig could very well implode in France, like a few days before the Bayer Leverkusen (defeat 1-4). Will the Olympians put all the ingredients to get their qualification?
The RB Leipzig lost in a worrying manner (1-4) against Bayer Leverkusen last weekend, as part of the German championship.
Marseille has won 6 of its 7 Europa League games played at the Vélodrome this season.
Rudi Gacia will be able to count on Thauvin’s return to liven up his attack and will still line up a convincing Luiz Gustavo-Kamara hinge in the first leg.
Marseille has delivered the best parts of its season at the Vélodrome in the Europa League this season and can count on a public in turmoil to seek his qualification. Inconstant and inexperienced, the Germans of Red Bull Leipzig could very well fold in France. Success and qualification of OM!
