Match : Marseille vs RB Leipzig
Competition : UEFA Europe League
Time / Date : 22:05h / 12 April 2018
Venue : Stade Velodrome
They lose with only one goal in Germany and here will hope to use home advantage to overturn the deficit.At home in Europe League in last five games they recorded three clean sheets.In all competition at Stade Velodrome they have only lost twice there all season in all competitions, winning 16 of their 24 overall games. This includes draws against both Monaco and PSG, so they can definitely perform against the top opposition as well.
Leipzig lose from Leverkusen at home in last game with 4:1 on Monday and lost Naby Keita.This is not the perfect way to came to France.
Red Bulls made impressive run in the competition since they dropped out from Champions League group stage where finish 3rd.They stood firm to overcome Napoli on goal-aggregate in the round of 32 and then Zenit 3-2 aggregare in the round of 16. They are unbeaten in the two away games during the period having beaten Napoli 3-1 and a 1-1 draw at Russia.

Last week’s 1-0 win for RB Leipzig was the first ever meeting between these two sides.
In the first match we saw only one goal from these two teams, this match I expect to be different taking into consideration the offensive football that they practice.
As I’ve already mentioned though, Marseille are very impressive at home. Meanwhile, RB Leipzig have lost eight times away from home this season, so a home win does look likely
