Match : Marseille vs Salzburg Competition : UEFA Europe League Time / Date : 22:05h / 26 April 2018 Venue : Stade Velodrome
Marseille are unbeaten at home in this season’s Europa League carrying over from the qualification stages. They won 7 of their 8 games at the Vélodrome and the only team to deny them a victory is their semifinal opponent.
Salzburg have a decent away record in this season’s Europa League. They were unbeaten until the defeat at Lazio with 3 wins and 3 draws from the previous 6 games. The important point is that they scored 2 goals in the three away knockout games.
These two sides met in the group stages of this season’s Europa League, with Salzburg winning 1-0 at home and getting a goalless draw at the Orange Velodrome.
Marseille’s attacking prowess has gone from strength to strength this season, and their 5-1 thrashing of Lille on Saturday illustrates that perfectly. In fact, they have scored 13 goals in their last three competitive games, including a 5-2 win over RB Leipzig in the quarter finals. However, they have conceded five goals in these three games too, and they’re facing a Salzburg side who aren’t too shabby in front of goal themselves.
