Apollon Limassol vs Marseille
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday 4th October 2018
Kick off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Tsirion Stadium (Limassol).
Apollon Limassol will be the underdogs when they take on Ligue 1 team Marseille in this Europa League Group H game.
Apollon Limassol lost their opening game against Lazio in Italy but the score was very close and they were only defeated 2-1 earning some plaudits in the local press. They will want to build on that when returning home to Cyprus and give Marseille a difficult game. If they are to do anything in this group they will have to pick up points at home.
Marseille are bottom of the group after their shock 2-1 loss at home to Eintracht Frankfurt and so this game has become a must win for them, to get back on track.
The bookmakers see the game as Marseille being the favourites and they can be quoted as evens to win the game. Apollon Limassol are as much as 4.00 (3/1) to get the home win.

Apollon Limassol vs Marseille: Prediction
Marseille need to group together because they have one of the best if not the best team in this group and they shouldn’t be exiting at this stage. This is a must win game for them because the other teams will have the chance to widen that gap. The danger for Marseille is they have to play a double header with Lazio and they won’t want their survival in the Europa League to come down to those two games.
Our bet then is to see Marseille get the win. It will be a hard fought game and the score may be very close, away win.
