Salzburg vs Marseille: Preview and Predictions

Salzburg vs Marseille Predictions-UEFA Europa League 3rd May 2018

Salzburg vs Marseille
Europa League Semifinal Second Leg
Date: Thursday, 3rd May 2018
Kick-off at 20:05 UK/ 21:05 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Salzburg).

An all-round performance from Marseille earn them a solid 2-0 win from the first leg to take it to Salzburg. But the Austrians had overturned a similar deficit in the previous round by cancelling a 4-2 win at Lazio with a 4-1 win at their home turf. This is why it is not game over and we may expect another dramatic turnaround when these teams meet again on Thursday.

Salzburg vs Marseille: Key Stats

Salzburg are unbeaten in their 7 home games in the Europa League this season, 5 wins and 2 draws. They kept clean sheets in 5 of those and three of those wins came by 3 or more goal margins.

OM have an unbeaten home record in the competition, but they managed only 1 win from their 8 away games so far (3 draws and 4 losses). But, they have not conceded more than 1 goal in any of those.

Salzburg vs Marseille: Head-to-head

Three meetings between the two sides so far, all in this season. The teams now share a win, draw and loss and all games recorded under 2.5 goals.

Salzburg’s overall record against French Ligue 1 clubs is 3 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses from 7 games. At home, they won 2 and lost 1 of the three so far.

Marseille’s overall record against Austrian clubs is 3 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses from 7 games. They won 1 and lost 2 of the three away visits to Austria.

Salzburg vs Marseille: Prediction

It is too early to write off Salzburg from this contest as their win ratio at home is impressive.

Marseille have some match winners at their disposal, Dimitri Payet is arguable the pick of the pack.

But, I believe the Austrians have an upper hand in this fixture especially after a dramatic win over Lazio to overturn a 2 goal defeat at this same venue.
