There were two Red Bull sponsored teams in European competitions this season and many expected RB Leipzig to be the best among them. However, that wasn’t to be so as the Germans were eliminated from the Europa League at the last round by no other team than the Dmitri Payet inspired Marseille. If the French men eliminated Salzburg here, they would surely not be friends with the popular energy drink brand.
Marseille won the first leg 2-0 to put the Austrians under pressure to mount a come back yet again, but they are no strangers to comebacks. In the quarterfinals, they trailed 4-2 from the first leg against Lazio and even fell 1-0 behind at home, yet they mounted a shocking comeback to win 4-1 and eliminate the Italians 6-5 on aggregate, can they pull that off here again?
The Austrians have not been defeated at home in any competition since November 2016 and they have played 26 home games since then, winning 19 of them. They also have five wins from their last seven home games in this competition this season.
Marseille played a 1-1 draw against Angers at the weekend to make it six games without tasting defeat for them, with four of those matches ending in victory for them. They have also won four of their last 6 away games, however, they have only one win from their eight away games in this competition this season, losing four of those matches including their last visit to this stadium in the group stage.
