Marseille take on the visitors Salzburg at “Stade Velodrome” in the gameweek six of the UEFA Europa League Group stage. The match will be played on Thursday, December 7th.
Marseille come up to the Eurocup battle with six-clash unbeaten series, having gained three victories and three draws during that period. Last weekend “Les Olympiens” earned 0:0 draw vs. Montpellier on the road in the France’s Ligue 1 where after 16 rounds played they occupy the fourth place in the standings with 32 points taken. On the eve of the final fight in the UEFA Europa League Group stage the French club is sitting on the second position in Group I table with seven points collected and 4-4 goal difference. To promote to the Play Offs it would be enough for Marseille to gain a draw in the forthcoming Thursday clash. Taking into account the fact that the French failed only once in 11 recent home matches alongside with eight triumphs and two draws gained, it is quite a real task to fulfill.

Salzburg have not been beaten across 19 games in a row, having earned 12 wins and seven draws since the 10th of September. In the Austrian Tipico Bundesliga the team is currently sharing the first-second places in the standings with Sturm Graz, having picked up 41 points after 18 clashes played. In regards to the UEFA Europa League, Salzburg have not only secured themselves promoting to the spring stage of the competition but also the first position in the group table, currently settling there with 11 points collected and 7-1 goal difference after five battles conducted.
The Austrian side won the first-lap fight with 1:0 scoreline. The visitors have no goals set for the upcoming clash while Marseille need at least not to lose it. I believe that Salzburg won’t like to break their undefeated streak but won’t do their best to upset their guests either which means that a draw would be an optimal outcome of the game.
Prediction for the match: Draw.
