Marseille take on the visitors Eintracht Frankfurt at the Stade Velodrome in the Round 1 of the UEFA Europa League Group H. The match will be played in the eponymous city Marseille on Thursday, September 20th.
Marseille have been looking pretty good in the start of the new season. In their last match particularly Les Phoceens were able to beat Guingamp with a 4-0 score in front of their home crowd. The team of Rudi Garcia often gets positive results and puts all their effort in their home fixtures. Furthermore, they have been scoring a lot lately. In their last two fixtures Les Olympiens scored seven goals and conceded only two. It`s worth noting that even though the key player of the team Dimitri Payet had been playing so-so last season he has been getting positive results for them by himself lately. In their last three matches Marseille beat Guingamp with a 4-0 score, Monaco with a 3-2 score and drew against Stade Rennais with a 2-2 score.

Eintracht Frankfurt on the other hand have been looking horrible in the start of the new season, they have been unable to get positive results. Die Adler have been conceding lots of goals lately but scoring many too. The team of Adi Hitter does not have enough Eurocups experience to show stable performances there so It will be hard for them to adjust for the tough schedule especially considering they often allow a bunch of goals. In their last three matches Eintracht Frankfurt lost to Borussia Dortmund with a 1-3 score, beat Ederbergland with a 5-0 score and lost to Werder Bremen with a 1-2 score.
Marseille and Eintracht Frankfurt have never faced each other before, the upcoming fixture will be the first one between them in history. Les Phoceens have a lot more Eurocups experience than Die Adler so they are the favourite in the lead-up to the match, It is likely that the team of Rudi Garcia will get the three points confidently on Thursday.
Prediction for the match: Marseille to win.
