Marseille vs Salzburg predictions- Marseille’s last appearance out in the group stages resulted in a missed opportunity to maintain the gap to group leaders and Thursday’s opposition Salzburg. Marseille were unable to beat Konyaspor, resulting in a 1-1 draw and therefore leaving it to the last game in the group stages to secure their place for the Europa League knockout stages. That result has left Marseille in second place on seven points, trailing Salzburg by four points and unable to make up the ground. As they are only two points ahead of third placed Konyaspor they can still fall out of the qualifying places with a defeat here. Salzburg come into this game knowing where they stand in the competition, sealing top spot and have nothing to play in this match up which may have a bearing on the outcome of this match.
Marseille vs Salzburg predictions
Both sides come into this game off the back of really good league form and arguments can be made for both sides to win this match up. Marseille are on a six-game unbeaten streak in all competitions and find themselves in 4th position in their league competition, and are level on points with second placed Lyon. Salzburg themselves are on a superb unbeaten streak. They are nineteen games unbeaten which is a tremendous achievement as they find themselves top of the Austrian Bundesliga. Marseille will look to take advantage of the situation coming into this game though. With nothing to play for, for the away side its likely they could rotate, and the French side will be looking to capitalise and cement their place in the knockout stages. Winning five out of their previous six home games in all competitions will surely breathe confidence into the home side.
With Salzburg likely to rotate ahead of this fixture, it could well be a good time for Marseille to face the Austrian side. Marseille have won five of their previous six home games and will look to improve that run here. However, with Salzburg scoring in each of their last ten away games, its likely to result with some goals in this match up as Marseille go in search of a victory. We fancy Marseille to edge this game out though. With over 2.5 goals resulting in three of Marseille last four home games, Marseille to win and over 2.5 goals looks like the clever bet along with our alternative bet of Marseille to win and both teams to score. Marseille’s danger man is certainly Florian Thauvin, as he seems to have settled to life back in France very well having scored five goals in his last five matches. We are backing him as an anytime goal scorer here. For our correct score Marseille vs Salzburg predictions we are backing Marseille to win 2-1.
