UEFA Europa League MARSEILLE – RB LIPSIA
Marseille lost the first leg against RB Leipzig 1-0, decided by a goal by Timo Werner. The French club will be called to start the return match with caution. In the event that it suffered a network, in fact, it would then be forced to mark at least three. In the second half, however, the show should increase: both formations, moreover, have an offensive mentality.
Rudi Garcia seems willing to bet on Florian Thauvin, Dimitri Payet, Lucas Ocampos and Konstantinos Mitroglou to try to hit a great comeback, but his team is currently not very solid in the non-possession phase. Steve Mandanda, Adil Rami and Rolando have not been in good shape for a few days. The physical problems of the goalkeeper and the two central defenders are creating problems for the former Roma coach. Marseille, therefore, will probably struggle once again to show the solidity it would need.
The RB Leipzig will have the opportunity to often become dangerous, relying on the movements of Marcel Sabitzer and Emil Forsberg on the two sides of midfield, as well as those of Jean-Kévin Augustin and the aforementioned Werner in attack.
