Marseille vs RB Leipzig
Tip: 3+ (over 2,5 goals) — Odd: 1,68
FT: 5:2 (WON) (WON) (WON)
Second leg between Marseille and RB Leipzig. In first match in Germany, home team was better and won with 1:0, so they have solid advantage here. In this match, I believe in one interesting match with goals.
Marseille is playing attacking football and here I expect home team to attack from the start. Their attack line is really strong and good news for them, they will have back Thauvin for this game. The worst part is defense and for this match they will be without three standard and important players from defensively line. They will be without their first goalkeeper Mandanda (first goalkeeper 28/0) and without their standard central defenders: Rami (defender 30/1) and Rolando (defender 27/1). For sure big blow for them and for their defense, they will be in problems in that part, but I believe in their attack, at home ground they are able to score few goals against everyone.
RB Leipzig have solid advantage, but I doubt that they will defend here. That will be really bad for them, so I expect a good, offensive football from the visitors. Home team with 3 important missings, so they can take an advantage and to score here. With one scored goal they will be really close to the next stage.
They will be without: Halstenberg (defender 15/2), Laimer (midfielder 20/0) and Lookman (midfielder 6/1). Werner (attacker 27/11) is rated like doubtful, but it is almost clear that he will be available for this important match.
To be honest, I think that both sides have much better chances to reach their place in Champions League next season via local league. Both still have chances for that. But, of course both will want the semis here. Marseille is very dangerous at home, but with defensively problems. RB Leipzig can be really dangerous, just to mention that in group stage they won with 4:1 against Monaco in France. All in all I expect both sides to play attacking football and I expect 3 or more goals at the end. Good luck !
