Marseille might be struggling to find any domestic form this season and they sit eleventh in the Ligue 1 table. However, they are faring well in the Europa League, with their two wins and two draws putting Gennaro Gattuso’s side in the box seat to reach the last sixteen stage. They will want to make sure of top spot and they’re warm favourites to overcome Ajax.

The Stade Velodrome has been something of a fortress considering that Marseille have won three and drawn two of their five games played at home this term, scoring seven goals and conceding just once. Many Europa League accumulator bets might include the French side, especially when you consider how much that Ajax are struggling.

Having drawn with Marseille and AEK Athens in their first two games, it has been successive reverses against Brighton, with the team as low as twelfth in the Dutch Eredivisie right now. Away from home, things have been tough domestically on the road, with three draws and three defeats occurring.

Based on the fact that the teams played out a 3-3 draw last time out, we can see a high-scoring encounter. Perhaps the best way forward is to back Marseille to win the game and both sides to find the net. The form of Steven Bergwijn at least gives the visitors the chance to score, even if it ends up being a consolation strike.
