Marseille vs Villarreal Match Preview and Prediction

Marseille vs Villarreal: Marseille and Villarreal square off in the first leg of their round-of-16 match in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday night at Stade Orange Velodrome, following a goal apiece over the weekend. Marseille will want to build on an outstanding three-game winning streak in all competitions.

Along the way, they have scored twelve goals. One win in the run was a 3-1 triumph over Shakhtar Donetsk, a Ukrainian heavyweight team, in the second leg of the Europa League knockout phase playoffs.

In their last two Ligue 1 encounters, Jean Louis Gasset’s team defeated teams like Montpellier and Clermont with nine goals. As a result, they rose to the top of the league table in seventh place. Right now, third place is only six points away.

After a terrible start to the La Liga season, Villarreal has also turned around. El Submarino Amarillo has won their last seven league games. Along the way, they have managed four victories, one of which was a 5-3 victory in the Catalan capital against teams like Barcelona.
