Shakhtar Donetsk vs Marseille: Match Preview and Prediction

Shakhtar Donetsk vs Marseille: Shakhtar’s last group stage match loss against FC Porto eliminated the team from the Champions League, sending them to the Europa League. At Volksparkstadion on Thursday, the club will welcome Marseille in their Europa League pre-quarterfinal match.

Shakhtar had lost two of the previous five games and was without a win in four of them. Seven of the previous ten games for Marseille in all competitions saw them win without a loss, with the lone setback occurring in a shootout.
There have been goals under 2.5 feet in six of Marseille’s past seven games and three of Shakhtar’s past five.

Marseille has been playing well lately in all competitions. They have fought some of the top European clubs and have gone undefeated in seven of their last ten games. They advanced to the Champions League knockout stages and faced Shakhtar after finishing second in Group B.

The squad leader, Shakhtar, has struggled in all contests recently. They had lost four of five games. Marseille has also won two of its previous four away games against tougher clubs than Shakhtar. However, Shakhtar had lost four of their six home games. Shakhtar may have a tough test on Thursday.

Shakhtar Donetsk vs Marseille: Betting Analysis

Shakhtar won both of their previous matches against each other, scoring two goals apiece. Their most recent encounter was during a Europa League match in 2009.

The lackluster performance of Shakhtar at home, despite playing teams like Velež Mostar and Hradec Kralove, makes us lean toward Marseille, the French team. Despite the fact that Shakhtar has won their past meetings, we are going with Marseille to prevail and would like to recommend it as the primary betting choice for this game.

It is also noteworthy that in two of the last four home games, Shakhtar’s offensive line has failed to score. Goals are unlikely to be abundant in this matchup because Marseille is a team that has been playing under 2.5 goals per game while keeping a clean sheet. Therefore, under 2.5 goals will be our second choice.
