In the last match, they have won (1‑0) at home against Sporting Braga, after in the previous round they have lost (3‑2) in an away match against Sporting Braga.

As one of the best french teams, Marselha are doing a good Internal Championship, and also have all the conditions to move forward in the Europe League.
The team face a discouraged and weak opponent, at home. So, we believe that the gallics take advantage from home factor, conquer the three points and take an important passe to next stage of the competition.

Confirmed Lineup: S. Mandanda, N. N'Koulou, B. Dja Djédjé, B. Mendy, Rolando, M. Isla, R. Cabella, L. Diarra, L. Ocampos, M. Batshuayi, G. N'Koudou.

Analysis of Groningen

The away team is currently in the 4th position, with 1 point won, after 1 draw and 3 losses. In the penultimate round, they have tied an away match against Slovan Liberec by (1‑1). In the last round, they have lost a home match against Slovan Liberec by (0‑1). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 5 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 30 goals scored and 26 conceded; against 8 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses at their stadium, with 21 goals scored and 18 conceded. In their last match, for the Eredivisie, they got an away win against De Graafschap by (1‑2). In the last 10 away matches Groningen has won 1, tied 3 and lost 6.

In this competition, they haven’t won any of the last 4 matches. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded at least one goal in each of the last 4 matches, and their offense hasn’t been one of their best features, as they haven’t scored any goals in 3 of the last 4 matches for this competition. In their away matches there is a tendency for goals, since 21 of the last 22 matches have ended with Over 1,5 goals. In the last 11 away matches for all competitions there is 1 period that stands out: they have conceded 8 of their 20 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Apart from all their current problems, Groningen is clearly the weakest team of this group. Their qualitative level is some places under the opponent of this Thursday, and neither at home they could avoid a defeat, by 3-0, against Marselha. Their weak attack, with a permeable defense and an obvious discouraged, are strong evidences to believe that this team can go out defeated from this match.

Confirmed Lineup: S. Padt, K. Larsen, J. Kappelhof, A. Tamata, H. Hateboer, E. Reijnen, H. Maduro, A. Rusnák, J. Antonia, B. Linssen, D. Hoesen.
Coach: E. van de Looi.

Betting suggestion:

Marselha have all the favouritism to this match justified. They have a much superior team and will play at home.
Thereby, their attack should overcome the opponent defensive, opening way to the victory that, consequently, will open the doors to the qualification.
