What Trueform says for RB Salzburg vs Marseille

RB Salzburg have it all to do in their Europa League tie with Marseille but showed enough in a 2-0 loss in France to suggest they can at least win on the night in Austria.

Goals from Florian Thauvin and Clinton N’Jie put Les Phoceens in pole position to face Arsenal or Atletico Madrid in the final.

However, Marco Rose’s side created enough chances at Stade Velodrome to earn them the vote at 21/20 in our RB Salzburg vs Marseille betting predictions for the second leg.

After falling behind to a controversial Thauvin header which also appeared to touch his hand on its way into the net, Salzburg showed plenty of spirit in the opening encounter.

Stefan Lainer had a low shot well saved, while Yohann Pele had to produce a spectacular stop to deny Hannes Wolf after half-time.

Manager Rose lamented: “We deserved more, but you don’t always get what you wish for.”

However, he added: “It wasn’t to be today, but there’s a second leg in our fortress. If there’s one thing not in our DNA, it’s giving up.”

Salzburg beat Marseille 1-0 at this venue during the group stage and crushed Lazio 4-1 on home turf in the quarter-finals, so the tie is not over.

We do fear the visitors can grab a vital away goal, though, so 12/5 for a home win and both teams to score stands out from the RB Salzburg vs Marseille odds.

Former West Ham star Dimitri Payet was the catalyst for Marseille’s first-leg triumph, setting up both goals.

He whipped in a wicked free-kick cross for Thauvin to nod in on 15 minutes and then teed up Clinton N’Jie on the break just after the hour mark.

Payet said: “The perfect match doesn’t exist, but not conceding a goal is good and scoring twice is even better.”

Former Newcastle flop Thauvin has now netted 22 times in all competitions this term, while ex-Tottenham misfit N’Jie has also rebuilt his reputation with Les Phoceens.

Rudi Garcia’s side have the pace to hurt Salzburg on the counter-attack again here, as the hosts are forced to push forward.

We’re finishing off our RB Salzburg vs Marseille betting tips by taking 33/4 for the French outfit to lose 2-1 on the night but still progress.
